Treehugger day pack

Near Mt Blowhard, VIC

This recent addition to the North Face range has a strong emphasis on sustainable and recycled materials.

A most unusual feature is that the main body fabric is from a worsted merino wool in a gridded ripstop pattern rather than a synthetic material. According to materials from the company, “the wool has been allowed to retain some of its natural oils to add some degree of weatherproofing”.

You can find a review of the pack here.
