My bag has a defect, what should I do?

Our products are built to last, and are inspected at the end of production. However, nobody is perfect, and it happens that one product out of 100 shows a small defect.
If this is the case, please send us photos and a few words on this form so that we can find a solution to the problem.

Can I have my bag repaired?

The durability of our products is at the heart of our thinking when we design a new product. We hope never to have to repair it, but sometimes seams become brittle and zips show little signs of weakness.

For every problem there's a solution: send us a message on this form, and we'll find a way to fix it. Don't throw it away :)

Our Materials and Products

Why did you choose upcycling?

Recovering sports products such as inflatable kayaks, zodiacs, climbing mats, etc. enables us to integrate their technical characteristics into our products. With this second life, we prevent them from being incinerated or landfilled.

To find out more, take a look at our article!

Why is each product unique?

The material of the bags and saddlebags comes from products that have already had a life. Depending on the products, very slight variations may appear (colour, appearance, texture, etc.). A few scratches may also be present but never disturb the use of the products. Quality First !

How do we recover the raw materials?

We recover our raw materials through partnerships with major brands and manufacturers in the sports/outdoor world. Non-repairable customer returns, scrap or offcuts, this waste is a resource for us. Decathlon, Cabanon, Baudelet environment…

Are the products really resistant?

Our raw materials come from very technical outdoor or sports products such as inflatable kayaks, semi-rigid boats. Our products are designed to last as long as possible and are tested in extreme conditions to ensure their quality of use.

How to clean your products?

Backpack 02 / Granite and computer cover: Machine wash cold with natural drying, no dryer.

Outboard weekend bag: A good lukewarm shower will do the trick, always drying naturally.

Frame bag: A few sponge strokes on the too dirty parts and you're done!
