New Eagle Creek products for 2017

Now that the travel season is starting we have got some exiting new products from Eagle Creek to keep your posessions well organised while away from home:

There are three new colours in the Pack-It Specter™ Mini Cube Set, which is designed to keep jewelary, hygiene products, and other small travel accessories easily organized, while the padded structure offers protection.

We also have the new Pack-It Specter™ Cinch Organizer in three colours.  The Cinch Organizer is ultra-light and easy to clean, and with six internal pockets it will make certain that all of your toiletries, undergarments, and other products are kept securely throughout all of your travels.

The new Pack-It Specter™ Wristlet Set is perfect for small items like toiletries to medium-sized belongings such as hair brushes. It features a slight padded structure protects contents against the rigors of travel while keeping set lightweight, and the TPU-lined material is easy to wipe clean and stands up against moisture.

Pack-It Original™ Quilted Circle Set is a new take on the cube design, perfect for storing and sorting watches, bracelets, rings, and other assorted accessories as well as larger items such as belts and scarves.  The Integrated quilting protects your bag’s contents.

New Luggage options for 2017 include the new Tarmac 26" and 29" cases and also the Tarmac international carry on case.

Organic Bamboo Eco Wear

Boody doesn’t cost the earth

 Boody is a brand that supports the global trend for all things green and ethical. This is our passion.  

Made from organic chemical free bamboo yarn, Boody bamboo is plantation grown and requires much less water than cotton-based fabrics. Even our box is recycled and printed with vegetable-based ink! Boody doesn’t cost the earth.

Many call it the miracle fabric

 

We care about our planet and all its inhabitants. The Boody Bamboo eco wear concept was born when we discovered how much more sustainable organic bamboo yarn is than organic cotton.

 

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and does not require any fertilizers or pesticides. Importantly, bamboo requires virtually no irrigation, while cotton requires more than 5,000 gallons of water to produce a bit more than 2 pounds.

 

Our love for bamboo grew and grew… we learned that bamboo is harvested like grass, renewing vigorously every season from its offshoots. And bamboo yields up to 30 times more per acre than cotton. Our production process is just as eco-friendly. Our suppliers use only closed loop systems, meaning all water is filtered and re-used.

 

Superbly soft

 

Boody Bamboo Eco Wear – our game-changing Australian brand of fashion underwear and bodywear meets the needs of the woman or man who wants a fashionable garment that fits perfectly, looks and feels fabulous, is healthy to wear and doesn’t cost the earth.

 

Boody fabric has been exclusively sourced and developed from organic bamboo yarn and our garments are therefore seam-free and silky soft on the skin.

 

Boody does not creep or show panty lines and washes and wears beautifully, lasting much longer than your cotton undies.

 

Breathable and Hypoallergenic

 

One of the wonders of bamboo is that its fibre is hypoallergenic. Bamboo fibre naturally contains many micro-gaps, which provide substantial ventilation and moisture absorption. Bamboo fibre is hydroscopic – moisture is shunted away from the body and evaporated rapidly allowing your skin to breathe more easily.

 

Antibacterial and Antifungal

 

Bamboo thrives naturally without pesticides because it contains the super anti-fungal and anti-bacterial bio-agent, Bamboo Kun. This substance is tightly bound to the cellulose molecules and therefore is maintained in our finished Boody bamboo products. Recent studies by the Japanese Textile Inspection Association found these properties were maintained even after 50 washings of Bamboo fabric. The most noticeable benefit is that Bamboo cloth is odour free – odour being an unpleasant by-product of bacteria proliferation. Boody will keep you fresh all day, every day.

 

Anti-static and thermo-regulating

 

Bamboo fibre is much finer than cotton and therefore the fabric is lighter, softer and has a more luxurious drape. The millions of micro-gaps in the yarn make it highly breathable, helping you keep cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

 

The carbon in bamboo is known to have a balanced charge. This means that you won’t get that horrible static feel when you wear Boody.

Boody Bamboo Eco Wear available at Breaking Free in the next few days!!

Paramo

Paramo Alta III

https://www.breakingfree.co.uk/shop/search.php?q=alta+3


Now in stock here at Breaking Free

The original Alta was launched back in the early 1990s as a no-nonsense hill and mountain walking jacket using Paramo's unique Nikwax Analogy fabric technology. It wasn't until 2003 that the revised Alta II appeared and it's taken another 12 years for the Alta III to be announced.

The Alta III is still using Nikwax Analogy, but with mesh pump liner panels in the shoulders and middle back as well as inside the sleeve vents. It also has articulated sleeves and shoulders and is cut long to stop the hem riding up in use and give extra protection low down. The jacket has a multi-adjustable hood that's also been cut to accommodate eyewear and give decent peripheral vision. There are plenty of pockets too.
