Even in winter, nature is our favourite playground and we want to spend a lot of time outside. That's exactly the reason why we've developed thermal jackets. This functional jacket with a recycled SYMPATEX® membrane and fleece lining defies any weather. The outer material is waterproof and windproof and seams are taped in all important places. This means you'll effortlessly withstand any rain shower or snow flurry. 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. Adjustable cuffs and sleeves make sure that you won't get cold and are protected against the wind. The hood is adjustable so that even a helmet fits underneath. Thanks to the dark blue colour and the tonal details, this jacket is easy to wear with anything and can be your stylish companion for more than one season.
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.
