POCKET BACKPACK, the bag made from DuPont’s new material, Tyvek, launched February 28th on Kickstarter.
100% recyclable and eco-friendly, POCKET BACKPACK is a light but sturdy Tyvek bag made with high-density polyethylene fibers. Tyvek is a functional paper material invented by DuPont that retains its shape in water and doesn’t tear easily, in addition to being water resistant and highly breathable. When burned, POCKET BACKPACK emits only carbon dioxide and water, with none of the harmful chemicals of other plastics. Plus, the plastic used is 100% recyclable. With excellent air permeability and waterproofness, POCKET BACKPACK won’t get wet when caught in the rain, and can take the shape of a pouch, backpack, tote bag, or mat to match what you need.
As a mat bag, POCKET BACKPACK weighs 284 g (10.01 oz), and sports dimensions of 49 x 44 x 1.5 (cm) / 19.29 x 17.32 x 0.59 (in). When unfolded, the dimensions become 143 x 88 (cm) / 56.29 x 34.64 (in).
As a backpack, POCKET BACKPACK weighs 248 g (8.74 oz) and sports dimensions of 20 x 22 x 3.5 (cm) / 7.87 x 8.66 x 1.37 (in). When unfolded, the dimensions become 59 x 15.74 x 5.51 (in).

When asked about their process, Bags In Bag, the minds behind POCKET BACKPACK, told us “We started with the idea for a portable backpack, and created sample backpacks of about 200 different designs and colors. In 2017, we officially founded our brand, and began developing, researching, and manufacturing all kinds of pouches, completing our worldwide brand registration in 2019.”
“When one of our bags was selected as an Amazon’s Choice product, we founded BAGS IN BAG INC in the US, and began planning our official entry into the US market. We’re overjoyed to launch a bag on Kickstarter that’s both functional and environmentally friendly. But it would mean the world to us to also have the support of our backers.”
With an idea first conceived in February 2018, POCKET BACKPACK officially made its way to Kickstarter in 2022. Once the Kickstarter campaign ends, shipment is expected to begin in June.
