Even a knife fight. It's puncture proof.

“Better safe than sorry.” Words, however cliche, to live by. Plus, you never know when you may need to make a quick escape in a flash.

To carry your survival tools, you’ll want The Dyneema Patrol Pack.

New from Best Made, the Pack is crafted from Dyneema, a ballistic fabric that’s also been used in sails for America’s Cup racing — so it’s extremely puncture proof, water resistant and lightweight. Also: Stronger than Kevlar and 15 times stronger than steel.

Oh, and stab-proof.

To show off its strength, Best Made reversed the fabric so you can see the “pattern of resilient fibers running through it.” The 40L bag also features a large front-loading compartment (so you can pack while it’s lying down), four additional pockets and compartments, tonal nylon “axe-securing” webbing, YKK zippers and a water-resistant cotton twill lining.

Only 40 are available. If you miss your chance, or you find the $598 price point a bit steep, check out our list of 15 adult-worthy backpacks.
