Patagonia introduces new product

This A/W 08 Patagonia are topping the recycled agenda with an industry first in producing the first ever recyclable nylon jacket!
The Shelter Stone is Patagonia’s most durable and stormproof three-layer jacket of which can also be recycled through Patagonia’s Common Threads Recycling Programme.
So while everyone else’s attention remains on organic cotton, why not trust a brand that has been producing organic cotton for over 30 years and whose goal is to have their entire collection produced from recycled products by the next decade!
The outdoor specialists have also introduced two further products to their already-strong product line-up.
First up is the Ascensionist soft shell, and the company states that this is their most water-resistant soft-shell, which has a fast dry time and extreme breathability for full-on alpine climbing and skiing performance.

  • Dense polyester stretch-double weave is exceptionally water-and wind-resistant and is spandex-free for fast drying times
  • Stitch free, lap-glued seams speed dry time, improve water resistance and decrease bulk
  • Helmet-compatible, three-way adjustable hood
  • Brushed chamois patches for chin and neck comfort

Patagonia’s Stretch Element jacket is another worthy addition to their canon. It features:

  • H2No waterproof/breathable, three-layer stretch woven shell
  • Three-layer fabric reinforcements  over shoulders and down sleeves
  • Stitch-free construction reinforced with exceptionally flexible tape, reduces weight, keeps seams drier and reduces abrasion that can compromise fabric performance
  • Helmet compatible, roll-down, three-way adjustable hood with circumference draw cord routed into chest pocket
