We recommend washing at 30°C with a gentle non-detergent / Drip-dry only / Do not use fabric conditioner, bleach or dry-clean / Reproof when needed

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.

Top notch piece of kit

Pricey but worth every penny.

When you spend a lot of time outdoors in bad weather you need decent waterproofing. This coat hits the mark. Thank you.

Dry and Warm - perfect for UK winters!

This arrived a few weeks ago just in time for the rain, it’s made the walks for my commute significantly drier! It’s quite warm so in autumn can be easily worn just just a T-shirt or shirt and I expect it will be more than comfortable on colder days with just one extra layer. The inside pocket is huge, the inside of the outer pockets have a nice soft lining and water proof seals on the zips as you would expect. You can fold the hood in if you just want a collar vs the hood out all the time which I didn’t realise until I got it.

It looks good, plenty of questions on where I’ve got this from, expecting to see a few more popping up! Great quality and good finishing, very happy with it!

Great looking jacket, big size

It's a great looking jacket and looks as displayed but quite a large fit. Very warm considering the thickness too.
