The Importance of Stitching

The Importance of Stitching

Stitches are measured per inch and require a better balance. Typically, backpacks have 6010 stitches per inch. Less than 6 and the backpack starts to lack reliable strength.

Conversely, going above 10 can cause the strength to degrade as the structural integrity is lost by interrupting the threads. This is important for load bearing areas, such as where the shoulder straps are connected to the body of the backpack.


If buying a backpack, always check the stitching around the straps to make sure they are in perfect condition. Check out our backpacks, tablet bags and patrol bags.
