DWR stands for 'Durable Water Repellent'. This is a coating added to a fabric in the factory to make it water resistant. It helps stop jackets 'wetting out' and is used on garments which have breathable membranes and those which do not. In garments with breathable membranes 'wetting out' seriously reduced the breathability of the garment and so DWR treatment is an important part of the waterproofing proccess. DWR wears off over time and will need to be re applied with the appropriate Nikwax product.
Patagonia seek to build the best product and cause no unnecessary harm. As it applies to making products, they work hard to source materials and use processes that are less harmful to the Earth without compromising quality. At Patagonia quality is not only how well a product performs and holds up, but also how it's made.
The following are classified as E-fibers, which are more responsible alternatives to traditional materials: organic cotton, hemp, non-chlorine treated wool, recycled polyester, recycled nylon and Tencel lyocell.
Patagonia's recycled polyester is made using scraps from the cutting room floor and even old Capilene. Their recycled nylon is reprocessed from post-industrial fibers and yarn.
