2. Material & Sustainability:

  • The back parts are made of a mesh fabric that consists of a blend of merino wool and polyester. Merino is a renewable fabric that comes with a natural antibacterial finishing. It even neutralizes odour without any chemical additives, regulates body temperature and transports humidity to the outside of the fabric.
  • Our vest represents top performance and ecological thinking. Front part, shoulder, chest and access slots are made from an extremely light three-layer-laminate (approx. 88g/m2). It's not only 100% water- and windproof, it also features high breathability. This functional fabric resists a water column of 20,000 mm, has a water vapour permeability of <10m2PA/W and an abrasion resistance of more than 60,000 cycles. The fabric is bluesign® certified and goes through a production chain on the highest ecological and quality level. Because of the use of DWR Bionic Finish® Eco, our vest is free from fluorocarbon.
  • The collar inlay is made of very thin and light polyester and elastane. This fabric is bluesign® certified and comes packed with features such as Sanitized®-finishing (an antibacterial and odour-neutralizing feature) and Interpower®-finishing (keeps you cool and dry).
  • Our zippers are produced by YKK from recycled PET.
  • The assembly is carried in Portugal. This way we can keep transport routes short and guarantee that the manufacturer and the assembler adhere to all EU work and safety regulations.
  • At least 50% of the energy used for production in Portugal is generated from renewable resources.
  • Packaging, storage, shipping and quality control are carried out directly by the Edelstoff Design Team at the Lightweight headquarter in Friedrichshafen/Germany.
