Showers Pass Pushes Forward Sustainability Goals With Launch of “Ecolyte Elite” Jacket

Portland, OR – Showers Pass today introduces its EcoLyte Elite Jacket: the most eco-friendly jacket to date by the 25-year cycling outerwear veteran. The high-performance jacket features 100% recycled polyester face and lining fabrics, along with 100% recycled vent and pocket zippers. The polypropylene waterproof-breathable membrane uses low-temperature production and solvent-free lamination, further reducing the environmental impact of the manufacturing process.

“We set out to create an eco-friendly cycling jacket unlike any other in the marketplace, and I’m extremely proud of how the team came together and did just that,” says Jeremy Rider, PR Director of Showers Pass. “It’s turned out to be a surprisingly versatile piece, standing up to the abuse of multi-day adventures, but extremely lightweight; and legitimately pushing the boundaries of sustainability.”

It is a premium piece of kit featuring Showers Pass’ tried-and-true cycling fit, a full-zip front, chest pocket, large core vents for temperature regulation, and a removable/adjustable brimmed hood that is helmet compatible. Reflective accents improve low-light visibility, and a back pocket holds essentials or stows the 13.7oz jacket when not in use.
