Sustainabilty Spotlight

New Zion pants and shorts, now made with recycled materials

PrAna was born with sustainability in mind. In 1992, founders Beaver and Pam set out to make fashionable and responsible clothing for active lifestyles. The high-performance apparel they produced was adopted by climbers, now a staple brand in the climbing community. PrAna is today recognised for their durable and earth-conscious clothing for all adventurers, whether at the crag, on a trail, or even in the office.

Continuing with their foundational values, PrAna have released an updated version of their Zion pants and shorts ranges. Introducing the ReZion. This update of the fan favourite Zion enhances the design while keeping the main attributes that people love. The four main ‘earth-conscious attributes’ are:

  • ReZion is made from a recycled nylon fabric. Use of environment-taxing raw materials is greatly decreased, without undermining the performance and durability.
  • Poly-fluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS)-free durable water repellent (DWR). What the heck does that mean? The water repelling coating used on the material is better for the environment, but still high quality.
  • bluesign®- approved materials. Materials in the garments are rigorously tracked from manufacturing to shipping, to ensure that no harmful substances are used.
  • Durable, so it can take on whatever your adventure has in store. This also means long-lasting, so less waste ends up in landfill.
