Neyland Padded Jacket – Climate protection with recycled end-of-life tires

Climate protection to wear

By using recycled materials in the textile production process, climate-damaging CO2 emissions can be reduced by up to 60%. This also conserves fossil resources. Even used car tires can provide the basic materials for polyamide through an innovative process. With the Neyland Padded Jacket, VAUDE demonstrates that a very stylish and warm outdoor jacket can be created from this process. A fashion statement for the Future Generation.

VAUDE has long since decided to take a stand for the planet – when it comes to protecting the environment, the company doesn't see any alternative. This is why the Upper Swabian company does everything in its power to reduce resource consumption and primarily uses recycled or renewable raw materials for its products. According to its own ambitious "Brand Material Goals", 90% of its products will be made primarily from such sustainable materials by 2024. The company focuses on new, innovative processes and environmentally friendly material developments.

Neyland Padded Jacket – completely recycled
This winter jacket was produced with maximum climate friendliness: For the recycled polyamide main material, pyrolysis oil is obtained from end-of-life tires in a thermo-chemical process, which is fed into conventional polyamide production. This reduces CO2 emissions by up to 60%. The inner lining is also made from recycled polyamide, and PrimaLoft® insulation made from recycled PET bottles ensures exceptional insulation. 

The Neyland Padded Jacket is a cool all-rounder for autumn and winter. With its casual, contemporary design, it’s perfect for a day in the city or a weekend in the mountains. Thanks to the Ceplex membrane, it’s breathable, windproof and waterproof as well so it can stand up to rain or snow. The abrasion-resistant ripstop and casual cut ensure cool good look. The hood with a high collar offers reliable protection from wind and cold temperatures, the cuffs can be closed tightly or left open, depending on the weather. There’s room for a hat or valuables in the two lined zip pockets and there’s also an inner pocket. You can adjust the bottom hem from inside the pockets.

Neyland Padded Halfzip Jacket – a youthful environmentalist
VAUDE also has a chic piece in its range for the next outdoor generation – a stylish unisex winter anorak! The Neyland Padded Halfzip Jacket impresses in three ways: with cool looks, sophisticated features, and extremely sustainable production. A fashionable understatement on climate protection and gender justice, if you will.

A side zip ensures easy on and off, you’ll find a place for your phone, gloves or cold hands in the two kangaroo pockets. An adjustable hood with a high collar offers protection for storms, rain or snow. The best feature of all – the hood can be tightened with just one hand. Functionality meets work wear style in this casual winter anorak – casual and contemporary, it’s also breathable as well as waterproof and windproof. The anorak is unbeatable in terms of sustainability – the primary recycled polyamide was made with a certified mass balance process in which pyrolysis oil is extracted from used tires and fed into a conventional polyamide production process. Chemical recycling reduces CO2 emissions by up to 60%. The inner lining is made from recycled polyamide and PrimaLoft® fill made from recycled PET bottles ensures exceptional insulation. 

Climate neutral production
The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally friendly, functional products made from sustainable, bluesign®-certified materials. 90% of the VAUDE Collection is certified by the government textile seal Grüner Knopf (Green Button). In 2022, the VAUDE company and all its products became completely climate neutral. The emissions arising from materials, manufacturing, and shipping are analyzed and systematically reduced. Emissions that are currently unavoidable were fully offset by the independent non-profit organization myclimate. Additional information: vau.de/klimaneutral
