down-filled hooded gilet.
the front is made from smart flannel, a wool flannel fabric that has been treated to make it water-repellent.
the down padding ensures natural thermoregulation.
the back and lining are made of japanese nylon, a fabric that repels both water and dust.
the outer smart flannel fabric is 100% zq-certified new zealand merino wool.
this means that this wool is made of the highest quality fibres and is fully traceable right to the source of the supply chain.
it makes sure that the animals are respected, for example by following a mulesing-free process and allowing the sheep to live in wide open spaces.
the manufacturing processes are also environmentally sustainable: each source farm follows a specific environmental impact management plan.
work on the farms is ethically managed, ensuring the well-being of workers and the community as well as a safe working environment.
