FLUOROCARBON-FREE - WE PROMISED. WE DELIVERED.

For the majority of waterproof clothing, water repellency is achieved by treating fabrics with fluorocarbon-based Durable Water Repellents (DWRs). However, the fluorocarbons they contain leach slowly from the fabrics and enter the water system. Over time they bioaccumulate in the environment and into the food chain, with the potential to disrupt the immune system and fertility of both wildlife and human beings.

Traditional DWRs are made up of C6 or C8 long-chain chemicals. We had been using C6 for the past five years, which is comparatively better than C8 due to its ability to break down over time, making it slower to bioaccumulate. As a business we are by no means perfect, nor do we have all the answers, but in the face of an ever changing landscape, we always seek and commit to the best and most sustainable way of making our product. Last year we announced our commitment as a business towards eliminating fluorocarbons from our waterproof range by the end of 2017. We believed it was attainable and we're proud to have made it a reality.

Perfect mid weight waterproof jacket

Totally waterproof, warm but light and a generous fit to allow you to build up layers underneath. The perfect combination.

First Finisterre experience: approved

Bought this jacket for both autumn rainy days and first low temperatures, and which could suit for getting to work and long surfing week-ends. The overall contract is mainly fulfilled with very satisfying results, sizing could fit tighter for a M though.

Spot on

Was recommended to Finisterre by a friend and it was spot on.

Incredibly happy with this jacket.

Super light, warm and with variable weather, plus heading into winter, exactly what I needed.

Plus, far more aware of being socially conscious of what I am buying, and this ticks that box as well.
