AN ARC’TERYX FAVOURITE TRANSFORMED FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Maximum performance, minimal impact. The Agrium hoody was built by thinking beyond the immediate goal of crafting exceptional product, with the impact on people and the planet in mind. Every element of the Agrium has been considered for sustainability with the intention of testing the limits of what we previously knew was possible.
WHY WE MADE THIS
The lightweight packable down Cerium hoody is an Arc’teryx mainstay, having been in the line since 2014. Our brand sustainability commitments developed by our team in North Vancouver broaden how we think about ourselves and the way we approach building new products. With that in mind, our team created the similarly styled Agrium hoody with a dope dyed face fabric, bio-derived liner, Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified down fill and Bluesign® approved synthetic insulation made from 45% recycled polyester, while still providing a solid midlayer or standalone for cold, dry environments.
- Dope dyed face fabric and biopolymer liner are less resource-intense
- Lightweight, compressible and packs down into its own stuff sack
- RDS-certified 850 fill European white goose down provides an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio
Technically advanced, exceptional warmth for its weight, highly packable - the Agrium performs as a midlayer or standalone to provide conscious performance. Warmth comes from a mapped construction using RDS-certified 850 fill European white goose down with 45% recycled synthetic insulation used in those areas prone to moisture. The Arato™ shell - coloured with a dope-dyed process that uses minimal resources - is light and strong, and an insulated hood adds warmth, for extra coziness.
Complete with all the features Arc’teryx users will recognize from the Cerium LT Hoody, like the No Slip Zip™ front zipper, elasticated cuffs to seal out the cold and an adjustable hem drawcord. Two hand pockets, and an internal zippered security pocket with built in stuff sack makes the Agrium pack down to the size of a Nalgene water bottle.
The design intent of the Agrium makes sustainability a priority by using bio-derived materials, dope dyed face fabric, two materials that meet the Bluesign® criteria. Bluesign® ensures the highest degree of safety for the consumer, manufacturing with the lowest possible impact on people and the environment and responsible use of resources. The Agrium uses a RDS down fill, a voluntary global standard that aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to an unnecessary harm.
The Agrium Hoody is available in men’s and women’s styles, in addition to a women’s Anorak version and a men’s Jacket version.
