Cotec EPO™ Tarpaulin
We use Cotec EPO™ tarpaulin fabric for our Tarmac Duffels, Black Mamba duffle pack, and Diamond Activity Bags. EPO™ is a non-toxic, environmentally-friendly alternative to PVC coatings - which outperforms any other material in this category. We're confident in this claim, as we've tested our duffels extensively from both polar regions, to the Himalaya mountains, to the equator, and always back home to the 'Wet Coast' of British Columbia.
EPO™ can be recycled in-process, post industrial, or post consumer. Water and carbon dioxide are the primary by products of this fabric, therefore it can be incinerated cleanly. For decades, PVC has been the primary material used for fabrics in bags and luggage. Using EPO eliminates the detrimental effects this chemical has on the environment. No dioxins, heavy metals, chlorine, or phthalates are created during EPO™ production, and it meets current European regulations.
