Do you cycle to work even when its windy or raining? Are outdoor sports your number one hobby? Is your motto ‘there’s no bad weather, just bad clothing’? Then the SYMPATEX® Active Short Coat is the perfect winter coat for you. Our SYMPATEX® Active Coat combines on-trend design with highly functional features. The recycled SYMPATEX® membrane protects you in any weather. The seams have additional taping at critical points so that the coat is waterrepellant and windproof but still breathable. The coat is lined inside with recycled and recyclable PrimaLoft® Black™ padding. A two-way zipper, adjustable cuffs and an adjustable, helmet-compatible hood make sure you have a perfect fit. An adjustable waistband means the coat can be adapted to your figure, ensuring a flattering fit. Two side pockets have enough space for all your bits and bobs, while your mobile phone and keys can be kept safe in an inside pocket. The SYMPATEX® material and the PrimaLoft® Black™ lining are made of recycled polyester, the waterproofing is free from PFCs and PFOAs, the membrane is free from PTFE and, due to the high purity grade, this coat can also be recycled again when you’re done with it. Even with its high practicality, this short coat has a stylish cut and is therefore perfect for everyone who doesn’t want to compromise on style and design.
Recycled and produced with CO2 offsetting: We’re proud to be one of the first brands in the sportswear and streetwear branch to work together with the membrane producer SYMPATEX® and the environmental consultants ClimatePartner to offer a functional coat that is produced in a completely carbon-neutral way.
How does carbon offsetting work?
Despite our environmentally conscious choice of materials and partners, unavoidable greenhouse gases are emitted in the production chain. To keep CO2 emissions as low as possible, bleed uses only recycled or biodegradable textiles in its collections, monitors water consumption and uses energy from renewable sources.
Production of the SYMPATEX® Active Coat takes place in China, meaning that the transportation routes are longer. That’s why we want to go one step further: Together with SYMPATEX® and ClimatePartner, we calculate the carbon footprint generated by manufacturing this coat and offset it by supporting a great forest conservation project in Kenya.
