The bags will be manufactured wholly of two materials identified as “Light Model” and “Basic Model”. The “Light Model” will be of a nylon exterior surface with Polyurethane (PU) laminate backing. The “Basic Model” will be of all Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) sheeting and polyester end panels. Each bag have permanently attached plastic and metal mounting components, poly stiffeners and plastic buckles. All straps are of nylon webbing. The bags are products of Germany. The samples are being returned.
