Warm, windproof and packable, ultralight Kanyo punches well above its weight for sleek active layering whether it be spring summit stops, breezy autumn belays or chilly summer evenings around the tent.

  • Excellent warmth to weight ratio and fully windproof
  • Easy to pack down, fitting into its own chest pocket
  • 100% recycled fabric and 100% recycled insulation

When space is limited and the weather forecast’s about as effective as the Ben Nevis Forecasting Stone, it’s hard to know what layers to pack. The Kanyo is versatile in a range of conditions and packs in a surprising amount of warmth for its weight and pack-size.

The outer fabric and inner liner are made from a super light and tough recycled nylon fabric. The dense weave of the fabric forms a fully windproof sandwich around the insulation (inedible though), trapping vital body heat when you stop moving or the wind picks up.

We've used Primaloft Silver Eco insulation for its excellent warmth to weight ratio. This highly compressible fill allows the Kanyo to pack away into its own chest pocket (complete with hang loop for clipping to climbing harnesses).

Primaloft insulation doesn’t absorb water either, retaining its structure and keeping you warm even when wet. This, combined with a fast-drying and (PFC-free) water-repellent treated outer fabric, means the Kanyo really excels in changeable conditions — every other day in the British Isles then!

Not just a versatile outer jacket, the hood-less, low-profile design means the Kanyo can also double up as a super warm mid-layer in colder temperatures, its quilted 60gsm insulation fitting neatly under outer shells.

Designer's Notes

"With PFC-free DWRs and a 100% recycled fabric and fill, the Kanyo is our most sustainable jacket yet. We could have used (readily available) recycled polyester for the inner and outer fabrics, but we worked really hard to find a recycled nylon that would make the jacket last longer and further add to its sustainable design." – Ronnie, Design Manager

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

The Kanyo uses a PFC-free durable water repellent (DWR) on the outer fabric to defend against light showers (and dogs shaking themselves dry). This PFC-free DWR treatment is much more environmentally friendly than older chemicals, but it does require a little more care.

When dirt, grease and other grubby bits get onto your jacket, rain droplets soak in rather than ‘beading’ on the surface. To keep your jacket’s DWR treatment in tip-top condition, wash it regularly in pure soap or a ‘Tech Wash’ cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment about once or twice a year (depending on usage) using a wash-in or spray-on reproofer. Easy!

Environmental considerations

The recycled nylon fabric on the Kanyo is made using 100% post-industrial recycled content. This uses up leftover matter from nylon production as well as fabric scraps from the cutting process to remake it into brand new nylon fabric!

The Kanyo’s inner and outer fabric are both made from this 100% recycled nylon and we’ve used PrimaLoft® Silver Eco insulation – a 100% recycled polyester insulation.
