Halti wins the Sustainability Award. The Reissu W DX 3L Jacket is a stylish long-cut women’s shell made from a PFC-free waterproof, breathable three-layer polyester laminate with recycled content, which can also easily be recycled in true circular style. All additional materials excluding the metal zipper slider are made in polyester, too. The softness of the material, the great fit of the jacket and the high-level of weather protection also impressed the jury: »It kept me dry in this year’s strongest downpour in Stockholm«, said one jury member. The fashionable look makes the Reissu W DX 3L Jacket an attractive and sustainable alternative to a wide range of women that would never buy a classical hard-shell.

INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
Halti are professionals in making outdoor apparel and wanted to take that aspect and took all the best features from outdoor jackets, combined to the needs of urban cycling/commuting.
All the jacket materials such as the outer shell, membrane, inner layer and trims, except for the zipper slider, are 100% polyester. The whole product life cycle has been considered when designing this product. The fabric is made with recycled polyester to use materials that already exist, rather than produce more virgin materials to our planet. The fabric has PFC-free durable water repellency treatment. The product details, such as snap buttons and front opening are designed so that there easier to replace if they break. When this jacket can no longer be worn, the life cycle should not end. That’s why Halti have chosen only materials made of polyester, so that the materials can be recycled and they can stay in the loop and not become waste.
With Think Ahead, the Halti sustainable development programme, they take responsibility for social, environmental and financial footprints.
This jacket is designed by using 3D software and dressed on avatar. Seeing jacket on 3D avatar was easier to know needed measures for example for body widths and sleeve and hem length. To us at Halti, using 3D in our design and product development process means less textile waste, lower emissions and less use of natural resources, as well as a faster and more creative design process.
