Trade your garbage bags for bikepacking bags – DITW makes it too good to pass up

The UL bikepacking bag manufacturer Dyed In The Wool have started an initiative to make our forests, trails and nature cleaner. We’ll tell you how to participate and save big time on new bags.

DITW stands for ultralightweight bikepacking bags that have been thought out down to the smallest detail, and we’ve already put a set through the wringer (click for review). With the Trail Clean Up campaign, the manufacturer wants to motivate riders to go out and collect trash. That’s a grand idea in and of itself, but there’s also something in it for you, too. For every two bags of trash you collect, you get a 5% discount on your next order at DITW, with a maximum savings of 15% up for grabs for orders over € 100. So if you collect more, you save more. Just take a picture of your trash bags and send it to It couldn’t be any easier! As a bonus, DITW will draw one of the participants every six months, who can look forward to a surprise from their current collection. Now that’s a great initiative, don’t you think?
