Picture Organic Clothing has always stood for sustainable outerwear development and the Object kit holds true to those values. Both jacket and pant utilize recycled polyester in their construction, a PFC-free DWR treatment and a recyclable membrane. As for specific design elements, the Object Jacket features dual chest pockets with waterproof zips, fully taped seams, 80 grams of insulation and a longer back for added flair. The pant boasts outer vents, reinforced cuffs that boost durability and an ultra-stretchy waist gaiter that came in handy after three days of devouring the exquisite cuisine offered at Retallack Lodge. “The fact that they’re 100-percent recycled really stood out to me,” said Retallack’s Viktor Vilks. “The pants also have great stretch, and the breathability was on point for both pieces.”
