One of the best responsibly sourced down jackets you can buy.
Cutting edge Diamond Lite is a lightweight 20 Denier nylon fabric with ‘liquid crystal’ yarns woven into the face, making it extremely resistant to abrasion and tearing. Combined with 350g (M) of high quality 850+ fill power goose down inside core body box walled chambers, the durability and the warmth to weight ratio of the Alpine 850 Down Jacket makes it perfect for high altitude mountaineering.
Montane is proud to announce that all its down insulated jackets & garments will be produced using Allied’s HyperDRY™ water resistant down. In the name of transparency, Montane will also become the first brand in the world to commit to the RDS across its entire clothing range. Allied’s Trackmydown service will be implemented through hang tags on products. Each tag will not only explain the technology in the product, but will also feature a unique SourceTRACK lot number. This combination of RDS certified down, SourceTRACK & trackmydown, new HyperDRY™ down technology and Allied swing tickets make Montane’s down garments the most informative and transparent line of down clothing to date.
We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it. We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Montane Men's Alpine 850 Jacket - Orange has the following sustainability attributes...
Sometimes using animal products can be a more sustainable alternative than using non-biodegradable plastic, but it is imperative that an animal’s welfare is respected. The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) was started by The North Face, Textile Exchange, Allied Feather Down and Control Union. RDS down cannot come from farms that engage in force feeding or live plucking and they must respect the Five Freedoms of animal welfare: freedom from hunger and thirst; from discomfort; from pain, injury or disease; to express normal behaviour; and from fear and distress. Parent farm (the farm where the birds are kept for producing eggs) certification is optional unless the down is harvested there. RDS down is traceable back to source via Track My Down.Find out more about RDS here: https://textileexchange.org/standards/responsible-down/.
