Ahead of the February’s on-line ISPO event, Rab have announced that they have won one of the prestigious awards with their AW 21 Arc Eco Jacket.
New for the 2021 season and retailing at £155 / 250 Euro, Rab’s Arc Eco Jacket is their first product to utilise the 3-layer Pertex® Shield Revolve fabric.
Rab describe the Arc Eco 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.”
Equip, who own Rab as well as Lowe Alpine, are delighted with the award as Debbie Read, Rab’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.”
