Outdoor Research, manufacturer of functional solutions for human powered adventure, today announced the launch of an entirely redesigned packaging program and sizing system for their innovative Stuff Sack collection. This new packaging, in addition to being more streamlined for the benefit of both retailers and consumers, utilizes materials that are more eco-conscious - while also reducing the overall amount of resources used.

Focusing on using more environmentally friendly materials, Outdoor Research has converted the packaging used for the entire Stuff Sack line from a non-recyclable #5- Polypropylene Plastic to a paper product, CCNB “Clay Coated News Back”, which is made from approximately 80% recycled content. Outdoor Research is using soy-based inks on all new stuff sack packaging as well as 100% water-soluble adhesives. All of the new packaging for Stuff Sack products from Outdoor Research are 100% recyclable.

With the redesign of their Stuff Sack packaging, Outdoor Research has succeeded in increasing space efficiency and improving product communication to retailers and consumers alike. The new packaging designs reduce the surface area used by the former packaging by around 6% on average; total surface area reduction by the collection can range up to 111%. As a result, the new packaging will occupy less merchandise display space, offering retailers increased display options.

Corresponding with the launch of new packaging, Outdoor Research has implemented a new liter-based sizing system that is much easier to read and understand. Product photography of the product inside are clearly visible on the outside of the Stuff Sack packaging, while the structure of all new packaging continues to allow product to be removed for consumers to examine themselves.
