The winter offers so much time for different adventures. Whether you're whizzing down the slopes on skis or on a snowboard, going for a walk along the icy coast or hiking through the woods at home, the SYMPATEX® Thermal Jacket is perfect for any occasion. The outer material is waterproof and windproof and seams are taped at the important points. Despite its good heat retention, the jacket is also light and fits close to the body so that you have all the freedom you need to move. And no need to worry: thanks to the breathable membrane, the jacket doesn't turn into a portable sauna as soon as you make the slightest movement in the sun.
The material from SYMPATEX® and the fleece lining are made from recycled polyester, the waterproofing is free from PFCs and PFOAs, the membrane is free from PTFE, and thanks to the purity of the materials the jacket can also be recycled again after you're done with it. Several pockets make sure you have enough space for your hands, mobile phone, spare change and ski pass. The adjustable cuffs, sleeves and hood make sure that you're well sheltered from the wind and won't get cold. So, get the jacket on and get yourself outside. There are no more excuses.
Recycled and with carbon offset production: we are proud to be one of the first sport and streetwear brands to offer a fully recycled outdoor jacket that has been made completely carbon-neutral, together with fabric membrane manufacturer SYMPATEX® and climate action consultants 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® Thermal 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 coat and balanced it out by supporting an important forest conservation project in Kenya.
