The Urbanion ECO Collection - helping keep our planet cleaner one bag at a time.
Asheville, North Carolina (September 24th, 2021)
- Feelfree Gear, known for its adventure based waterproof dry bags, introduces the Urbanion ECO Collection, commuter style dry bags made of materials sourced from recycled plastic bottles for the urban eco-conscious consumer.
The all new 2022 Urban ECO Collection is the latest offering by the veteran adventure, travel and lifestyle bag maker. For over a decade, the factory has been actively recycling materials to be used in the manufacturing process. Today, Feelfree Gear continues to do its part to help curb single use plastic waste by taking on a new initiative, not only repurposing excess materials, but utilizing recycled materials in the products themselves.
The company knows it may be difficult for a single person to make a significant impact so is encouraging consumers to begin making conscious decisions by selecting eco-friendly products such as the Urbanion ECO Collection.“We all know the future of our planet is in the hands of the human race, even more so on those companies who manufacture products that we all use on a daily basis,” said Sakun Khieowan, Bag Designer and Head of Joy Sports. “We are taking action and have committed to doing whatever we possibly can to help make a difference starting with the introduction of Urbanion ECO collection - using recycled materials and reducing waste in the process.”
What makes the Urbanion ECO Collection unique is the sourcing of PET Plastic Recycled Fabric as one of the key manufacturing materials combined with its signature waterproofing technology. Through a unique process of turning bottles into this fabric, the company was able to design a series of multifunction bags that are not only eco-friendly, stylish and lightweight but are extremely durable with twice the strength of cotton. Weather and dust proof materials are a key feature of all Feelfree Gear products. The bags also feature Duraflex plastic hardware and waterproof zippers ensuring valuables stay safe even in the most extreme weather conditions.
The Urbanion ECO line up offers a variety of multi-purpose models to compliment an individual's urban lifestyle needs, including traditional commuter style backpacks and messenger bags, a personal crossbody bag for smaller items and a two in one bike/back pack system. Each bag is available in three sleek color combinations including black, grey and olive with black and orange accents.
The full collection includes:
- Urbanion ECO Backpack L
- Urbanion ECO Backpack M
- Urbanion ECO Messenger Bag
- Urbanion ECO Crossbody Bag
- Urbanion ECO Bike Backpack
The bags are currently available through select distribution partnerships in Europe, Asia, North and South America and Australia with continued expansion internationally.
