North Face Denali Fleece Jacket

This one is noticeable because of its high level of recycled content.

From the company:
“The North Face Denali extended-size fleece jacket is a straightforward, comfortable all-around jacket for winter climates. Wear it as a mid layer or outer layer, depending on conditions”.

Townsend & Mt Mueller, Snowy Mountains, NSW

Features:
* Polartec 300 Series® fleece (87% recycled content in the solid colors and 65% in the heathered) is warm, lightweight and compressible
* Durable Water Repellent finish fends off light rain showers and snow
* Abrasion-resistant, laundered 2-ply nylon on upper body and elbows provides reinforcement and durability

This doesn’t seem to be widely available in Australia as yet.
