Designed for fickle-weather cities like Seattle and Stockholm, this 3-in-1 parka has a 2-layer H2No Performance Standard waterproof/breathable shell made of smooth, windproof polyester stretch twill lined with smooth 100 % recycled polyester. The interior zip-out jacket is insulated with warm Traceable Down (600-fill-power duck down traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure the birds that supply it are not force-fed or live-plucked). Wear the insulation and shell layers together for cold, wet days or separately for milder conditions. The parka has an adjustable snap-on hood, a zip-through stand-up collar that opens flat for cooling and a 2-way full-front zip with snapped storm flap that seals out wind. Front and back princess seams provide a contoured fit. Shell pockets: on-seam welted handwarmers with hidden snaps and an internal security pocket. Zip-out parka has flattering chevron quilting and on-seam handwarmer pockets. Above-the-knee length.
Bluesign Approved Fabric
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers. In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign system partners. Any fabric you see that's bluesign approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
Traceable Down Insulation
Patagonia Traceable Down provides the highest assurance of animal welfare in the apparel industry. Every down cluster, in every one of their down products, comes exclusively from birds that were never force-fed and never live-plucked. How do they know? They hired an independent third-party expert to trace and verify their down supply chain from farm to jacket - and every step in between.
In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. Patagonia was the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system - one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people´s health. Today, they are able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. Patagonia now recycles used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including their own) into polyester fibers to produce many of their clothes. Using recycled polyester lessens the dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
