For years, waterproof outwear relied on perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) to bead off outside rain and moisture, causing undue damage on the environment through bio-accumulation in natural ecosystems, wildlife, and even humans. Solving outerwear's dirty problem of creating toxic byproducts, the Columbia Men's Outdry Ex Eco Jacket features an innovative design with all-recycled, dye-free materials. Best of all, it doesn't rely on harmful PFCs for water-beading performance and saves 21 recycled plastic bottles from ending up in the landfill. The Outdry Ex Eco ingeniously places the waterproof membrane along the outside of the jacket, instead of using a face fabric with a water-resistant coating comprised of toxic PFCs. This funky construction technique repels water long after traditional jackets would become soaked along the face fabric, what's referred to as wetting out. As a side effect of never wetting out, the membrane is consistently able to pass sweat through its microscopic pores. Ultimately, this means it's less like a zipping into a sweaty garbage bag and more like your personal climate-controlled shelter.
