BAM Bamboo Clothing Rowtor Waterproof Recycled Jacket 4.5

We have had the pleasure of trying out a range of BAM’s Clothing including gym and leisurewear which all combined sustainable materials and a super soft feel, but this outdoor jacket is a whole new level of practical and environmentally friendly. The Rowtor Waterproof Recycled Jacket comes in either Black, the attractive Rust Dawn in the men’s version or Nordic Sky in the women’s and comes in sizes Small up to Extra Extra Large. The first thing you notice is how incredibly lightweight it is, this isn’t a jacket you will have to question whether it is worth packing into your bag or not, the entire thing also packs down into one of the pockets, making it lovely and compact when not in use. This lightweight construction also feels great on, allowing you to layer up comfortably without adding bulk and restricting movements.

This jacket is made from 98% recycled materials with the main structure being 100% recycled polyester (2.5L, 90gsm) and at the end of its life it can be recycled again into something new. Don’t for a second think that this preloved material is in anyway inferior to virgin materials, the Rowtor is 100% waterproof, with a finishing coating of Teflon econ elite to ensure long lasting protection, quite often waterproof coatings can contain PFCs which are damaging for marine life, we love that Bamboo has considered this and made efforts to avoid it. The fully taped seams and waterproof zip keeps out rain, snow and wind, the breathable membrane allows moisture to escape the jacket and keeps you comfortable. The slim cut provides an active fit and flattering profile, it’s worth considering going up a size if you often wear woollen layers, the jacket is fitted with a hood, storm flaps and an inside zip up pocket. For added protection against the elements the hood and hem are both adjustable, the back hem drops down lower than the front to prevent drafts at the back and the adjustable cuffs deliver a precise seal around the wrists. The Rowtor jacket is a no brainer, practical, lightweight and working hard to protect the environment we all enjoy. RRP £129
