FLUOROCARBON-FREE - WE PROMISED. WE DELIVERED.

For the majority of waterproof clothing, water repellency is achieved by treating fabrics with fluorocarbon-based Durable Water Repellents (DWRs). However, the fluorocarbons they contain leach slowly from the fabrics and enter the water system. Over time they bioaccumulate in the environment and into the food chain, with the potential to disrupt the immune system and fertility of both wildlife and human beings.

Traditional DWRs are made up of C6 or C8 long-chain chemicals. We had been using C6 for the past five years, which is comparatively better than C8 due to its ability to break down over time, making it slower to bioaccumulate. As a business we are by no means perfect, nor do we have all the answers, but in the face of an ever changing landscape, we always seek and commit to the best and most sustainable way of making our product. Last year we announced our commitment as a business towards eliminating fluorocarbons from our waterproof range by the end of 2017. We believed it was attainable and we're proud to have made it a reality.

Never let me down!

I've been wearing this jacket every day for more than a month now and absolutely love it! I feel like a turtle fully protected in my shell (also because of the beautiful green colour:) No matter how heavy the rain is or how strong the wind, it keeps me dry and warm, the pockets are big enough to fit even my coffee tumbler without disturbing the shape of the jacket. The design is great and fits perfectly for daily wear, and it's roomy enough to layer more in the winter. I also love that when it's cold I can fasten it inside around the waist for extra protection and still keeping the fit as it is.

Five stars from me, but still few tips for improvement: I find the sleeves quite wide and would put one more button for fastening, the neck is also quite wide and I always have to wear a scarf to protect my neck, would be nice if it could be somehow fastened or at least have a soft lining as the men's version ( I loved mine so much that got the Borealis for my partner).

Overall a fantastic jacket, I really hope it will do this great job for long time to come

Good Quality

Fast service and easy communication with the company both online and in store. The coat is good quality, warm and keeps me dry. I think the fit is meant to be slightly oversized which makes it stylish but still fits where it should ( shoulders, arms ect )

Excellent product

I've had this jacket for about a month and I love it. Lightweight, waterproof, great for layering items under and the 3/4 length style means that you avoid soggy pants from the rain running off your jacket onto your bottoms. Perfect for living and working on the west coast.

Regarding the sizing I ended up sizing down from the measurements I matched on the size chart and I still have room from a puffa jacket and jumper underneath.

I purchased this parka as a present for my daughter.

My daughter was thrilled by both the parka itself and its environmentally friendly origin.

She wanted something ultra waterproof to cycle to work. Not only does it do a very effective job of keeping her dry, she loves the way it looks and wears it for most activities. It does look stylish and the colour is gorgeous.
