dp's stated item weight is the item we weighed at the time. Weights will vary slightly due to construction material manufacturing runs. Thank you for understanding.
We want you to know our gear is not overbuilt and rugged like military issue gear. You will need to handle our gear more carefully than you would much heavier military gear. That said, we are confident you will enjoy hiking further, longer, and more comfortable using dp gear.
All of our fabrics are USA made. All of our labor is Indiana, USA. In our humble opinion, America must bring manufacturing BACK to America.
We get requests for "custom sized" dp products. YES, we will make any of our products a custom size. Email us your request and we will quote your cost.
I'm hoping you will become one of our lightweight ''dp Gear Crew'' members.
