100% PFC-free

Label for water-repellent coating without PFC

One of our top aims is to eliminate PFCs in our collection.

PFCs (per- and poly-fluoride chemicals) are substances used on the surfaces of items to give them water-repellent or fat-repellent properties, which is the reason they are used in waterproof trousers and jackets.

As it is still not clear which PFCs are "good" (i.e. degradable) and which ones are not, we took the decision to eliminate them all from our entire collection. We are now very close to attaining our goal: all our clothing and equipment – bar a few of our sleeping bags – are now completely PFC-free. And the number of PFC-free shoes in our collection is on the rise.
You can read more about this on our PFC Info page.
