This Epperson Mountaineering Packable Tote Is Made From Vintage Parachute Fabric

A unique tote bag is a valuable thing. A bag like this Epperson Mountaineering Packable Parachute Tote, for instance, practically pays for itself if you use a bag every day. Function aside, you’d be using an up-cycled material, which means your dollar is stretched even into the past. That’s what sustainability is really about– cutting down on waste — and cheers to Epperson Mountaineering for championing that.

Epperson chopped and screwed some 70s/80s-era Army parachutes into these lightweight grocery sacks. Don’t stop at groceries- throw your EDC, books, water bottle, spare layer, and technology into this Parachute Tote. Each of these 19 liter OD green parachute bags is one of a kind in their patterning, not to mention element and tear-resistant, they’re handled with mil-spec tubular webbing for handles (and web attachments). There’s even a drawstring closure which is sure to come in handy when you actually need to use the bag as a miniature parachute.
