Description:

The Antarctic Protector Parka is the world's first expedition-grade parka developed from recycled and recyclable materials to withstand the harshest conditions on earth. The outer shell is made from 27 post-consumer plastic bottles and finished with a Fluorine-free water repellant. The 3-ply fabric achieves the highest waterproof rating of 20,000hh, while the 800-fill 95/5 sustainably-sourced goose down provides insulation to minus 25ºC.

Recycled and sustainable fabrics can be found in every detail. The inner storm cuffs are made from Merino wool; pocket linings and chinguard are a recycled polyester/wool blend; and all of the labels, stitching and webbing are made from recycled polyester.

The Protector is designed in Britain, made in Italy, and developed in partnership with Blue Marine Foundation to support the designation of marine protected areas (MPAs) across four million square kilometres of Antarctica’s waters. The Protector will be worn by field teams operating in the region, with a limited run of only 100 parkas for sale.
