Mountain Khakis Launches PVC-Free Rainwear

Mountain Khakis entered a trending rainwear category with an eco-option for those who care about their impact. New for Fall/Winter 2018, the Rainmaker Jacket series is fully waterproof, warm and supple to keep both men and women dry even on the gnarliest days – and does it without PVC.
Built with welded seams, Rainmaker jackets utilize a naturally soft and flexible PU (polyurethane) that is a green alternative to PVC in both production and after-care. PU doesn’t require solvents for softening in the manufacturing process and is also designed to deteriorate after a period of use, where PVC never degrades.

“We’ve taken the Rainmaker Jacket to task in every possible weather scenario. Downpour on the river, wet snow in early fall, mud season in the spring and it performs beautifully no matter the conditions,” said Noah Robertson, co-founder of Mountain Khakis and director of product development. “We built a jacket that not only handles the elements with ease and style but does it in an environmentally friendly way.”
