Lafuma Eco 40
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.
Here's what other sites are saying:
You might think a backpack made with eco-friendly fabric would be like wearing a no-frills burlap sack on your back. Lafuma's Eco 40 Backpack is here to prove that theory very wrong. Lafuma made the Eco 40 with hemp and recycled polyester fabric, and they didn't skimp on the extras either. A stretch, ventilated back panel helps prevent back sweat, the steel spring rod frame supports your hiking gear, and ergonomic waist and shoulder belts feel comfortable all day long. The Eco 40 daypack has dual compartments, bottom and top access, and gusseted side pockets. Pull the included rain cover out if the weather turns ugly.
