PRLog - Aug. 27, 2014 - SIERRA MADRE, Calif. -- Recycled water bottles never looked so good! Ecogear manufactures many of their backpacks using REPREVE materials made from recycled water bottles. REPREVE takes the water bottles, cleans them, chops them up and turns them into chips. After that, the chips gets turned into fabric. With this technology, Ecogear is able to create a whole line of fun and cool bags that are not only green, but stylish, functional and priced right. Every product that Ecogear offers is PVC free and meets all CPSIA standards on phthalates. Our line includes packs for all ages and functions – from Pre-K, the Blue Monkey or Chick, all the way up to traveling business person – our Black Rhino. For Fall 2015, Ecogear introduces a three new product lines – the Dhole, the Rolling Dhole and the Deluxe Ecozoo.
Rolling Dhole Cyan
The Rolling Dhole takes its design cue and good looks from the Dhole – but it adds wheels and a triple stage handle. Perfect for younger children at school or for travelers who want a casual, functional bag that can hold your basic necessities. Ecogear continues to stay true to its sustainable efforts by using REPREVE 900D polyester materials for the Rolling Dhole. Since it does have wheels, the Rolling Dhole is even larger with over 1800 cubic inches of storage. The cavernous main pocket has a padded tech sleeve to fit laptops up to 15 inches and enough depth to also hold your tablet. For younger students, the space will fit your folder, books and pencil boxes. For weekend travelers, shoes, clothes and your toiletry bag will all easily fit inside the main compartment. The front organizer pocket is the perfect size to hold the smaller things someone needs – from keys, to pencils, a snack and a boarding pass. The additional internal mesh zip pocket gives even more storage and organization ability. The side mount wheels give the bag a wider base for a more balanced ride. This is important because when the wheels are too close together, the bag will easily wobble when you are rolling. The ball bearings in the wheel system also give the Rolling Dhole a smooth ride. The smooth, three stage locking handle system works perfect with the bag. The uni-handle design falls right in line with the modern look of the bag.
The Rolling Dhole also comes in a multitude of colors – eight to be exact – you will definitely find one that fits your liking. Colors include pink with a grey zip pop, grey with pink, grey with black, grey with blue, blue with pink, blue with grey, black with bright green and the classic color combination – black on black. Whether you are young, older or somewhere in between, the Ecogear Dhole comes in a color for you.
In terms of the developing the Dhole and Rolling Dhole, Jimmy Chen says “I challenged my designers to come up with a clean, modern looking backpack that really pushes the envelope in terms of using a great material, with all the features, but won’t cost a fortune.” He continues, “We really developed the Dhole and the Rolling Dhole to be multi-functional and multi-dimensional. The tech-sleeve can hold your laptop and your tablet in one place if you want. The clean and simple design appeals to people of all ages and with eight different color options, we believe that everyone can find one they like. This is one of those bags that when you do use it, you will find out how a simply designed bag is so easy to use.” With MSRP of $59.99 for the Rolling Dhole and $34.99 for the Dhole, seems that Ecogear once again is able to build a great bag at an exceptional value.
Ecogear’s new Fall 2015 additions definitely speak to their core principles - building quality bags that are functional, stylish and eco-friendly – all the while, keeping the price that won’t shock you. The clean and modern lines of the new Dhole and Rolling Dhole is a great addition to their current line of backpacks as it can be used by everyone – from tweens to adults. Once again, Ecogear shows that you don’t have to sacrifice quality, style or your wallet in order to go green and be ecofriendly.
