    Can someone advise if the Latitude is constructed completely of the 840 Cordura? I can't exactly tell from the Klim website.

    I bought a Overland, and love the fit. Considering upgrading to Latitude if the abrasion resistance is substantially better. Seems the Overland's back is just Gore-Tex, which is a little concerning.

    Thanks

    RevZilla lists two different versions of the Latitude: the 840 and the Misano. The Latitude 840 is the one made of 840D Cordura that you're looking for.

    And the back on the Overland, though not particularly beefy, is not "just Gore-Tex". Gore-Tex itself is just a membrane and is always laminated to something in this type of application.

    Is there any difference, other than fabric, between the 840 and Misano?

    Also, how does Misano compare to other commonly found fabrics for abrasion?
