    VOLCOM ZIP TECH® JACKET-TO-PANT SYSTEM KEEPS SNOW OUT

      CONNECT FROM THE LEFT, ZIP TO THE RIGHT, COVER & SHRED!   Volcom has officially patented Zip Tech®, our originally designed and heavily imitated jacket-to-pant interface. Zip Tech® enables you to zip the powder skirt of virtually any Volcom snow jacket to any Volcom snow pant, keeping the snow out and the heat in, without restricting movement. Falling has never been more enjoyable. It's no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let's face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on an icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort. Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® "zip your jacket to your pants" system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defence in keeping your body dry and your stoke high. Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech®   Inside and around the bottom of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® jackets is an inner powder skirt with a zipper running around the skirt that connects to a corresponding zipper track that sits just below the belt line of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® pants. Once connected, this hidden interface is the best barrier against snow finding its way into your outerwear. No other method of attaching a powder skirt or waist gator to your pants, be it through use of a series of buttons and clips, is as impenetrable to snow or offers the freedom of easy layering underneath as the patented Volcom Zip Tech® system does. Cross compatible between Volcom Outerwear jacket and pants styles as long as both feature Zip Tech®, the system also works across sizes, so that a small Zip Tech® jacket will work with a large Zip Tech® pant.

    We’re Caught Up In A Good Thing

    Volcom women's Simply Solid Collection begins with our long-standing love of the sea. This collection is primarily composed of a swim fabric spun in Italy from Econyl recycled yarn produced from discarded fishing nets and other dumped nylons. These ghost nets haunt our oceans and have the propensity to harm marine life below the surface. Recovered nets are “upcycled” with other forgotten nylons to help avoid this risk to marine life. Our swim fabric is made with Econyl knitted with Lycra Xtra Life yarns Our Simply Solid collection is made with 78% regenerated nylon. There is no loss of quality in the regeneration process. It’s 100% recyclable, creating a closed loop of regeneration so no new nylon is created or needed. Lycra Xtra Life yarns are UPF 50+ the maximum UV protection rating attainable. It is resistant to damage from chlorine and sunscreen lotions/oils and is made in Italy. Volcom Simply Solid Collection Volcom Simply Seamless Collection Volcom Simply Rib Collection Volcom Women's Simply Solid eco-swim story continues with new additions to the line. Introducing the Simply Solid Seamless Collection, the next evolution of our eco swim partnership with Econyl. This elevated collection is made using the same Econyl yarns as our Simply Solid Collection, but with a higher percentage, 82% regenerated nylon. Simply Seamless made with Econyl features super soft lycra yarns, an elevated aesthetic with clean lines and asymmetrical details and ‘Seamless’ finish that is double-sided for a premium look and feel. Volcom Womens eco swim story also grows with the addition of our Simply Rib Collection; adding another layer in our partnership with Econyl. Simply rib is 91% Recycled nylon and a focus on texture. This is a Volcom exclusive Rib Econyl made with Lycra Xtra Life yarns.   Campaign starring: Volcom celebrity ambassador Georgia May Jagger and Volcom’s world-class surfer Coco Ho, Surfer Maud Le Car and model Tina Kunakey.

