The Story

Scott Hamlin, the CEO, and Founder of Looptworks is also a Royal Robbins Alumni. During his tenure working for Royal Robbins, Scott was inspired by Royal’s forward-facing vision on clean climbing in the US and how environmental stewardship was key to protecting the world’s wild and natural places.

Taking a page from Royal’s playbook, Scott started looking into the Athletic and Outdoor Industry practices around how to make products more environmentally responsible. In his research, he realized there are many materials being left over in the manufacturing process that end up getting destroyed without ever being used. 

Scott saw an opportunity to use creativity, design, and innovation to rescue these excess materials and upcycle them into new products, which then formed the roots of Looptworks today.

When Royal Robbins wanted to divert their excess materials, naturally, they reached out to Looptworks. Things came full circle for Scott, and a partnership was born. 

We are excited to offer these functional, packable travel bags made from the leftover materials of the favorite Expedition travel shirts. They are ideal for both the outdoors and urban environments and pack into a built-in stuff sack when not in use. Better yet, every product conserves water, avoids carbon emissions, and gives new life to landfill-bound materials. 


Low-impact products aren’t just about how they’re made, but about how they hold up. The longer a product lasts, the less waste we see in the long run.

That’s why everything we make comes with our Loopt4Life guarantee, our ironclad promise that our products can be trusted to last a lifetime.

The almost-perfect travel sling

I have used various bags for my travels but have never until now, found one that is strong, packable, AND has a zipper - yay! This bag is a little smaller than some other bags making it a little too small to use, as a beach bag w/ a towel and such, but it has otherwise served all my needs. I love this bag.

I would have ordered the blue had it been available when I purchased as the white quickly gets dirty, mainly where it sits on your shoulder.

I sometimes put tiny items like keys or my change purse in the tiny stuff sack that hangs inside the bag, but it ripped pretty quickly.
