Description

Alpine Downlab is an experiment in exploring the possibilities of nature’s lightest, most packable insulation. The 800-fill-power AlpLight Down Pullover uses NetPlus®, a 100% postconsumer recycled nylon fabric made from recycled fishing nets to help reduce ocean plastic pollution, and was designed for cool-weather missions when you need a featherlight insulating layer that packs down small and still keeps you warm. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

  • Ultralightweight, packable NetPlus® 100% postconsumer recycled nylon ripstop made from recycled fishing nets to help reduce ocean plastic pollution; with a PFC-free DWR finish (durable water repellent coating that does not contain perfluorinated chemicals)
  • 800-fill-power Advanced Global Traceable Down (goose down certified by NSF International to help ensure the birds that supply it are not force-fed or live-plucked)
  • Varied quilting stabilizes goose down; overstuffed collar retains warmth; narrow channels provide shape and reduce bulk for enhanced mobility at elbows and shoulders; maintains loft and reduces drafts
  • Center-front quarter-zip has wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Pullover self-stuffs into zippered exterior chest pocket, which has a carabiner clip-in loop

NetPlus® Recycled Fishing Nets

NetPlus® material is made from 100% recycled discarded fishing nets collected in fishing communities in South America.

Why?

The world’s oceans are choking in plastic. Globally, 8.8 million tons of mismanaged plastic enter oceans every year, most of it single-use. Discarded, derelict fishing nets in the marine environment are one of the most harmful forms of plastic pollution—scientists estimate more than 650,000 marine animals are killed or seriously injured every year after being trapped in fishing gear.

Old, frayed and torn fishing nets are discarded partly because of a lack of end-of-life solutions. Bureo®, a company based in California, is trying to fix this and to provide a responsible alternative to virgin plastics by working directly with fishing communities in South America. Through their program, nets are sorted, cleaned and shredded in Chile and then recycled into NetPlus®, a 100% fully traceable postconsumer material. This program keeps hundreds of tons of discarded nets out of the ocean each year and provides supplemental income to coastal communities.

Where We Are

For the past five years, Patagonia has supported Bureo’s development of NetPlus through Tin Shed Ventures®, Patagonia’s venture capital fund. Today, NetPlus is used in a range of products from Patagonia’s hat brims and jackets to Costa sunglasses and Futures surf fins—even Jenga games.

By turning fishing nets into hat brims and fabric, we have helped keep more than 149 metric tons of waste plastic out of the world’s oceans. While hat brims were fairly straight forward, our material developers had to work closely with our supply-chain partners to figure out a way to chemically transform the plastic in the fishing nets into a high-quality yarn that can be used in our garments, too. Now we have. This Fall 2021 season, 104 metric tons of nets will be woven into Patagonia clothing.

What’s Next

By developing NetPlus materials with Bureo, we have supported the collection and recycling of more than 400 tons of discarded fishing nets. We will continue to incorporate NetPlus material into more Patagonia products over the next few years.
