The clothing industry has become infatuated with the utilization of sustainable products, and for good reason. But, perhaps the biggest market for recycled material use — outerwear — has taken drastic strides to become one of the leading genres in terms of sustainability. Now, one of the industry’s largest names has revealed its foray into the future of responsible manufacturing, calling upon unused materials and restored byproducts to create the sleek Alpha Pullover.
If you’ve been waiting for British Columbia’s outerwear juggernaut, Arc’teryx, to join the fray, your wishes have finally been answered. After considering the impact of revitalization and reuse, the company has revealed its all-new Alpha Pullover — a technical outdoor garment crafted from fabrics and materials leftover from its previous collections. A 40-denier GORE-TEX waterproof membrane, adjustable StormHood, and breathable construction give the Alpha Pullover a substantial leg to stand on when compared to the genre’s top competitors, making it a viable alternative that holds true to Arc’teryx’s high-strung standards. Head to the company’s website to procure your own Alpha Pullover, which is available in six different color options, for $499.
