TEIJIN RECYCLED POLYESTER
The recycled polyester fabric was developed in partnership with Teijin, the fabric supplier behind ECOCIRCLE® technology, which produces fabric from a blend of post-consumer and post-industrial polyester waste.
According to Teijin, ęCollected polyester products are disintegrated to the molecular level, and then recycled into fibers of the same quality as ones made of oil. Because of this processing, we can avoid degrading quality which has been an issue of conventional recycling technology based on physical processing. In addition, because our technology allows us to use the same material as many times as we want, this reduces the consumption of oil resources and waste materials. Moreover, compared to manufacturing raw polyester materials from oil, it is possible to reduce both energy consumption and CO2 emission by about 80%."
As a result of this proprietary process, at the end of its long life, the Synfill Sweater can be returned to us and recycled into polyester fibers for reuse.
COCONA® Insulation uses the activated carbon derived from the industrial waste of coconut husks. By blending COCONA® with recycled polyester, we are able to increase the surface area of the insulation allowing it to dry faster and resist odors. And carbon, being dark in color, is able to absorb more heat. In the end, the Synfill Sweater retains heat, dries faster, resists odors and provides a higher warmth-to-weight ratio than other synthetic insulations—and it's created from a recycled resource.
If one of our products fails to satisfy you at the time you receive it, or does not perform to expectations during its long lifetime, simply return it to us. We'll replace it or extend a refund.
Because we build sustainability into everything we make, our products are designed to have a long lifespan, longer sometimes than their usefulness to a single person.

Hand it down, pass it on, give it away: we'll warranty a product until normal wear and tear run their course. Please understand that we can not guarantee products employed for purposes other than their intended use, and that even under the best circumstances, we do expect they'll wear out before you do.
