Mineo Coat: insulated with synthetic down made from recycled PET

For comfortably cozy winter commutes

VAUDE's toasty Mineo Coat proves that style and functionality can go hand in hand. It features an innovative HeatSphere Eco insulation that was designed for environmentally conscious urbanites looking for a waterproof option for winter adventures.

Contrary to what Billy Idol once said, it's not always "hot in the city". On the contrary, city weather can be just as cold, wet and drafty – in short, miserable – as you might experience in the mountains. So VAUDE designed the lined, waterproof and versatile Mineo Coat especially for cloudy, gloomy and wet winter weather in the city. It's sure to warm the hearts of fashion-conscious urbanistas – and the rest of their bodies as well.

Heat pellets inside!

The innovative HeatSphere Eco is used for the fill – a newly developed synthetic down that dries twice as fast as conventional down. Like the outer shell of the Mineo Coat, HeatSphere Eco is made from recycled polyester and absorbs 30 % less moisture than down.

The secret of its high heat retention lies in the coat's design.HeatSphere Eco consists of puffy "heat pellets" made from 100 % recycled PET bottles and includes no animal products. It can, however, be compared with conventional down – it is lightweight, extremely elastic and warmer than any padded fill. In addition, it still provides insulation even when wet and doesn't clump together.

Whether you're waiting for the train on a cold platform, whizzing to work on your e-scooter or out on a stroll, the Mineo Coat will keep you comfortably warm!

Perfect for your bike commute

To help bike commuters get to work in comfort, the coat features side zips and a two-way front zip so you can also open the coat from the bottom. This provides both greater freedom of movement and convenient ventilation if the sun does peek out from behind the clouds. Reflective elements provide more visibility in the low light conditions of morning and evening commutes. Longer styling also keeps your back and bottom warm, while the adjustable hood blocks any cold drafts. For protection from the rain or snow, VAUDE relies on its proven Ceplex Active membrane, which reliably repels moisture and keeps you dry and comfortable throughout the day.

High style factor

The Mineo Coat is impressive not only with its elegant lines and understated quilting. This comfortable companion shows that functionality and elegance are not mutually exclusive. Whether you're attending a business meeting in style or meeting friends for an after-work drink at the bar – the Mineo's got it covered. It also blends seamlessly with evening wear when the need arises. The waterproof Mineo Coat will be available in stores in men's and women's versions this coming fall.
