An outdoor backpack that is eco-friendly? Yes.
The TuziGazi35 is made of an advanced material called Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), which is one of the strongest materials in the market – and it’s recyclable and biodegradable within five years.
Kifflab’s TuziGazi35 may have been manufactured to have a minimal environmental impact, but it was also built tough for all seasons. If you want to protect your gear from the elements, this is the pack for you.
The TuziGazi range is named after two great rivers, Mhlathuze and Mzingazi, which flow into one of the largest natural harbours in the world and Kifflab was born out of experiences between friends who love the outdoors and grew up in the Richards Bay area. They have created their own outdoor brand that focuses on the technical capabilities of outdoor gear with an ethos built around social responsibility, believing that the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products.
The outer bag is ripstop nylon, which is made from recycled materials such as plastic bottles, industrial plastic and waste fabric. The production process is a lot less harmful to the environment than traditional nylon production. Even the tags on the bags are made from recycled paper/cardboard materials.
Here are some specifics:
Height – 52cm (rolled down) / 75cm (unrolled)
Width – 33cm
Depth – 17cm
Can be folded flat for storage.
This bag offers heavy-duty protection from water, dust, sand and dirt. It has heat-welded seams and has a water-resistant front pocket with a heavy-duty zipper.
It floats on the surface of the water when sealed with its air pocket, and has two mesh pockets on either side suitable for 1L bottles.
