Material in Black Canyonâ„¢ bags is more durable and lighter than vinyl

OutDoor Fair, FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, GERMANY – Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, today announced the January 2009 release of three new SealLine brand PVC-free products featuring a material that is lighter, more durable and more abrasion resistant than vinyl, and performs better in cold temperatures.

The three SealLine Black Canyon products made with the new material are being introduced in an effort to reduce the demand for superior-performance PVC-based vinyl products, while also keeping the toxic by-products that come from the manufacture of vinyl out of the environment. The SealLine Black Canyon Dry Bag is based on the simple, classic, all-purpose design of the SealLine Bajaâ„¢ Dry Bag, but is lighter, more durable and more abrasion resistant, keeping contents dry, clean and protected in even the most challenging environments. The all-purpose SealLine Black Canyon Gear Bucket is ideal for lugging gear on day excursions in the outdoors whether boating, surfing or road-tripping, and is easy to clean with a hose. The SealLine Black Canyon Boundaryâ„¢ Pack is an ultra-rugged portage pack with breathable and waterproof shoulder straps plus a sternum strap and waist belt for a comfortable fit. As with all SealLine products, the Black Canyon products are made with durable RF-welded seams.

“Our first priority in product design and choice of materials is that it performs to the level we expect for a lifetime of usage,” said Erik Flink, SealLine Brand Manager. “The challenge of using a vinyl alternative has always been finding one that has equal durability at a similar price. We finally found that in this new fabric, which also offered great performance benefits like abrasion-resistance, lighter weight, strength and durability even in cold temperatures.”

The SealLine Black Canyon Dry Bag, Black Canyon Bucket and Black Canyon Boundary Pack will be available in January 2009, ranging in sizes and retail prices of $16.95 to $119.95 USD. Other PVC-free products under the SealLine brand include the Urban Line™ of bags & accessories, Storm Sack, Kodiak™ Window Dry Bag, Electronic Case, HP Map Case, Kodiak Deck Bag, Kodiak Taper Dry Bag and Seal Pak® pack.
