When urban and the outdoors meet, magic happens. This Teca offers a different silhouette for one of their bestselling layers.
Cotopaxi uses 100% remnant fabric to build each Teca Jacket, which means material that might have gone to a landfill gets a second chance to shine.
Because each Teca is made using leftover fabric from other companies’ production runs, each colorway is also limited-edition. Once your favorite sells out, it’s gone for good!
Lightweight, color-blocked, and wickedly retro. Then there’s the elastic hood binding, encased elastic cuffs, and internal hem bungee—our proverbial “cherries on top.”
We don’t just use any leftover fabric to create the Teca. Cotopaxi uses high-quality repurposed polyester taffeta with a water-resistant DWR finish.
A new iteration of our tried-and-true Teca Windbreaker, this cropped layer provides weather resistance without sacrificing mobility. Made with 100% repurposed polyester taffeta with a DWR finish and 600 mm PU backer, the Teca Crop hits at the natural waistline for a relaxed but flattering fit, and adds a pop of retro color to any adventure. Pair with rollerblades and skyscraper vistas for an urban twist on outdoor exploration.
Cotopaxi ties its earnings to impact by allocating 1% of annual revenues to the Cotopaxi Foundation. The foundation awards grants to outstanding nonprofit partners who are carefully selected for their track records at improving the human condition and alleviating poverty. This year alone, the foundation has awarded 34 individual grants, directly assisted 750,000 people, and donated over $400,000.

The Teca is produced at a forward-thinking factory in northeastern China, where worker well-being is a top priority. The factory is also working to meet the highest standards of sustainability and efficiency within the next few years. In partnership with this factory, we keep leftover fabric from other companies’ large production runs out of the landfill by turning it into limited-edition, unisex Tecas.
