I've made a few fanny packs and a ~20L commuter backpack with the EPX200. It's a nice stiff, durable fabric that was surprisingly easy to sew with my domestic machine (Jamone 2212). It does hold a crease, so keep that in mind if shipping folded.
Hey Christopher! We agree this is a great fabric for packs. Great tip about it holding a crease, we do offer shipping on a roll if creases will affect your project. Thanks for the review.
Very nice to work with
Thanks for the great review Josiah! Challenge ECOPAK™ EPX200 is a great fabric for a wide variety of uses. It is easy to work with and looks great!
I am using this to make longer backpack straps for an arc haul. I have used VX21 in the past, but it was out of stock. This material is very comparable to the VX21 in how it handles. Nice to have an eco -friendly option too.
Thanks for your review Jim! We're sorry the VX21 was out of stock, but glad you were able to experiment with a new fabric! We'd love to see pictures of your modified Arc Haul! Here is a link if you'd like to share any photos https://forms.gle/P4EHrfiWJ5kajdrE8
Nice fabric, easy to work with. Not as stiff as X-pac. Used Gutterman Tara 40. with a 100/16 needle to get through multiple layers
Thanks for the review and helpful tips Alan! We'd love to see what you created with the ECOPAK 200, be sure to tag us on social media!
I tried to use your 'Print-on-demand' service but I could never get the application to work correctly. I tried emailing and calling several times but no one would get back with me.
Hey Ian, It looks like our Custom Design Tool went down recently. As far as a response from our customer service team, we typically reply within 24-48 hours. The tool us back up and running now!
