Are you even South African if you don’t whip out the K-Way as soon as the temperature starts to dip? Cape Union Mart is the first-stop destination for Saffas on the hunt for outdoor gear, gadgets or, yes, winter threads. And the K-Way down jacket is the unofficial uniform for braais, camping trips, festivals… and any other outdoor activity. 

Now, the iconic local brand has taken things a step further by giving SA’s favourite cold gear a sustainable makeover. We’re talking social and environmental responsibility that invokes real, impactful change. 

K-Way is constantly striving to do things better, more ethically and more sustainably. And their partnership with Re:Down® is helping them do just that. Re:Down® is an international company that collects used down from post-consumer goods. Then begins a thorough process of sorting, extracting, washing, drying, sterilising and quality-checking before the down is cleared for good-as-new reuse.

So if you’re wanting to upgrade your outdoor gear, why not choose something with sustainability in mind? This gear guide is good for the environment and perfect for your many exciting adventures ahead!
