Designer‘s notes

"We designed the Vayper shorts primarily for runs in hot weather but they’re so light you could use them for watersports or as sleepwear on hut-to-hutting adventures. For those of us that run hot, these shorts have the perfect ‘barely there’ weightless feel. The only problem is the possibility of suddenly panicking that you forgot to put them on!" - Ronnie, Design Manager

How It Is Made

Recycled Materials
We always choose the most environmentally preferable materials and are moving our entire range to recylced wherever possible.

Where It Is 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.

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 intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.

End of life
