Chromag Announces Expanded 2020 Apparel Line
@mbl77: Not a bad idea. But really hard to do. Hell even on the manufacturing side it's hard to verify how sustainable products are for a smaller company like Chromag.

Chromag Announces Expanded 2020 Apparel Line
@NotSorry: Yeah I totally get that. The initiatives that Patagonia, TNF, and many of the other large outdoor brands have pushed through in their supply chain have been great for that. A definite example of "a rising tide lifts all boats." There are many more fabric mills and dye houses that are now actually helping to decontaminate the water sources they use because of these mandates. Still tons of stuff that isn't great. It's a bummer from an end product point of view when you have to walk away from a manufacture that produces good stuff because they are doing crappy stuff in the health, economic, or environmental side of their business.

@NotSorry: Problem is most of the knowledge, machines, and the real human skill for creating technical outwear is over in Asia. There is only a very very small group of people in the States/ Canada who are not working for the top outdoor companies (The North Face, Arcteryx, Patagonia, etc.) that can make tech outerwear, let alone ones who know to really create on a large production scale. There is a company in the states that does do standard and semi custom GTX and other high end fabric outwear I just can't remember their name. That being said these pieces aren't THAT technical and certainly within the skill/ machines of standard cut and sew garment construction. I was kinda surprised that Cromag went with a C6 DWR on the Factor since the whole outdoor industry is moving away from hydrocarbon DWR chemistries.
