This jacket from Passenger Clothing is honestly AMAZING, it's like stepping into a super snug sleeping bag and it's exactly the same as the one you always see my wearing in my instagram vidoes apart from... drum roll please... it's made from RECYCLED MATERIALS!
The Rowan insulated jacket is super versatile, made from recycled plastic bottles and the lightest in the range from Passenger Clothing; lightweight, durable and made from recycled ripstop with a DWR water-resistant finish, it's also PFC FREE.
It's a packable space saver which is so important on those long haul trips and even more convenient when you need to throw on or off an extra layer. Enough tech to keep you warm wherever you roam this winter and the right amount of design and style to keep you looking good too.

WHY I SUPPORT PASSENGER
Passenger Clothing have been a favourite brand of mine for as long as I can remember. Even though they aren't 100% plastic free as a company they have been working on changing this for a long time and that's why I choose to support them. When you have larger companies that are trying to go plastic free it doesn't happen over night and their research into solutions and being more sustainable is something I really admire!
Having worked in a warehouse for 12 years I have seen the devastating about of plastic waste every day and to see a company like Passenger working hard to change this is so admirable as I have seen first hand how daunting it can be!
By 2021 Passenger are aiming to be 75% sustainable with some incredible ranges dropping next year including recycled ranges, organic ranges and even some clothing made out of sustainable tree fibres! They will also be trialling card wrapped t-shirts and basics using no plastic; they are working to find the best solution to the plastic issue without causing other issues to damage of stock or another environmental problem and this is something I am massively behind!
RECYCLED Rowan Insulated Jacket Charcoal - Passenger Clothing
I was super excited to stock Passenger Clothing as they have been my favourite brand for a long time. Their clothing actually fits, and fits nicely! It's true to size and doesn't run small so you don't have to buy sizes up for a comfortable fit.
They have agreed that the clothing will not be delivered to me in plastic bags which means it's completely plastic free from the company - this is amazing and not heard of from online clothing brands!
"We pay attention to the smallest details and design them to transport us from the daily grinds but still usable for everyday life. Stories of escapism are woven into the fabric of our products and each design tells a different one, the smell of a campfire on a beanie or the sweat-stain on a favourite t-shirt. We design all our products with this in mind, hoping that another story will be made with each one. We believe that what you wear reflects who you are and that’s important to us.
We’re inspired by stories of like-minded people and we love sharing them. That feeling found every time we tell or read an ‘oh man you should have been there’ story. Our mission is to help people escape through their own journey even it’s only for a short while. Everything we do is inspired by the desire to live a life of memorable adventures – big or small, short or long. It has never been about destinations for us but rather the journeys that lead us there and the memories we make along the way."
