World’s First Carbon Neutral Backpack, made from 100% Recycled Plastic with embedded Captured CO2 Emissions

Dubbed the 38L Hybrid Duffle Pack, this backpack has an entire laundry list of impressive features, from a shapeshifting design that goes from backpack to duffle mode, to a 100% storm-proof design, and a fabric that uses 123 recycled plastic bottles and captured CO2 to help make the backpack carbon neutral while enhancing the strength. If that wasn’t enough, the backpack was designed in collaboration with Ed Stafford, a renowned English explorer and survivalist who holds the Guinness World Record for being the first human ever to walk the length of the Amazon River… so if the 38L Hybrid Duffle Pack is good enough for Stafford and his outlandish lifestyle, it can definitely take yours!

The 38L Hybrid Duffle Pack’s entire personality is the outdoors while looking sleek enough to excel in urban environments. Designed in collaboration with Ed Stafford and made with recycled plastic waste, the 38L Hybrid Duffle Pack shows that it’s absolutely possible to build a product that’s equal parts sustainable and hyper-functional.

Backpack – Robust semi-detachable shoulder straps with stabilizers for extra comfort.

Hand Carry – Three exterior robust grab handles for hand carry.

Duffle – Detachable waist belt transforms into comfy shoulder strap for shoulder and cross-body carry.

The hyper-functionality starts with the bag’s hybrid design, which rapidly alternates between handheld, side duffle, and backpack styles. The bag comes with a detachable duffle-style shoulder strap, a semi-detachable backpack harness with stabilizers, and 2 side handles to facilitate the three carrying styles. With all the straps tucked away, it can be carried like a briefcase. Pop the duffle-style shoulder strap on and you have a side-sling duffle bag… pop the two backpack harness straps on and you’ve got a backpack. The backpack mode can further be reinforced with the duffle-style strap transforming into a secure waist belt letting you carry heavy items with ease as the bag hugs your back to prevent strap burn.

Made to easily withstand the extreme outdoors, the bag comes with a 100% storm-proof design that’s also backed by maker GROUNDTRUTH’s 10-year warranty. The fabric on the exterior uses a yarn made from recycled PET bottles. Bottles are collected, treated, and shredded into thin strands, that are then woven into a yarn. The yarn is then weaved into a durable textile with a 600D ballistic property and a tristop weave. . The high-performance fabric is absolutely water-proof, and the bag’s panels are stitched together with the triangular ripstop weave that prevents them from fraying, splitting, or tearing. Waterproof YKK lockable zippers help keep your bag’s contents dry and safe no matter how inclement the weather.

As its name indicates, the backpack comes with 38 liters of inner capacity and a size large enough to store a 16″ laptop in the exterior fleece-lined laptop compartment. The bag comes with two main compartments (which open all the way in the clamshell style), along with four exterior front lash pockets. A top-access pocket also lets you store your EDC, with a dedicated keychain holder, and bottle holders on each side of the bag let you store up to two 1L bottles.

The bag’s sustainable approach sets it apart from anything we’ve ever seen. While the exterior fabric uses recycled plastic bottles, the interior lining is made from 100% recycled fishing nets using zero dye. GROUNDTRUTH’s patent-pending process also involves embedding captured CO2 into the recycled plastic hardware, making it up to 40% stronger than virgin plastics. To finish things off, the textiles are coated with an advanced water-based coating, with zero VOCs. GROUNDTRUTH also works with Bluesign®-certified partners, ensuring equitable conditions for its workers all the way down the supply chain.

The bag truly shows a remarkable balance between sustainability and functionality. Purposefully designed to help mitigate the effects of humanity’s wasteful decisions, the bag comes with a carbon-neutral design that’s further reinforced by the fact that it’s ridiculously durable, and is backed by a 10-year warranty. Made for travel, the 38L Hybrid Duffle Pack is cabin-friendly, and is available globally in two colors – ECO-X Black, and Ice Sheet Blue, for a discounted price of $249.

The 38L Hybrid Duffle Pack is part of GROUNDTRUTH’s award-winning RIKR range collection.
