Texapore Ecosphere is the world’s first 100% recycled* jacket and coat range by Jack Wolfskin and part of the Texapore range. Each Texapore Ecosphere jacket is made using a 100% recycled outer material, 100% recycled liner and, most significantly, a 100% recycled membrane.
The revolutionary new approach from Jack Wolfskin conserves raw materials and reduces C02 emissions during the production process. The outer fabric and lining of the jackets are produced in an upcycling process from post-consumer PET bottles helping to combat the environmental impact of single use plastics. As an example, each Men’s Sierra Trail jacket is recycled using the equivalent of 19 one litre sized PET bottles (size L) and 20 bottles for the Women’s Monterey coat (size M).
While many manufacturers are able to boast recycled jacket outers, the Texapore Ecosphere range by Jack Wolfskin is unique in employing 100% recycled* materials throughout the garments. For the first time, the brand has succeeded in manufacturing a membrane in an environmentally friendly way by using recycled post-production remnants and is also completely PFC – free. Outdoor enthusiasts will not have to compromise on their expectations of this product. The Texapore Ecosphere membrane is highly technical. Windproof and waterproof to 20,000mm, it also features a breathability rating of 15,000 g/m2/24h.
