We have also thought through many details for the gym bag. The water-repellent cork base, the zip pocket, the metal cord stoppers and the correct cord thickness are just a few examples.

The perfect companion

If a backpack is too much and a bag is not enough, the gym bag, which is becoming increasingly popular, is used. With a practical drawstring closure, our smuker gym bag is also quickly ready for use. It is the perfect lightweight companion for all your leisure activities, for sports and much more.

Practically beautiful

Thanks to the zipped compartment on the back, you can safely stow important belongings such as keys and mobile phone.

The cork area is also water-repellent and wipeable.

Made from sustainable cotton

For the backpack we use robust organic cotton fabric in canvas quality. Inside is a lighter organic cotton lining.

The canvas cotton is subject to the socially and environmentally compatible GOT standards (GOTS certificate). The printing takes place within the EU in Poland at a modern textile printing company.

Your gym bag is also sewn together with yarn made from organic cotton from the Netherlands.

The cotton cord is made from recycled cotton.

Cork, the good mood material from Portugal

Cork has a uniquely pleasant feel. The harvest is good for our environment and the people who grow cork oaks. Cork oak forests are particularly sustainable biotopes with diverse flora and fauna. Every 9-11 years the tree forms a new bark. A cork oak that is harvested binds 3 times as much CO2 as one that is not harvested. Harvesting is a Portuguese tradition that can only be done by hand. It guarantees forest owners a secure and well-paid existence.

Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit meinem Beutel.
Ich wollte keinen Rucksack, weil ich da immer beim tragen so schwitze. Das ist hier auf jeden Fall besser.

Besonders geschickt ist die Außentasche,, in die ich während des wanderns immer wieder mein Handy hineinstecken und herausholen kann.Eine große Sprudelflasche 1,5l hat sehr gut Platz in dem Beutel. Dazu Vesperdose und Schwimmsachen und Regenschirm. Hier im Urlaub bin ich schon mal voll zufrieden.Es gibt ein Innenstofffutter, wird es nass, zB durch die dchwimmsachen, weil man seine Olastiktüte vergessen hat, oder wenn die Flssche ausläuft, kann man das Innenfutter zum schnelleren trocknen herausziehen.. der Kork, scheint nur ein Immitat zu sein, ist aber sehr gut gemacht.. GesamtVerarbeitung sehr gut. Die Bänder sind angenehm zu tragen, schneiden nicht ein. Bin voll zufrieden.
Allerdings bin ich mir nicht sicher was bei Regenwetter mit dem außen Stoff ist.das habe ich noch nicht getestet, bzw eine lastiktüte drübergezoden. Das korkimmitat wurde von außen ganz nass. Es ließ keine Feuchtigkeit durch..
