Freitag has been known for their sturdy bags made from truck tarps for the past 25 years, but today there’s been a plot twist: the Zurich-based company announced that they’ll be adding fabric made from recycled PET plastic bottles as their second main bag material.
The announcement comes in the form of the F610 CINNAMON, a multipurpose drawstring bag made from a combination of Freitag’s signature truck tarps and a lightweight, softer textile made from the recycled PET bottles.
Thanks to the more flexible 100% recycled PET bottle textile, the small bag can expand to fit enough items for a day or potentially even weekend trip (depending on how often you like to shower, that is) while still maintaining Freitag’s classic, rugged aesthetic. A handy pocket on the bag’s front is the perfect size for storing your phone, keys and wallet—and it snaps shut with a large magnetic closure to keep valuables secure. The F610 CINNAMON can be worn either as a backpack or held in-hand with the two upright truck tarp straps. As always, each Freitag bag is unique because no two truck tarps are exactly the same.
The new bags were so popular that the first batch is already sold out online! But have no fear—there will be a second batch up for purchase in a few hours.
