Fabric & Care

The take a hike shorts are made with 88% recycled nylon and 12% spandex (aka sturdy and flexible).

Our recycled nylon is pre-consumer recycled nylon, a process resulting in a fiber that’s super high quality, certifiably sustainable and available with performance technologies that are important for #recreating (e.g. quick dry, breathable!). Recycled nylon uses 75% less carbon emissions then virgin nylon production. Our specific nylon is also certified by the Global Recycled Standard which means a third party verifies the recycled input materials, tracks it from input to the final product and also ensures responsible social, environmental practices and chemical use through production.
