What dreams are made of. Sustainable, super cozy, and bright as can be, the Teca Fleece is the cold-weather cousin of the Teca Windbreaker. This iteration adds a hood and shortens the zipper length, for even more cozy, camp-inspired style. Great as a stand-alone jacket or midlayer, each Teca Fleece is made from best-in-class, recycled fleece and DWR-treated, polyester taffeta left over from other companies’ production runs. This keeps perfectly good materials out of the landfill, instead putting them in the hands of thoughtful adventurers like you. Love a colorway? Better act fast: Teca is made using repurposed materials, which means that each colorway is also limited edition.
100% recycled polyester
Elastic binding hem and cuffs

Stripes: repurposed polyester taffeta with DWR finish
Teca jackets are produced at a forward-thinking factory in northeastern China, where worker well-being is a top priority. The factory is also working to meet the highest standards of sustainability and efficiency within the next few years. In partnership with this factory, we keep leftover fabric from other companies’ large production runs out of the landfill by turning it into limited-edition Tecas.
