With a collection of tools sliding around the truck, our first choice is always the multitool. Same goes with the Better Sweater® when we head out the door. Built of 10-oz polyester with a sweater-knit exterior and a warm fleece interior, this easy-wearing, moisture-wicking, bulk-free pullover is dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Details include a stand-up collar with a zipper garage for next-to-skin softness, raglan sleeves for unlimited mobility and back seams that create a classic silhouette. Micropolyester jersey trim at the collar, cuffs and hem wick sweat, and a vertical chest pocket closes with a zipper to secure keys and cash. Fabric is bluesign® approved.
bluesign® Approved Fabric
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.
In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.
Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
