      About The Amundsen Sports White Eagle Jacket 🦅

      About The Amundsen Sports White Eagle Jacket 🦅

      "Amundsen’s flight history is somewhat of a hidden gem—often overshadowed by his polar feats. But in truth, Amundsen showed great interest in aviation early on. Seeing the potential for a new era of adventure, he wrote “And now – suddenly all in one go – it will all maybe be changed. Cold and darkness will be exchanged for light and warmth, the long, laborious wanderings for a quick flight…In truth – the possibilities are great”.

      In the legacy of Amundsen we introduce a true Throwback Piece. Created in the image of a aviation legacy, the White Eagle jacket takes inspiration from the past while using innovated materials such as waxed cotton from Hailey Stevenson, Scotland and Wool fleece from Pontetorto, Italy."

      An Overview of CAPiTA's Wood Core

      An Overview of CAPiTA's Wood Core

      A snowboard's wood core is the heart and soul of the riding experience.

      This essential element determines the key character traits of a snowboard and functions as a primary building block for everything else that goes into a board. Every CAPiTA deck starts off with a specialized wood core allowing for uniform flex, greater turning control, and incredibly fast response. Different species of wood, along with custom core profiles, help give each deck a unique feel and targeted flex. CAPiTA have engineered a series of wood core compositions, each with distinctive characteristics, to ensure that they have your ideal snowboard.

      Yuki Threads Materials

      Bluesign:

      • BLUESIGN represents the vision and mindset of responsible and sustainable manufacturing of textile consumer products. When Yuki choose to use a synthetic fabric for their technical outerwear, they choose to use BLUESIGN approved fabrics. Yuki do this because while they realise that all synthetic technical fabrics come at a social and environmental cost, they can significantly reduce that. If they're producing their fabrics ina a way that excludes the most toxic chemicals, limits the use of chemicals and monitors the waste, they believe they're taking the most effective steps to limit their impact of these fabrics. 

      Organic Cotton:

      • For the plethora of reasons, the only cotton they use and have used for the past 6 years is Organic. The social and economic returns are staggering. The environmental advantages such as the huge reduction in water consumption are enormous but another thing they find really cool is the carbon sequestered by organic soils as posed to conventional and reduction in fossil fuels from not using synthetic fertilizers. These things go a long way towards Yuki's net 0 emissions as a global community. 
      • The organic cotton they choose to procure and that you ill find is Fairtrade but also GOTS certified organic cotton the world textile processing standard for organic fibres. 

      PFC Free DWR:

      • C8 and C6 water repellents contain dangerous fluorocarbons which are made of carbon and fluorine atoms. Although these chemicals help repel water and oil from fabrics, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined them to be highly toxic to humans.
      • C0-DWR on the other hand is a non-fluorinated water repellent that helps keep you dry without the nasty chemicals. It has been a non negotiable for Yuki for years. 
      • Taking it a step further Yuki's Zealan R3 DWR is also 63% renewably sourced and also fully complies with OEKO-TEX®, Standard 100 requirements. 

      YKK Zips:

      • There is nothing worse than a failed zip & potentially dangerous depending on your whereabouts when it happens. Even worse if it's not repaired, all the time, energy and resources that has gone into creating a garment is laid to waste with a single slip of a tooth. 
      • It's for this reason, Yuki choose to only partner with YKK.

      Recycled Nylon:

      • By partnering with Greenlon Yuki are able to employ their innovative recycling technology, increasing the usage of reclaimed materials from pre-consumer textile waste, minimizing the resource consumption & environmental impact.
      • In choosing Recycled Nylon Yuki have seen an 8.5% reduction in power consumption, 100% reduction in heavily oiled energy consumption, an 84% reduction in water consumption and a massive 77% reduction in CO2 emissions in the fabric production. 

      Recycled PET:

      • Recycled polyester gives a second life to a material that's not biodegradable and would otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. According to the NGO Ocean Conservancy, 8 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean every year, on top of the estimated 150 million metric tons that currently circulate in marine environments. If we keep this pace, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. 
      • Yuki believe that any place they can, they need to use recycled materials, so they do. That is why they use 100% recycled fabrics for all of their synthetic fabrics along with a number of their trims and labels.
