Performance 15K Waterproof & 15K Breathability
The outer fabric is 100% Recycled Polyester made from post consumer waste, ie plastic bottles.
The membrane is 100% Recycled Polyester ECOSHIELD. This recycled Polyester membrane is comprised of 85% Polyester film waste + 15% recycled bottles. It’s also GRS & BlueSign certified. The waste from membrane production would usually be discarded, but this waste is cut into fragments, processed into small granules and then combined with recycled bottles into a new high-performance waterproof and breathable membrane. It’s also possible to recycle ecoSHIELD membrane at the end of the garment’s life, meaning that your garment can avoid being added to the ever-increasing percentage of textiles going into landfill each year.
The backing is 100% Polyester 20D jersey, helping to keep the fabric lightweight and flexible and also making it possible for the fabric to be recycled at the end of the garment’s life.
The DWR is PFC Free C0 and also has a Plasma finish (Super DWR) which helps to lengthen the working life of the DWR between reapplications. After 50 washes: 80~90% water repellency remains After 100 washes: 70~80% water repellency remains
