A "SUSTAINABLE" LIGHT-WEIGHT DOWN JACKET

At the moment, the most worn piece in my wardrobe has been a black, nylon, light-weight, padded jacket with a hood.  Although it's light-weight, the down padding has made it warm enough in cold weather over warmer layers.  So it's been a jacket for all seasons, come rain or come shine!  As I bought it 4 years ago and it's been my everyday jacket, it is beginning to get a little worn and jaded and I had been looking for a possible replacement.  I decided to buy this one below - like many of my clothes, it came from H&M!

Again, this is a lightweight down jacket with the shell and lining made from nylon (polyamide).  Although it is a fitted style, I  find that it's roomy enough for warmer clothes underneath.  The jacket fastens down the front with press-studs and the small stand up collar can be folded in and secured with a press-stud to form a v-neck.

I found the jacket hanging up in H&M's Sports section (it certainly looks good with sports leggings and athleisure pieces) but it doesn't actually come from their Sports collection.  It's part of their Everyday Fashion range and also bears their Conscious and Premium Quality labels.  Now the reason for it being one of their Conscious pieces is because the filling consists of 70% recycled down and 30% recycled feathers, so it is part of their efforts to support sustainabie fashion.For me personally it has a sustainable quality in that I will be wearing it such a lot and for a very long time!😊

I would also add that it is easy to pack the jacket into the small storage bag supplied (10x22cm) - really handy for travel.  It doesn't have a hood like my old jacket, so in cold or damp weather, I'll be wearing my beanie with it!  

H&M offer a recycling scheme for customers.  Just take along a bag of old clothing (they don't have to be H&M clothes) and you will get a £5 discount voucher off a  minimum spend of £25.

  1. I always feel good when I buy something that will be worn over and over. Not buying just to buy.
