Would you like to invest your money in a functional winter coat which lasts more than one season and doesn't harm your favourite thing, nature? For everyone who likes to roam free in nature in the winter, we've developed this thermal jacket. The recycled SYMPATEX® membranes together with a fleece lining make sure that you're warm and dry in windy and stormy weather. Despite this, the jacket is still lightweight and slim cut. This means you don't have to carry around any unnecessary weight and you have optimal freedom to move. You'll be kept warm and dry even with temperatures around freezing point and wet conditions. The SYMPATEX® material and the fleece lining are made from recycled polyester, whilst the waterproofing is free from PFCs and PFOAs and the membrane is free from PTFE. Thanks to the high grade of material purity, the jacket can also be recycled again once you're done with it. Spacious pockets give you enough room for hands, your mobile phone, spare change and a ski pass. The adjustable waistband, cuffs and hood make sure that you won't catch a chill and that you stay protected from the wind. In black, it's easy to wear with anything and you can be sure that you'll still like it next season.
Recycled and produced with carbon offset: we're proud to be one of the first brands in the sport and streetwear sector to offer a completely carbon neutrally produced functional jacket together with the membrane manufacturer SYMPATEX® and the climate protection consultancy ClimatePartner.
How does carbon offsetting work?
Despite the conscious choice of environmentally friendly materials and partners, it is inevitable that greenhouse gases are released during the production process. To keep CO2 emissions as low as possible, here at bleed we use only recycled or biodegradable materials in our collections, we keep an eye on water consumption and we use electricity from renewable energy sources.
With the SYMPATEX® Active Jacket, production takes place in China which means the transportation routes are a bit longer. That's why we wanted to go a step further: together with SYMPATEX® and ClimatePartner, we calculated the environmental footprint that results from producing this jacket and balanced it out by supporting an important forest conservation project in Kenya.
