A superlight long-sleeved shirt in an easy-care, all-recycled polyester/organic cotton blend.
The Island Hopper helps you keep your cool whether you’re working your way through the Marquesas or the baggage line at Key West International. Its ultralight blend of moisture-wicking 65% all-recycled polyester and 35% organic cotton provides big-time ventilation and 15-UPF sun protection. It also washes easily with a quick dunk in the sink and dries fast. Made with light-colored fabric to reflect the sun’s rays and a straight hem and side vents for casual, untucked comfort. The oversized, drop-in chest pockets (sized for a fly box, passport or both) with mesh vents now feature a larger opening for improved access.
In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
