Those of you who are looking for an eco-friendly product will be pleased with the fact that the jacket uses a portion of recycled polyester, helping the environment little by little. The fabric might be durable and robust, but it is also super lightweight, allowing you to be protected without feeling the burden of a heavy coat.
