Superlightweight yet durable, nylon is one of the strongest materials we use in our garments and equipment.


Nylon is one of the strongest plastics we use in our garments and equipment. When we need a superlightweight yet durable fabric, nylon is vital for its strength and moisture-wicking properties.

We’re making progress

We’re reducing our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source.

The percentage of virgin nylon we used in our products this season.

Where We Are

We still use a great deal of nylon, but we’ve switched to recycled sources for most of it: in our Spring 2021 line, only 2% of our entire material usage by weight includes virgin nylon.

What’s Next

Like polyester, nylon fiber is made from petroleum. Our goal is to stop using virgin petroleum-based fabrics and materials altogether.
