Are the backpacks water resistent?
Our products are strongly water-repellent and the materials are even waterproof. All fabrics are equipped with an laminated foil on the inside from on TPU, PU or PVC which makes the material impermeable up to a water pressure of 1.500 mm. However it is possible that by an extreme flow of water, moisture could get in through seams and zippers. Therefore we speak of “water-repellent” and not “waterproof”. We constantly try to improve these functions on our products. On many items we use water-repellant zippers. Our cotton canvas is equipped with an eco-friendly silicone impregnation (DWR) so that water does not penetrate into the fibers and just rolls off. Depending on the use this effect might weaken after some time.
I would like to renew the water repellency. What products can I use for impregnating your materials?
Our cotton canvas is equipped with an eco-friendly silicone impregnation (DWR) so that water does not penetrate into the fibers and just rolls off. Depending on the use this effect might weaken after some time. If the water is on the fabric and that section begins to darken slightly, water is making its way to the fibers and wetting them. It's time to revive your DWR finish by using a common spray. You can find this spray in sporting good stores or even a drug store around the corner. Follow the instructions carefully and test it on a less obvious area first. Products based on polyester or polyurethane are not equipped with a water-repellency impregnation since they do not soak up water as cotton fabrics. Nevertheless you can apply a DWR-impregnation spray to all of our products depending on your needs.
Are your products vegan-friendly?
All Ucon Acrobatics products that are vegan-friendly. We do not use any real leather on our products. Since a few months we are also an official partner of PETA and have the 'vegan approved' certificate.
Where can I see Ucon Acrobatics "live"? I would like to check the quality before buying

Do magnets cause problems for my electronic devices?
Cameras, vehicle keys, memory cards, USD sticks, CD’s, DVD’s, cell phones and smart phones contain non-magnetic storage media. Therefore, static magnetic fields near those devices can not delete data or permanently damage them. However, compact laptop hard drives and credit cards are more sensitive towards permanent magnets. When in doubt, keep these devices away from magnets.
My product is dirty. What is the best way of cleaning it?
Clean with a damp cloth if necessary. Please do not bleach, tumble dry and iron. Our cotton based products are treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish on silicone base. This finish can be removed if rubbed too much. If the water sits on the fabric and that section begins to darken slightly, water is making its way to the fibers and wetting them. It's time to revive your DWR finish by using a common spray based on silicone.
