Recycled nylon comes from used fishing nets, post‐industrial waste fiber and yarn collected from spinning and processed into reusable nylon fiber. The benefits of recycling nylon come from the reduced energy needed to produce the final fiber, reduced dependence on oil, and the diversion of waste from landfills. We consider it recycled when the fabric consists of 50% or more of recycled raw materials.
Washing your GORE-TEX® and dri products will prolong the life of the product. This is how you should wash GORE-TEX® and dri products:
Remember to close all zippers and Velcro. The garment should be washed at 40 degrees, with a mild detergent and no softening or rinsing agents. Do not use bleach. Softeners, rinsing agents and bleaches can damage the fabric’s water-resistant properties (not the membrane/waterproofing) and the color of the fabric. Rinse the garment twice, if possible. Use water repellent spray on the outside of the garment after washing for optimal water-resistance (this has nothing to do with the waterproof quality of the garment, but makes it easier for water to roll off the outer fabric). Dry the garment on a low setting in the dryer, if you like, or iron it at a low temperature. Warmth helps to reactivate the waterproofing. The garment must be dry before washing and before being put away.

Amazing!Bought this after moving to England for general use in the rainy climate here. Worn around town, cycling, and camping. Tested extensively in torrential rain and even wet snowfall, 100% waterproof as promised. Moisture does not get through this. Highly windproof as well, did not feel much piercing cold while in windy conditions. Under arm zips provide excellent ventilation options when wearing layers underneath. In terms of quality of manufacture and performance this jacket is right up there with Arc'Teryx, Patagonia, and top of the line North Face (gear I've owned or tested in the past). This item has more of a loose-fitting and casual look, which I prefer. I am 6'2" 200 lbs and the XL has a slightly baggy (and very stylish) fit on me. No real complaints with this item but worth noting there is only one internal chest pocket (2 would have been nicer) and the 4 exterior pockets (which are a good size and good location on the garment) only velcro shut (as opposed to zip) which isn't much of a problem for casual use but I could see this having issues for activities with lots of motion such as skiing or mountaineering. Overall this is an amazing piece and I'm excited to have many adventures wearing it in the years to come.

Good jacketFirst opinion after my purchase (jacket wear 2 times):
After ordering a size L, I exchange for a size xl. Indeed, within the framework of a use all the year, the size xl allows to have several layers below without being tighten (1.89m for 92kg).
I bought this jacket because it is long enough and protects well the basin of the wind (and rain), I also liked the color gray storm (cyclone eye).
The 4 pockets are accessible with my backpack.
The velcros at the ends of the sleeves allow either to completely cover the hand or to stop at the wrist (the length of the sleeves takes into account).
Good illustration of the product on the site (photo + video).

Nice go for all jacketI bought it 3 weeks ago. It was tested in heavy rain and i was completely dry underneath. Really breathable - you barely notice that waterproof jacket is on you. I've got L size, which looks good when put on a pullover or thin down jacket. Also fits well over Trollveggen Down (a heavy one) of M size. Reasonable packable.
Velcro could be done better - hooks are located on face of the jacket, thus catch sweaters of people around you))
Overall very nice jacket suitable for various activities (skiing, hiking, travel, ...)

The size xxl can it suitable for a man of 2m05?
Asked by: Cédric
Thanks for your question regarding size. The centre back length of the jacket in XXL is 91 cm, and the arm length from shoulder (not neck) is 80 cm. So it has quite long arms and a long fit. The chest size in XXL is 138 cm (in L it is 126 cm). So I think XXL will fit you well.
