Lafuma’s first eco-designed technical hiking backpack, the Eco 40 is made from hemp (65 percent) and recycled polyester (35 percent) using simple cuts that limit the need for excess material. A TPE coating provides waterproofing without heavy metals and only the hemp fabric is dyed, avoiding another processing stage and reducing dyeing chemicals by 35 percent. The pack’s design includes a Ventilight backsystem, a double compartment with access via the pack bottom, metallic buckles, a hydration pocket with tube port, and camera, document, side, and belt pockets.
