The Bird Mountain Jacket is a waterproof yet breathable shell and the partly recycled synthetic down work in combination to keep you toasty and comfortably dry on the slopes.
There's plenty of design features in the Bird Mountain that'll keep the cold and snow out. A rarely seen, but highly appreciated, feature is the comfort cuff with thumbhole to keep your wrists warm; an expected powder skirt and adjustable hood, plus a removable fur hood trim so you can change according to your style.
This jacket doesn't look like a classic ski jacket - the ski features such as the ski pass pocket are subtle, so you'll not be out of place on a walk or a trip to the pub.
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 Columbia Women's Bird Mountain Insulated Jacket - Black has the following sustainability attributes...
Sourcing down or synthetic insulation from post-consumer products makes a very easy solution to the ethical question around virgin down and stops synthetic fibres (aka plastic) from entering landfill. Don’t worry about where it’s been – all recycled down and synthetic insulation is cleaned before being reused in a new product! Buying recycled insulation helps reduce the environmental impact of a new product.
