OnSight's Sustainable Adventure Travel Gear
Since 1994, British Columbia, Canada-based OnSight Equipment has produced top quality environmentally sustainable outdoors and travel products. Creating durable, functional, innovative and aesthetically appealing gear - for both urban and outdoors applications - continues to be a rewarding process for OnSight. Over the past 23 years, we have designed and produced gear specific for business travelers, hikers, mountaineers, cyclists, jungle & polar explorers, as well as every day life.
All of the materials used to make our products have an impact on our planet, and we believe that maximizing the use of recycled and non-toxic materials in our products can reduce their environmental impact significantly.
60% to 100% of the materials used in nearly all of our products are produced from recycled plastic. These materials include fabric, mesh, buckles, webbing, and zippers. Manufacturing polyester fiber from recycled materials results in 76% less energy use and 71% less C02 emissions then producing polyester from virgin materials.
How our products are manufactured is also important to us, and OnSight frequently audits factories that make both our materials and finished products.
