The Antarctic Protector Parka is the world's first expedition-grade parka developed from recycled and recyclable materials to withstand the harshest conditions on earth. The outer shell is made from 27 post-consumer plastic bottles and finished with a Fluorine-free water repellant. The 3-ply fabric achieves the highest waterproof rating of 20,000hh, while the 800-fill 95/5 sustainably-sourced goose down provides insulation to minus 25ºC.
Recycled and sustainable fabrics can be found in every detail. The inner storm cuffs are made from Merino wool; pocket linings and chinguard are a recycled polyester/wool blend; and all of the labels, stitching and webbing are made from recycled polyester.
