We’d like to invite you to join our virtual press meeting at ISPO Munich Online 2021 on February 5, 2021, 12.30-13.00, to learn more about the Arc Eco Jacket as well as about Equip’s sustainability strategy.

Closing the loop – Rab’s Arc Eco Jacket

Building on our long-standing partnership with Pertex®, we are delighted to introduce the Arc Eco as the first product to use 3-layer Pertex® Shield Revolve fabric. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester, Pertex® Shield Revolve is made from a polyester face, polyester membrane and polyester backer. This monopolymer, or single type of material, not only has a reduced impact during production but it also paves the way to be recycled again at the end of its life. The fabric is super soft to the touch, quiet when in use, lightweight and very comfortable to wear. It has a 20m HH and a 15,000 MVTR with a fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment, further enhancing its sustainability appeal.

Debbie Read, Equip’s CSR manager, explains: “We are delighted that the Arc Eco Jacket is among the ISPO Award 2021 winners. Not only is this a great recognition for Rab, but it is also proof that there is no longer a need to choose between technical attributes and sustainable performance.
