Men’s Manukau Padded Jacket: Natural and sustainable urban style

Isolationsjacke mit Hanf und Rec. Polyester

Effortlessly cool city styling paired with environmental integrity – that’s the VAUDE Manukau Padded Jacket. There’s a huge amount of ecological spirit in this classic trucker jacket. A blend of hemp and recycled polyester was used in the outer material while recycled polyester from used bottles was included in the insulation. In addition, the jacket’s classic design and polished wax finish are sure to draw attention.

Even urban cowboys need protection from the cold – the Manukau is a perfect sidekick for the boomtown bustle that will keep you reliably warm. Whether you’re on your way to the office or out for an after-work beer with your friends, VAUDE’s Men's Manukau Padded Jacket not only looks casual – it also features an extremely comfortable Sherpa fleece collar and sustainable manufacturing. 

Hemp and heat to warm men’s hearts

55 % hemp fibers and 45 % recycled polyester – the Men's Manukau Padded Jacket plays in the premier league when it comes to sustainable production. Hemp is a hardy crop that requires very little water. In addition, no pesticides are needed, and that’s great for having a clean eco-conscience. The use of recycled polyester reduces the consumption of newly produced plastic for a smaller ecological footprint and CO2 balance.

A clever mix of materials offers excellent thermal performance in the cold weather of transitional seasons, paired with solid weather protection. And, as is often the case, its genius lies in the detail: The Men's Manukau Padded Jacket is waxed on the outside, which provides good wind and weather protection, ensuring that light rain will pearl right up while giving the jacket a unique, polished look.

Breaking new ground in urban spaces

VAUDE combines technical inner materials and very eco-friendly raw materials with impressively stylish, classic good looks that feel unexpectedly soft to the touch. VAUDE is also breaking new ground when it comes to weather protection. With a water resistant wax coating, the jacket will sport a charming used look once you’ve worn it a while. Two chest pockets with flaps, two handwarmer pockets and an inner pocket keep everything important close at hand and bring order to your modern lifestyle.  With its clean-cut, urban styling, the Men's Manukau Padded Jacket is the perfect understatement for your next urban adventure.

Environmentally friendly manufacturing

In addition to being made from the renewable raw material hemp and recycled polyester, the Men's Manukau Padded Jacket also features the VAUDE Green Shape label. This stands for environmentally friendly, functional products made from sustainable, bluesign® certified materials.
