DWR: This coating allows water to form beads and run off the shell fabric instead of being absorbed. The water-repellent outer fabric increases insulation and prevents it from being saturated by liquids, preventing any feeling of dampness.




RECYCLED NYLON: Nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, Patagonia are finally finding some recycled nylon fibres that are suitable for clothing and are an pass rigorous manufacturing and product quality tests.

Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fibre, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fibre.

For Patagonia, incorporating as much recycled nylon as possible reduces dependence on petroleum as a raw material source. It helps reduce waste, which prevents landfill and helps reduce toxic emissions generated by incinerators. It helps promote new recycling streams for nylon products that are no longer usable. Using recycled nylon also causes less air, water, and soil contamination compared to using non-recycled nylon.
