Sustainable windbreaker for men and women designed to withstand tough conditions while being light and flexible released this week. Since we at YMR Track Club have a background in athletics where every small hundredth or centimeter can be the difference between success and failure, the lightness and flexibility of the garments is constantly in focus. Something that has been very important in the development of the new Utö Windbreaker. YMR Track Club’s CEO Peter Häggström Lindecrantz explains:
“Outerwear like Utö Windbreaker must withstand the tough external conditions we have here in the Nordics. It is windy, it rains and snows when we are out training. At the same time, lightness and agility are so important for us because running must be smooth and easy. In the Utö Windbreaker, we have managed to solve this equation and created an outerwear that has all the properties we are looking for,”says Peter.
PART OF THE UTÖ COLLECTION
Utö Windbreaker Black is a sustainable windbreaker and a part of our Utö collection, where the focus is on light, flexible and durable materials. The collection also includes garments such as Utö Shorts in burgundy and yellow, and Utö Running Cap in black. The jacket is perhaps our most discreet garment to date with black prints against the black ripstop fabric that we knitted and dyed in Sweden’s Textil district Sjuhärad. This fabric is also environmentally certified ÖKOTEX 100 Standard, Class 1 which is the toughest requirement. At the back we have placed a reflex to light up in the dark. With the Utö Windbreaker we have created a black windbreaker made for training outdoors during all seasons of the year.
It is a very flexible and light wind jacket adapted for training outdoors during all seasons in our Nordic climate:
- 100% recycled polyester, GRS-certified
- ÖKOTEX Certificate 100 Standard, Class 1
- Normal fit
- Very light fabric developed by microfiber technology with good breathability
- Fabric woven and dyed in Sjuhäradsbygden in Sweden
- Hood with elastic band
- Pockets on the sides with zipper
- Pocket on the chest for a mobile phone, for example
- Reflex on the back
- Brass clasp on zipper at the front
- Ventilation panels on the back
- Print in black on chest and shoulders that are Bluesign certified
The plan is to release the new Utö Windbreaker at the end of the week. We hope that you will like it as much as we do!
