As the sunset soul sesh morphs into an autumn eve beach bonfire that morphs into a long night under clear stars, this ridiculously comfy boys’ jacket is down. Its highly compressible, 600-fill-power Traceable Down (which can be traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure the ducks that supply it are not force-fed or live-plucked) maintains core warmth throughout the season. The polyester mini-ripstop shell fabric, treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, is tough and durable; lined with a polyester plain-weave fabric. With two zippered pockets and reflective webbing pulls, a full-zip front that extends up to the collar for warmth and a drawcord hem to adjust the fit. Hand-me-down ID label.
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.
In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.
Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
Patagonia Traceable Down provides the highest assurance of animal welfare in the apparel industry. Every down cluster, in every one of our down products, comes exclusively from birds that were never force-fed and never live-plucked. How do we know? We hired an independent third-party expert to trace and verify our down supply chain from farm to jacket–and every step in between.
