-- 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.
The Dhole is a great new addition to the Ecogear line up of packs for teens and adults. The backpack offers a classic look with its clean and modern lines. But don’t be fooled by the clean and uncluttered appearance. Unzip the main compartment and you will find a nice, padded laptop sleeve with a buckle closure to keep it together. The tech sleeve holds laptops up to 15 inches or your tablet. There is ample storage for books, folders and anything else you can put in there, with over 1500 cubic inches of storage. The bright color-pop liner is also perfect when searching for smaller items that may be in the bottom of the backpack. Constructed of rugged and durable 900D polyester fabric from REPREVE, this backpack was built to last. Unzip the front organizer pocket and you will find an easy to use clip to hold keys, and a simple organizer for your pens/pencils. There is also a mesh zippered pocket, which is a nice feature to have to keep things organized. The additional quick access pocket located on the front of the bag is great to hold things you need to get to easily.
The 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 additional features and the recycled fabrics really make the Deluxe Ecozoo line the perfect bag for kids of all ages. 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.
