The “NADA” in Merrell’s NADA Nanuk jacket stands for “Not Any Dye Applied.” From the fabric down the zippers, there’s not a drop of dye in this garment, resulting in major reductions in water, energy and chemical use during production. Aside from the environmental impact, the absence of dyes gives the jacket a sleek, monochromatic look.
In addition to its environmental credentials, the Nanuk is fully seam-sealed, with 100 percent polyester, waterproof, breathable two-layer rip-stop fabric. We like the rubberized zippers, removable hood and powderskirt and the environmental savings embroidered on the sleeve (with dye-free thread, obviously).
NADA Cirque available for men.
