Urban styling meets technical prowess in the Upslope Jacket. Made of our R1® fleece that’s a blend of 93% polyester (41% recycled) and 7% spandex, this versatile jacket provides excellent stretch, warmth, and durability in a variety of temperatures.
Heading into the Scottish Highlands for a week of overhanging sport routes and hanging-over single malts, the Upslope Jacket blends technical prowess with urban-inspired styling. A versatile, slim-fit zip-up made of our R1® fleece, it can be worn as an outer layer or as a midlayer under a jacket. The 93% polyester (41% recycled) and 7% spandex blend breathes well, wicks away moisture and provides excellent warmth, comfort and stretch. Features include ribbed zip-through stand-up collar, ribbed cuffs and hem, and two zippered, vertical handwarmer pockets. Climbing-rope-inspired pulls on center-front and pocket zippers. Hip length.
In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