    Repreve Fibres Made From Recycled Plastic Bottles Used In Volcom Clothing

    Since 2012, Volcom has been addressing the impacts of our raw materials with our partner Repreve by first including Repreve fibres in our t-shirts and has since included it in woven tops, fleece, pants, boardshorts, and more as a part of our ongoing environmental sustainability push. We’re proud to announce that since 2012, Volcom has helped recycle more than 10 Million plastic bottles that have gone on to find a second life in our products. Throughout our business, New Future program, and sustainability efforts, we are actively addressing our environmental and social impacts with a commitment to responsible manufacturing practices, better fibre sourcing, robust impact evaluation, and meaningful givebacks. IN THIS ARTICLE: What is Repreve? Why you should care about Repreve Product facts and benefits of Repreve Champions of Sustainability Award Technical talk New future goals What can you do? Repreve recycled fibre WHAT IS REPREVE? Repreve is a brand of recycled fibre that is made from recycled materials including used plastic bottles, which in turn is used to make sustainable clothing items and other products. More than 10 billion plastic bottles have been recycled by Repreve, and they are aiming for another 10 billion bottles by 2020. You will find Repreve in the following Volcom products: Frickin Chinos, select Mod Tech Boardshorts, Frickin Chino Shorts, Stone Storm Jacket, and core fabric fleece tees.   SHOP VOLCOM SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING SHOP VOLCOM SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING   WHY SHOULD YOU CARE? The abundance of plastics that are used in our daily lives – plastic bottles included – is becoming a global environmental and social issue that we can no longer ignore. Each minute, a million plastic bottles are bought around the world. That’s nearly 20,000 bottles being bought every second of every day this year. That’s more than a million plastic bottles per minute, most of which are not recycled. Our consumption of plastic bottles each year will likely top half a trillion by 2021. With lacklustre recycling efforts, plastic bottles are jeopardizing oceans, coastlines and other environments. The US plastic bottle recycling rate is on the decline, while manufacturing and consumption are on the rise. At the end of 2017, it was reported that the US plastic bottle recycling rate was down (for the second year in a row) to just 29.7%, leaving more than 70% of the bottles that are made unrecycled. Even worse, plastics, in general, see an estimated recycling rate of only 9%, leaving 91% destined for landfills or environmental litter. We have found that upwards of 65% of the environmental impacts associated with our products are from raw material sourcing and processing. So, when we eliminate the sourcing of virgin raw materials, we reduce our impacts. That means as a customer when you buy products made with recycled fibres, you are creating more demand for products that have a lower impact. 400 years: that’s the number of years it takes for plastic to degrade. That means most of it still exists in some form or another in our landfills, gutters, oceans or other areas, and will for many more years unless we, as humanity, do something about it. By mid-century, the oceans will contain more plastic waste than fish, ton for ton. Plastic manufacturing has doubled every 15 years and outpaces, in volume, every other man-made material. Half of all the plastic we make ends up as unused trash within a year of it being made. Scientists have estimated that each year, upwards of eight million metric tons of littered plastic end up in our oceans. You can imagine that as about five grocery bags of plastic trash for every foot of coastline around the entire globe. A recent study by Ghent University in Belgium found that people who regularly eat seafood accidentally consume up to 11,000 small pieces of plastic each year, and a study by Plymouth University found that one-third of all fish caught in the UK contained tiny pieces of plastic. Last year, the average American used an estimated 167 disposable water bottles, but only recycled about 38.   PRODUCT FACTS AND BENEFITS OF REPREVE There are about five plastic bottles in each boardshort made with Repreve Nearly 30% of the fibres that Volcom uses are polyester, second only to cotton Repreve fabric is made by transforming recycled bottles into an amazing fibre for reliable, durable quality clothing. When compared to the manufacturing of conventional/virgin polyester, mechanically-recycled polyester, per 1Kg of Woven Polyester fabric, results in: Approximately 62% less energy used About 99% less water used Up to 35% less waste created Upwards of 20% less CO2 emitted Our partnership has allowed us to use less petroleum and emit fewer greenhouse gases than those products made with conventional polyester fibres. CHAMPIONS OF SUSTAINABILITY AWARD Volcom’s preferred recycled fibre supplier is Repreve (a division of Unifi) who just recently announced that they had recycled their 10 billionth bottle and are on track to recycle even more: 20 billion by 2020! To celebrate that landmark, Repreve announced their Champions of Sustainability Award honouring brand partners who have helped them hit that landmark number along the way. Volcom is proud to be one of those brands having recycled at least 10 million bottles in our products to date.   TECHNICAL TALK Typically, when crude oil is refined, there’s a chemical extraction, then a polymerization, followed by a spinning of fibre into yarns. Lastly, the yarns are then woven into fabrics. The impacts of this process are energy use, GHGs, and air emissions. Recycled polyester eliminates the crude oil (conserving a precious resource), refinery, and chemical extraction stages. Instead, plastic bottles are collected, washed, separated, chopped, ground, melted and reformulated into a recycled chip, which is then melted and extruded into filament fibre to be used for the yarn and fabric process.   NEW FUTURE GOALS Because polyester plays such an important role in Volcom’s material profile, and because so much of our impacts come from raw material sourcing and processing, Volcom is committed to using more recycled content in our fabrics. In fact, by 2020, Volcom has committed to at least 20% of the synthetic fibres in the product range coming from recycled sources. This may not seem like much, but in 2014, only 2% of our fibres were from recycled sources. In 2017, we were at 17%. A continuous push towards a New Future!   WHAT CAN YOU DO? As a customer, it’s pretty simple. Help build a Smart Society! Reduce the amount of single-use plastic you’re consuming. Breakaway from relying on bottled water where and when you can. Need a nudge? Check out this awesome infographic with encouraging reasons to ditch the bottle, and watch Story of Stuff’s captivating eight-minute video on "The Story of Bottled Water." When you do use a bottle, RECYCLE IT, which in turn gives that bottle gets a chance to be made into a Volcom boardshorts! Where to recycle? What can I recycle?

