Obermeyer is pleased to partner with Repreve® and weave our most popular styles with their proprietary fabric. Repreve® transforms recycled plastic bottles into athletic and fashion apparel. Embracing a new future performance fiber made from recycled materials creates products that are making a difference. Transforming recycled bottles into a repurposed fiber with embedded properties like wicking, adaptive warming and cooling, water repellency, insulation, and more…. Reliable, durable quality. We embrace and support finding new life for recycled materials.
Compared to making what's called virgin fiber, making Repreve® offsets using new petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process. That makes a big difference for our future. Forward thinking technology is making a difference. Billions of plastic bottles go into landfills every year and Repreve® technology has recycled over 20 billion plastic bottles to date. Over half of all of Obermeyer products sold now utilize Repreve® recycled fabric and insulation technology. And now you can do something about it and support this technology. Repreve® is the leading, most trusted, branded performance recycled fiber currently available for activewear.
