Bio Trail

Waterproof and compostable jacket for adventurers

Admiration of the natural environment is an inherent part of adventuring in the wilderness. Despite this, the materials that outdoor products are made from are harmful to Nature. Bio Trail is a hiking jacket designed for function and practicality. It responds to backpackers’ needs and is a green solution for Nature lovers who want to respect the environment they enjoy exploring. Made of waxed linen it can be composted at the end of its life and return to where it comes from. Exit PFC coatings and zippers, everything on this one comes from Mother Nature.
