How to Measure

Chest - measure around your chest at the widest part. The tape measure should pass under your arms, and be level from front to back.
Waist - measure around your waist at the narrowest part.
Sleeve - With your arms relaxed by your side, tilt your head down and ask a friend to measure from the bone at the base of your neck, over your shoulder and down your arm to the fold at your wrist.

Description

Gravitas is for ultimate wet weather freedom. It’s a barely-there-barrier that’ll keep you dry inside and out when working hard. An ultralight and ultra-packable waterproof it gives protection with uncompromised performance in hostile weather. Gravitas is your companion when weight is at a premium on two feet or two wheels.

  • Minimalist 3-layer construction with lightweight, durable, 10D recycled fabric
  • Highly waterproof and breathable 20K/30K fabric for working hard in wet weather
  • Hood designed to stay secure in high winds and roll away in calm weather
  • 100% recycled nylon face fabric and 100% PFC-free DWR

Designer’s notes

“Everyone knows that boil-in-the-bag feeling from a waterproof that doesn’t breathe. For Gravitas, we wanted to create an ultralight jacket for working hard in the hills that’d leave that clammy feeling a thing of the past. And we’ve done it. It’s a 200g jacket, yes, 200! (size M) with a 3-layer construction, 20K hydrostatic head and 30K MVTR.

But we didn’t want to just chase the numbers or compromise durability. The outer fabric is fully recycled 10D nylon that’ll take the wear and tear of the trail, there’s a wire peaked hood that can be stowed quickly, semi-elasticated cuffs for comfort and it’ll pack down into its tiny stuff sack too.”

Ronnie, Clothing Design Manager

Sustainability and Product Care

Sustainability


Recycled materials

Gravitas uses a 100% recycled nylon outer fabric, made from post-industrial sources. This uses any leftover stuff from nylon production and fabric scraps from the cutting process and remakes it into brand new nylon fabric.


PFC-free DWR

Gravitas has a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on its outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that and are one of the first outdoor brands in the world to eliminate them from our range.


Where it's made

Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.

All our factories sign up to our Code of Conduct. Find out where we make our product by visiting our Factories of Alpkit factory zone.


Reducing our carbon footprint

We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intensity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.


End of life

When your partnership with this product is over send it back to us and we will pass it on to someone that needs it through our Continuum Project.

Washing instructions

Wash: 30˚C, delicate cycle at or hand wash with lukewarm water.
Dry: Line dry or tumble dry on low heat.
Iron: Use a cool iron to reactivate the DWR.

Use a technical wash product (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water.


Caring for your DWR

To keep your jacket’s DWR treatment in good condition, wash it regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment once or twice a year dependent on usage. Use a spray-on reproofer to maintain your jacket's wicking ability.
