Tretorn Eco Essentials Bio Plant Rain Jacket
A highly innovative and environmentally conscious rain jacket from Tretorn in collaboration with Oi Polloi – super lightweight and cleanly designed, this breaks new ground in sustainable rainwear – protect yourself from the elements with pride!
Now discontinued, we only have a few items remaining.
This rain jacket is created to resemble nature's own ecosystem - the biodegradable Poly Lactic Acid fabric is made from sugar beets and corn plants, and is laminated for waterproofing with a fully degradable polyurethane. The zipper is made from biodegradable polyamide yarn and even the print is made from soybean colouring. The jacket is therefore 100% degradable - once it has reached the end of it's life, it can be returned to the earth.
The jacket may be wiped clean or washed at 30 degrees C - ensure the jacket is always stored clean and dry.
The fabric is waterproof to 10,000mm and is windproof - the water resistant seams are internally stitched, giving a clean outer look. The hood has drawstrings for adjustment which sit neatly inside the collar, and a drawcord at the waist allows for further adjustment and styling. Two large, hidden vertical pockets sit nicely at the front.
Very lightweight - the XL weighing in at under 400g - this raincoat is packable and portable. The fabric has a slightly crinkly texture with a smoother outer and slightly more textured inner face for comfort.
Sizing and tailoring is gender neutral - eg the Large is a Medium/Large for men - to fit approx 40" chest (a comfortable fit with light clothing underneath) - and a generous large or size 14 for women.
We have taken measurements of the Large as follows (laid flat):
- Chest (pit tp pit) 56cm / 22"
- Waist (at hem) 56cm / 22" - the jacket sides are cut straight
- Sleeve (pit to cuff) 56cm / 22"
- Length (nech to hem) 71cm / 28"
