Overview

Ultra-lightweight and extremely packable jacket developed for up-tempo activities such as fast hiking. Fløyen Jacket is groundbreaking in many ways. It’s not only our most lightweight jacket ever made, it is also one of our most sustainable pieces ever. Fabrics used in this garment is made from 100 % recycled polyamide, which makes the jacket very durable, quick-drying, wind resistant and provide excellent breathability. With a little help from the PFAS-free WR treatment it is also water-repellent. On the front, the material is doubled in order to obtain extra wind protection when moving fast forward. To avoid frictional wear, enhance comfort and give the product a longer lifespan, the seams on the shoulder and in the sides are staggered backwards. Fløyen Jacket is part of our Fløyen series, a collection of highly versatile products developed for fast moving activities on and off the beaten tracks. They hold first class functionality and feel so comfy you can’t wait to get moving.

Sustainability

  1. Recycled Polyamide

Recycled Polyamide

Our aim is to steadily increase the use of recycled materials in all our products and we continuously work to utilize more and more new fabrics containing recycled raw materials. We currently use different types of recycled polyamide fabrics in products such as down garments as well as shell garments.

Polyamide, sometimes also referred to as Nylon, normally uses fossil resources for its production. By re-using existing material streams we can save fossil resources and reduce the energy demand and therefore climate emissions, as well as water used for production.

We know from studies we have conducted on our products together with an independent environmental consultancy that the use of recycled materials can significantly lower the environmental and climate impact of products compared to using new materials.

One example is a recycled polyamide fabric we use for shell garments, where CO2 emissions can be reduced by 76 %, while the amount of waste water is reduced by 84 % -compared to the production of new virgin polyamide. This can simply be done by re-using fabric waste from production. The result is a super high functional fabric, which delivers in terms of sustainability as well.

The most common raw material for the production of recycled polyamide is waste material from textile production (so-called pre-consumer material). The need for pure and clean raw material streams is the reason why used textiles most often are not recycled at the end of their life – yet. Too many different material inputs and a composition of different fiber and material types makes recycling difficult. This is one of the biggest challenges for textile industry in the future: To ensure that garments can be recycled to new textile fibers and that the loop for a real circular flow of textiles is closed.
