Stuff-Lite - The Creation of Lightweight, Color Coded, Camping Stuff Sacks
At SMr ILLUMINATE we squeeze every last drop of reusable materials into useful products. The Double Stuff-Lite and Stuff-Lite are a great example, they are made from the same fabric used on the Nubé rain protection(tarp portion). The fabric is a durable 40D SilNylon Ripstop that has multiple layers of silicone applied - this gives increased waterproofing and strength. We literally have miles of "waste" fabric that we sort through and repurpose into useful products, it's tedious work but decreases our company's waste footprint substantially.
The new Stuff-Lite line of bags is an easy way to sort and organize your gear, you can mix and match sizes and colors to suit your needs. For instance, I always pack my food in the Spruce Tip Stuff-Lite (Medium), my clothing in the Steel Grey Stuff-Lite (Large), and any tools in the Burnt Orange Stuff-Lite (Small). Doing this over and over again really helps me to pack efficiently and then find items quickly.
We have created three handy sizes for organizing your gear:
- Large ~ 7.0 liters
- Medium ~ 3.5 liters
- Small ~ 1.9 liters
For all of our Stuff-Lite bags we use double stitch seaming in all joining seams, after all, what good is a bag that doesn't hold things when you need it to. To increase volume we used a square bottom for each bag, this really makes it easy to jam a lot of camping gear in and it also allows the Stuff-Lite to be placed vertically on the ground - which is handy when you are trying to prepare dinner! We'll have these for sale on our website in about two months so stay tuned!
Thanks for checking in! We are developing a lot of new products in the Sierra Madre Research Stitch room, so stay tuned for more!
