I used to be a Broken Wetsuit - Backpack

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Here is a backpack made from a broken Wetsuit. Wetsuits are very difficult to recycle and can take up to 100 years to biodegrade. These bags have a fold down top and close with a plastic clip and a front zipped pocket. Wetsuit material is tricky to sew so pockets are often a little wonky, but this is the beauty of this material. These bags are all very much unique as parts of wetsuit have been stitched together to make larger sections, this is very time consuming but you will not get any 2 of these bags the same.

They have a handle (made from the zip pull of a wetsuit) so they are easy to carry and have two adjustable backpack straps. Perfect to store your items for specially after a swim for example, but also has many uses! The webbing strap by the clip also has part of a punctured inner tube to keep the end of the strap safe. 

This bag measures when closed, 18” high and 15.5” across tapering to 9.5” across at the base. Unfolded, when fully open, the bag is 24” high. What is great about this bag is it has a tapered base meaning it’s roomy with a boxy base. This then tapers towards the top. The back pack straps go to about 28” at the longest but of course these can go smaller also as they are adjustable.

As this is made from a broken wetsuit, the material is floppy and so the bag sometimes sits a bit funny. the material is stretchy and difficult to sew so is sometimes very slightly wonky or organic shaped, but this is the beauty of the material.

Please note, as the material used it repurposed, there may be some signs of wear or markings on these items but this is the beauty of them. It is important to know that the bags are not waterproof due to the upcycled material and the stitching used to create these items. Due to this material the items may be slightly organic shaped!
