The take-everywhere classic sling design with just the right amount of organization and close-fitting comfort.
Polyester fabric made of recycled content. Patagonia uses scraps from the cutting room floor and other polyester manufacturing waste, as well as post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic bottles to help close the loop.
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Although Patagonia has been using recycled polyester in their garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, Patagonia has finally find some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel. Some of the recycled nylon Patagonia uses comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.
