I just landed back in the states and before leaving sold my old Coyote to a friend that needed it. I was ready to pick up another Coyote and then heard from a friend that also uses the Coyote. He saw the new 2013 model Coyote and claimed that the new material that is being utilized feels quite thin and flimsy in comparison to the prior model (truckers tarp) Coyotes material. My love for the Coyote is due to how bombproof they are and now have concern based on the observations of a riding bud. Can you please give me an insight and specs into the new construction material that is being used on the Coyote? Thanks heaps!!
You guys kill me sometimes! Our bags are made with the EXACT SAME materials they have ALWAYS been constructed from: 22 oz vinyl coated polyester (aka truckers tarp), reinforced with ballistic nylon, custom-woven ballistic webbing on attachment straps, Nylike webbing on compression straps, military-grade thread, the heaviest YKK zippers, military-spec fasteners - 100% Made In USA. AND backed by the industry's ONLY limited lifetime warranty.
