Product Description
Sporty feelgood vest with natural insulation made from kapok
  • optimized for wearing layers
  • warm, breathable, water resistant
  • eco-friendly production
Natural warmth with kapok plant-based down. This urban style vest serves as a versatile thermal layer for outdoor and leisure activities in cold weather. It’s cut longer at the back to provide full protection for the sensitive kidney area and seat. It’s padded with the innovative fiber PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Natural Blend. This material is made from a blend of kapok fibers and polyester, of which two-thirds comes from recycled PET bottles. Kapok is a fluffy, fine plant fiber that resembles a cotton bloom and provides natural warmth, which is why it is also known as plant down. Blended with polyester, this insulation material offers excellent moisture management, dries quickly and is exceptionally durable. We use our Durable Organic Cotton for the upper half of the exterior shell. This is a tightly woven, particularly robust and highly breathable cotton fabric made of GOTS-certified organic cotton. When it gets wet, the fabric swells slightly and forms a natural barrier to rain. At the lower part of the vest, a lightweight and durable recycled polyamide fabric provides protection from wind and moisture. It is obtained from material remnants of the textile production process. Side stretch inserts ensure excellent freedom of movement and an optimal fit. The 2-way zips are made of a biobased plastic that’s made with 70 % castor oil to conserve resources. The vest pairs well with the other products of the VAUDE Green Shape Core Collection. #ecofair #multiuse #unique

EcoPaxx

EcoPaXX is a bio-based plastic. Normally, plastics are made from petroleum. In order to save this finite fossil resource, we have been looking for an alternative made from a renewable raw material. 70% of EcoPaXX is made from castor oil. The hardy castor oil plant, also known as palm of Christ, grows without additional irrigation on barren soil that would be unsuitable for growing food. We use the oil, which is pressed from the plant’s beans, to make robust polyamide fibres for our clothing as well as for making recyclable zip fasteners, buttons and hooks. Find outmore about EcoPaXX.

Primaloft-Silver-Ins-Natural-Blend

In this product we use a new type of PrimaLoft® insulation with plant based down. The large fruits of the kapok tree contain fluffy, lightweight and silky fibers that look like cotton wool. These biobased fibers provide excellent heat storage and moisture management. PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Natural Blend is made of 30 % kapok and 70 % PrimaLoft® ultra fine fibers of which two thirds come from post-consumer recycled PET bottles to conserve fossil resources. It keeps you warm, dries quickly, is easy to care for, long-lasting and preserves our planet’s limited resources. More information about PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Natural Blend.
