Prima System 2.0 review: minor changes to an already great backpack
This article will be short. There was not much changed to this already great backpack. Since its fruition and first kickstarter deliveries this backpack has changed so much. The two models I have are not much far apart and differer in only one big way. If you would like to read my review check it out here.
The biggest change I can find, after careful inspection is Boundary Supply added a finish to the Hypalon accents. Im not a material expert so my guess is the previous Hypalon was uncoated and raw. This Hypalon was stated, in many reviews including mine, to scratch easily. In my update I added that this was not an issue in the long term as the Hypalon would wear in instead of wear out.
The new Hyapolon seems to be pressed with a wax coating. This is seen on many wallets and handbags. This pressed in wax with hatched design not only increases its weather resistance but is also extremely scratch resistant.
There are two major properties of the bag that change. The first is the bag gets a shinnier look at all its Hypalon accents. The second is the bottom of the bag now has a lower coefficient of friction causing the bag to slip easier. Since the bag is not capable of standing on its own the grippy Hypalon of the past helped the bag stay propped up against a wall.
When Boundary Supply says they are selling a Prima System 2.0 I think its more of a summation of all the changes that were made up to this point. An accumulation of small but appreciated design adjustments to a durable backpack. There is still a few minor changes I would love to see in the bag but I would prefer to see those ideas implemented in a complete overhaul and release of a new backpack. Weather it is the 2.0 or the original, the Prima System will continue to be my trusted EDC backpack.
