GoLite, the world’s premier producer of high performance and sustainable outdoor equipment and apparel, announced today the Spring 2010 TraveLiteâ„¢ Collection is now available. The TraveLiteâ„¢ Collection is lightweight, durable, value-priced and designed to eliminate the need for checking luggage. Committed to bringing sustainably-made performance products to market, the entire TraveLiteâ„¢ Collection is made with Tier 1 recycled nylon â€“ making it the first-ever eco-friendly carry gear of its kind.
Through extensive testing, GoLite has found that Tier 1 recycling is the best procedure for creating technical materials from recyclable components. Results have shown that Tier 1 recycled nylon is as durable as virgin petroleum-produced alternatives, but also yields an impressive 70% reduction in energy use and CO2 emissions.
The new TraveLiteâ„¢ Collection features the TraveLite Wheeled Carry-On, TraveLite Convertible Carry-On, TraveLite Messenger Bag, TraveLite Backpack and TraveLite Tote. These styles are informed by GoLite’s longtime dedication to practices and materials that are sustainable, high performance, and lighter than comparable offerings. They are available now on www.golite.com.
Also new for Spring 2010, Tier 1 recycled nylon will replace virgin nylon in 100% of the pack fabrics in GoLite’s collections. The new Spring 2010 Peak pack, and the popular Quest and Jam packs, are now exclusively available at REI.com and select REI stores, perfect timing for the holidays.
