Published September 11, 2019

PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Showers Pass has launched an update to its popular Transit Jacket. The updated Transit CC is the first item in the company's new "Clean Color" collection. Clean Color styles use the Bluesign approved dyes, which are certified to keep harmful chemicals out of the manufacturing process.

"This is one of the ways in which we've looked at the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes and identified an area for improvement," said Stephanie Leikas, the marketing director at Showers Pass. "Sustainability is a big part of who we are as a brand, and we've committed to moving to exclusively Bluesign-certified dyes for all our products by 2025."

The Transit CC jacket uses Showers Pass' proprietary Artex waterproof-breathable membrane, coupled with fully taped seams. The sleeves are extended to ensure wrists stay covered, and a new dropdown tail with map-reflect fabric improves low-light visibility.

"Whether you're bike-commuting to work, heading out on an urban adventure, or enjoying an impromptu hike with friends, the Transit CC jacket will protect you from foul weather without sacrificing style," said Jeremy Rider, the PR Director at Showers Pass. "The Transit Jacket has a very loyal following. Customers come to us with jackets they've worn every day for so many years that they are held together with duct tape. We are excited to offer them something new to love."

The Transit CC Jacket retails for $199. it is available in Yelling Yellow, Alps Blue, and Black. Men's Sizes are Small-3XL (3X in black only); Women's Sizes: Small-XXL.
