In support of POW’s important work, Tactics warehouses and fulfills all online orders for POW merchandise, sending 90% of all purchases directly to POW. The remaining 10% helps partially offset some of our direct costs such as shipping, packaging, and credit card processing fees. Through March 2020, this partnership has generated over $600,000 to help further POW’s mission.
- 80% Organic Cotton, 20% Recycled Polyester
- Standard Fit
Organic Cotton - Grown without petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides, organic cotton is healthier choice for the Earth, the people working in the fields and for you the consumer.
When compared to conventional cotton, organic cotton per 1,000kg of fiber used in apparel results in:
46% less CO² equivalent emissions (which are significant contributors to global warming)
70% less SO² (Sulfur Dioxide) equivalent emissions; a driver of soil acidification and thus, acid rain.
26% less PO4³ (Phosphate) equivalent; a measure of eutrophication potential (the potential for the creation of aquatic dead-zones)
62% less primary energy demand (PED), measured in MJ, from non-renewable sources like petroleum and natural gas that depend on fossil resources.
The consumption of up to 91% less non-rain water (blue water) while typically requiring less irrigation.
Recycled Polyester - There are over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris floating in the oceans. Recycled polyester won't fix that but this is better for the Earth than creating virgin polyester for products.
About POW - Protect Our Winters is a global nonprofit fighting climate change by engaging and mobilizing the outdoor sports community.
When it came time to replace my own before winter, it turns out things had changed and not in a good way. While the print is the same, the base hoodie is a different brand that while not super cheap, is nowhere near the same quality. That thick, awesome sweatshirt worth $70 is maybe a $35 one now. It’s also not the same sizing and the Large, which was once about perfect for me, is now too small rendering my replacement a pass down in the making.
Still a huge POW fan but not a huge fan of this hoodie at this price anymore. Bummer.
