This planet is worth taking care of.
There are opportunities all around us
to do better for our environment.
These are ours.
Cette planète mérite d'être prise en charge.
Il existe des opportunités tout autour de nous de faire mieux pour notre environnement.
Ce sont les nôtres.

Et si nous voyions nos plus gros problèmes comme des opportunités à réinventer? Pourrions-nous créer des océans plus propres, économiser de l'eau douce et donner aux athlètes les moyens de s'engager de manière responsable avec l'environnement; tout cela en même temps?
Nous explorons toujours de nouvelles façons de faire exactement cela. Parce que lorsque nous créons des produits qui durent, nous en utilisons moins. Des matériaux recyclés aux tissus teints dans la masse, nous pensons que les équipements devraient pouvoir absorber un impact, pas en créer un. En nous associant aux principaux chercheurs en matériaux de l'industrie pour développer des tissus, des revêtements et des composants de qualité, nous travaillons pour offrir plus d'options que jamais là où performance et durabilité s'unissent.
Parce que c'est la différence entre faire un travail utile et faire son travail comme d'habitude. Et comme de meilleures options existaient, nous avons choisi de les prendre. Mieux pour vous, mieux pour nos ouvriers, mieux pour notre planète.

flame retardant
free tents
Flame-retardant chemicals are proven to break down over time and have harmful impacts on our health and environment. That’s why the our entire tent collection is made FR-free. Better for you, better for our factory workers, better for the planet.

There are growing concerns about the potential health and environmental impacts of chemical flame retardants in consumer products, including tents. Flame retardants have historically been used in tents to meet a flammability standard (CPAI-84), which originated in the 1970’s to address fire risk of paraffin-treated canvas event tents. In spring 2019, we made the commitment and switched to making all of our tents without flame retardants.

“The tent flammability standard that often necessitates the use of fire retardant chemicals—some of which are highly toxic compounds—is based on a decades old rule that was developed to protect against highly flammable paraffin-coated cotton circus tents. We’re challenging the value of applying this outdated standard to our tents in the interest of sustainability and our consumer’s health. We are eliminating their use from all future Mountain Hardwear tents.” -Joe Vernachio, President

“Ditching flame retardants allows us to apply silicone on both sides, which gives the tents higher tear strength and longer-lasting water repellency,”

allied feather
& down
With long-lasting quality and your safety in mind, experts at Allied Feather & Down diligently test and clean our down using environmentally-conscious practices to ensure it's free of chemicals, irritants, and foreign elements, such as dirt and oil, and that we’re reducing our impact in the process.

With quality control being paramount, Allied’s down is considered the highest-caliber. A byproduct of the food industry, its feathers are sourced from global suppliers who meet stringent requirements. Experts diligently test the down for content, species, fill power, cleanliness, and more to ensure the down is free of chemicals and irritants. They even send samples to an accredited down-testing laboratory.

While 400mm+ is considered hypoallergenic, Allied down consistently measures 1000mm+, making it the cleanest and most allergen-free down available. But the best way to achieve the warmest, lightest, most durable down is to clean it properly.

All down undergoes Allied’s proprietary washing process which involves multiple washes in biodegradable, environmentally-friendly detergent and recycled water.
From the washer, the down is thoroughly dried, cooled, and de-dusted. It then passes through a metal detector and is shipped in bags and containers that prevent foreign elements like dirt and oil from compromising the quality. This thoroughness and objectivity ensures that all Allied down not only meets but exceeds industry requirements.

PFC-free durable
water repellent
A Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating is needed to prevent saturation of water on your ski or rain shell, but we sought out a safer solution to the industry standard that wouldn’t compromise the durability or effectiveness of your waterproof shell.

Research showed that the industry standard, C8 or C6 DWR, produced a toxic byproduct over time that could end up in water droplets and on your skin. Since Spring 2018, we switched to a DWR treatment free of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs). This technology, known as C0 DWR, eliminates the persistent toxins associated with the long-chain carbon chemistry of C8 and C6 DWR.

The solution-dye process requires 89% less water, 63% fewer chemicals, and generates 60% less CO2 emissions than traditional dyeing, while creating colors that are more consistent, more colorfast, and that resist fading or washing out.

Instead of the traditional process—in which individual strands of unpigmented synthetic yarn are dyed using a large volume of water and chemicals—solution-dyeing involves mixing pigment directly into the plastic pellets. When the pellets are extruded into yarn, the output is a deep, permanently colored fiber that can be woven into fabrics without the use of water or additional dyes. It not only eliminates water pollution, it supports the longevity of the product, ensuring it will look new longer and prolong its replacement further.

“Our Life Cycle Analysis Studies indicate that a long and useful life is the single most effective factor for more sustainable outerwear. Solution dyeing directly addresses this key finding, as we anticipate that this process will produce better durability through much higher colorfastness. In addition, solution dyeing reduces a garment’s environmental impact with lower water usage, lower chemical usage and smaller carbon footprint.”
–Bernhard Kiehl, Gore Fabrics
Sustainability Leader
By skipping the dyeing process and leaving our equipment fabrics as is, we reduce our water impact and usage. Dyeing is a highly intensive, water-, chemical- and energy-consuming process. Removing this step in the process means we cut these resources out of the equation and keep their byproducts from going into the environment.
