Following the opening of its first European-based Arc’type store earlier this month, Arc’teryx has launched its all-new Agrium garment, a lightweight down hoodie that offers maximal performance, but is made with minimal impact on the environment.
The Agrium — which arrives in either “Tatsu” or black — is the brand’s latest step towards transitioning 80% of its products to fair trade certification by 2025, with the hoodie boasting a dope-dyed outer material with fluorine-free water repellency, and a plant-based liner made from 60% castor bean oil.
Despite its 365g build, the Agrium’s RDS-certified 850 fill goose down insulation sees it do the business as both a standalone garment as well as a midlayer, while an insulated hood provides additional warmth in more challenging conditions.
Arc’teryx’s Agrium down hoodie is available to buy now from the brand’s online webstore, retailing at $400 USD.
In other outerwear news, ARKET has launched its winter-ready Nordic outdoors collection.
