Dimension-Polyant Introduces Sustainable X-Pac® Fabric Collection

New RX laminates are made with domestically-sourced recycled materials and manufactured in Dimension-Polyant’s 100% climate neutral US facility

Dimension-Polyant, the world’s largest sailcloth producer and manufacturer of X-Pac® lightweight, durable and 100% waterproof laminates developed for packs and bags has launched its new RX line of sustainable fabrics, which are certified cradle-to-gate climate neutral and carry the company’s cleenTEC® seal.

Ready to tackle the outdoor elements, X-Pac® RX 3-layer laminates are made with a 100 percent post-consumer polyester face fabric and X-PLY® reinforcement. The recycled polyester fiber is made from discarded PET bottles sourced in the USA.  As with all X-Pac® materials, the RX laminates are made in Dimension-Polyant’s Putnam, CT facility, which is 100 percent climate neutral.

  • RX15: Lightweight 150 denier face fabric for rapid ascent packs, pouches or as a great liner for a technical pack.
  • RX30: A 300 denier face fabric that features the most balanced construction for performance outdoor or urban applications.
  • RX36: Highly technical face fabric blending the performance of the 300 denier fiber and durability of 600 denier fabric. Great for day packs, frame bags and travel bags.

Dimension-Polyant’s Putnam, CT and Kempen, Germany production facilities have been 100 percent climate-neutral since early 2021. Carbon emissions have been recorded within the DIN ISO 50001 framework and significantly reduced through the use of green electricity, green gas and other measures. All remaining emissions are being reduced by our climate offset program in corporation with ClimatePartner and its Plastic Free Oceans climate protection project.

Dimension-Polyant minimizes its environmental impact by producing the highest quality and long-lasting materials to help keep products out of the landfill. To help consumers identify its eco-friendly materials, Dimension-Polyant developed its cleenTEC® seal. Materials carrying the cleenTEC® seal are guaranteed climate neutral and include recycled or bio-based components.

“We are really excited about our new RX line as feedback from brand partners has been very positive,” said North. “The RX fabric line is the first of many eco-friendly pack materials on our journey to further developing sustainable and durable material solutions to help brands build the best packs possible.”
