Why are our rain covers grey when some trekkers want them to be brightly coloured?
The grey colour used for the covers of our trekking rucksacks is neutral because it consumes less dye.
The component is made of BITON: this process allows us to lower our CO2 impact and reduce consumption and water pollution in comparison to coloured models.
These small measures demonstrate the commitment of Forclaz to improve the environmental impact of its products.
Our engineers have carried out simulated ageing tests on these backpacks.
The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. The results enable Forclaz to guarantee the tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date shown on the receipt
