Water resistant: what does it mean?

Water resistant is a term we use to describe our products that are able to withstand the effects of water, either in terms of light splashes or longer-term exposure.

Water resistant items typically have coatings or treatments applied to them to protect them from the effects of water. These treatments are designed to repel water and keep it away from the item, ensuring that it is not damaged or affected by the liquid.

We design our sling bags & accessories so that you can be caught out in the rain and not worry about your gear inside, but water-resistant material can only stand up to so much rain.

If you’re doing more hardcore stuff, like backpacking during a monsoon, or trekking the Amazon rainforest, you’ll probably want to take cover.

    Why do we produce in China?

    Product care

    Caring is cool.


    Hand clean only Iron on low temperature Line dry

    Hand clean only; take a damp cloth and dab or wipe clean the soiled area.

    Please avoid using detergent where possible, as this will leave behind residue that will clog up the fabric’s micropores and reduce the effectiveness of the waterproofing.

    It is worth noting that waterproofing treatments naturally deteriorate over time. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable.

    If you need to replenish the DWR (waterproofing), use a specialist gear waterproofing treatment.

    Always clean with specialist cleanser before being treated.

    Line dry only.

    And enjoy for years to come.

    The Ocean Collect Project

    The Ocean Collect Project.


     the ocean plastic project collect paris

    The ocean fabric used in this product has stopped some of the 1.5 million tons of plastic that flow down the Yangtze River, China, per year, from ever reaching the Pacific Ocean.

    In doing so, it also created jobs for the local fishermen and collectors who removed the plastic, who had previously lost their income due to environmental regulations that apply fishing bans in the Yangtze River and the surrounding sea.

    The ocean fabric also reinforces local recycling infrastructures along the rivers and shorelines by intercepting waste before it arrives in the ocean, landfills, on the streets, and on river banks.


    The environmental footprint

    The Environmental Footprint.


    Our ocean waste fabric production is designed to be energy, CO2 and water-efficient.

    The production uses 70% less energy, 75% less CO2, 86% less water than non-recycled fabrics. 

    To create a new batch of fabric, we need to remove 10 tons of plastic per collection in order to fill the recycling cylinders. The Environmental Impact Report of our fabric production can be found below.




    Our commitment to carbon neutrality

    We clean up after ourselves.

    By primarily supporting groundbreaking technologies that remove carbon for a minimum of 1,000 years.

    Ecommerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.


      Here's how it works: for every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.


      Let's meet a few of the companies removing carbon from the sky.
