Why we chose the Nikita Willow Pullover Snowboard Jacket: A resort-friendly jacket that gains extra points thanks to its style and sustainability.
Nikita’s gone all in this winter as the brand is celebrating two decades of existence. The much loved all-female brand is introducing its largest sustainable line yet for winter 2020/21. A wide range of this year’s collection has been produced using sustainable methods, with the Nikita Willow Pullover Jacket being one such item.
Born as a brand to make clothes for girls who ride, Nikita has come a long way since they first started off in the back of a skateboard shop in the late 90s. 20 years later, the brand is still driven by the same rad agenda, and Nikita’s ability to mix style with practicality is what’s earned the Willow Pullover Jacket its spot in this year’s Whitelines 100.
“By choosing to use an insulation that is 100% made out of post-consumer plastic bottles, Nikita’s giving a new life to up to 10 plastic bottles per jacket”
Embarking on the journey for a greener future, Nikita’s teamed up with Thermore and are featuring the Thermore EcoDown Insulation in a bunch of their new 2021 collection – including in the Willow Pullover Jacket.
By choosing to use an insulation that is 100% made out of post-consumer plastic bottles, Nikita’s giving a new life to up to 10 plastic bottles per jacket. This means a decrease in plastic landfill and it’ll also help protect energy reserves for future generations. The Ecodown Fibers also stop the use of microfibers, and thus prevent additional plastic from polluting our lakes, oceans, and eventually our food.
With a 60g insulation in the body and 40g at both sleeves and hood, the Willow Pullover Jacket is made for the rider who doesn’t want to end up getting cold on the chair lift but keen to hike off-piste every once in a while without breaking into a serious sweat.
