    ECOPAK™ from Challenge Sailcloth is the world's first 100% recycled laminated pack fabric - designed from the ground up to meet or exceed the technical properties of traditional laminated nylon while also being good for the environment.

    ECOPAK™ line starts with a 100% recycled REPREVE polyester face, then adds a proprietary 100% recycled film to make everything waterproof. An environmentally friendly, PFC-free C0 DWR also provides water resistance to the face fabric.

    There are a lot of reasons to choose ECOPAK , but here's a short list of the most important ones:

      • 100% recycled construction - everything from the face, to the film, backing, and cross-ply reinforcement
      • Solvent and VOC-free adhesive - unlike many laminates, ECOPAK uses an adhesive glue designed without these harmful chemicals and compounds
      • PFC-free DWR - an environmentally friendly Durable Water Repellant that's non-toxic to humans and doesn't persist in the environment over time
      • 97% UV resistant film - a waterproof layer than will last longer in the sun without delamination or comprised integrity

    All of this recycled ingenuity means that the ECOPAK line uses over 20 plastic bottles and reduces CO2 emissions by over 1 lb with each linear yard. After you're done with it, even the fabric itself can be recycled.

    In short, ECOPAK is easily the most environmentally friendly pack fabric in the world. The choice is yours.

    EPLX400 is a laminate fabric comprised of the following layers:

    - 400D recycled polyester face

    - 45° Blue CrossPly (*adds bias stability, strength, and structure to the fabric)

    - 0.5 mil Challenge RUV recycled film

    Typical applications include packs, bags, totes, accessories, and reinforcement areas.

Made a bicycle frame bag out of the gray - have only used a couple times so far, but the fabric was super easy to work with, and seems much sturdier and holds it's shape much better than previous fabrics I've tried in frame bags. On top of that, it's recycled and pretty darn economical. If it matters to you, note that if you don't order it rolled, it WILL be creased when you get it. I didn't find that to be a big deal, but something to be aware of.

Thanks for leaving a review! It's always helpful for others to read how the fabric feels from others. We'd love to see photos of your bicycle frame bag, be sure to tag us on social media!
