Filled with 100% recycled down and using 100% recycled fabrics this is the perfect layer for keeping the cold at bay.
With a lighter environmental footprint than other insulated jackets, the Earthrise is both warm and responsible. Its filling comes entirely from reclaimed duck and goose down whilst both its outer shell and inner linings are 100% recycled. The only thing that remains the same is our proven design and construction.

In Europe alone over 7.5 million tons of textile waste is generated each year; whilst down and feathers are only a fraction of this total amount it still represents a large quantity of material sent to landfill. As part of our commitment to developing a more sustainable supply chain Mountain Equipment is introducing Down Cycle™. Starting with the Earthrise Jacket, filled with 100% recycled down and using 100% recycled outer and lining fabrics. Our ultimate aim is to develop a fully closed loop recycling system for down clothing and equipment and to eliminate the need for unwanted products, or those at the end of their useable life, being sent to landfill.
We have already begun this process, with successful trials completed here in the UK using recycled down from unrepairable warranty products and we will trial this in Germany on a commercial scale in 2019. This will involve collecting and processing many more unwanted items of outdoor clothing and equipment.
