Fabric & Colour Options

If you're ordering a custom bag, there are assigned colour panels for which you can specify your own colours from the swatches below. You can mix all of the options (Ecopak and X-pac) together.

Challenge Sailcloth Ecopak Range

Durable, waterproof & environmentally responsible pack fabric made from 100% recycled polyester, with every yard of fabric containing over 20 bottles. Ecopak is DWR (C0) coated for waterproofness. These fabrics are some of the most recent advances in low carbon emission textile manufacturing.

The EPX & EPLX range with multi-ply construction performs excellently for bikepacking bags.

Ecopak EPLX400

What sets EPLX400 fabrics apart from the EPX200 range is the plastic film laminate on the reverse side, which makes it impossible for water to get through. EPLX400 is slightly heavier than EPX200 and more abrasion resistant. It's still very much an ultralight fabric.

Ecopak EPLX200

EPX200 fabrics perform well all-round on bikepacking bags. They won't be used in high-abrasion areas. It is softer and lighter than EPLX400, so internal structure like foam will be used where suitable to give the product more body. EPX200 are DWR (C0) coated which causes water to bead up, and is backed with a woven ripstop face. Water will penetrate after an amount of rain, however most parts of Paper Roads bags are lined with a water-resistant PU coated liner.