    Hemp Was Introduced In Volcom Products More Than 10 Years Ago & It’s Back In A Big Way!

    LEARN ABOUT THE GREAT BENEFITS OF HEMP FIBRE AND SEE WHY VOLCOM FIRST USED HEMP IN PRODUCTS MORE THAN 10 YEARS AGO!   At Volcom, we’re envisioning a New Future where our oceans are strong, our climates are stable, and our societies are fully engaged. We are not new to this, we are True To This. In fact, this general vision dates back nearly more than a decade and it was back in 2006 when Volcom introduced hemp into the line for the first time. It was featured in a small collection which eventually helped us launch what was then called the V.Co-logical Series, Volcom’s first foray into more sustainable fibres, fabrics and processes. That program has continued to thrive and while we let go of the V.Co-logical branding, we have not let go of the commitment to making our products in a less impactful manner. In fact, an entire line of Volcom Stoneys Boardshorts are enhanced with hemp fibres. Better fibre sourcing is an important priority in our sustainability strategy, and hemp, considered one of the oldest fibres to be used in textiles, contributes greatly to the portfolio and ongoing sustainability mission. IN THIS ARTICLE: What is hemp? Why you should care about hemp Product facts and benefits of hemp Volcom product containing hemp Technical talk Moving forward Hemp crops are low input, meaning that they generally require little or no use of pesticides or herbicides. WHAT IS HEMP? Hemp is derived from Cannabis sativa, a flowering plant species that has been widely grown for its industrial and medicinal uses and effects of its derived products. Hemp is said to be one of the first plants that was introduced into society and its common marketplace 10,000 years ago as a usable fibre. WHY YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT HEMP? We have found that upwards of 65% of the environmental impacts associated with our products are from raw material sourcing and processing, so when we source better, more sustainable-based materials such as fibres, we reduce our impacts. That means as a customer when you buy products made with recycled, organic, or hemp fibres, you are creating more demand for products that have a lower impact on the environment. Growing crops for textiles results in environmental degradation that can have an impact on people and our planet. Additionally, crops require a lot of energy, water, waste, and land use. Hemp performs well in each of these areas. PRODUCT FACTS AND BENEFITS OF HEMP Hemp is a wonder fibre with at least 30,000 uses. The seed, the oil and the fibre are found in foods, beauty products, cleaners, paper, building materials, fuel, and in our case, textiles. Hemp, right next to linen (flax) has been used to make textiles since ancient times – we’re talking 2800 BC in China (it’s native to central Asia). In fact, hemp translates to cannabis in Latin, and apparently is the root word for “canvas,” used for making sails for boats. Hemp has an amazing history, not just in the United States, but throughout the world. It's been said that it’s one of the oldest plants that has been in continuous use by human civilization, perhaps even the world’s first agriculture crop potentially leading to the development of civilization itself! A great bang for the buck as hemp produces up to 3x more fibre per acre than cotton. Hemp fabrics are known for their excellent breathability, strength, versatility, adaptability, moisture absorbency, and naturally occurring antimicrobial features. It keeps you cool on the hot days and warm on the cold days. Hemp is a resilient, low maintenance crop which requires very little in terms of chemical inputs during its growing season. Hemp cultivation is associated with little waste as nearly all the by-products are used in one way or another. An annual plant, hemp grows relatively quickly (more than 4’ in month) and because it has a deep root system, it suppresses weeds and requires little, if any, pesticides. It leaves the soil in excellent condition for the next round of crops. In a study by the Stockholm Environment Institute that measured the ecological footprint, hemp was ranked lowest when compared to cotton and polyester (Volcom’s #1 and #2 fibres in terms of quantity). Mostly thanks to the high crop yields per hectare.   VOLCOM STONEYS BOARDSHORTS ENHANCED WITH HEMP   TECHNICAL TALK Hemp is a bast fibre (similar to flax and jute) and is made by extracting the woody fibre from the stalk by a process called retting which separates the fibre from the stems. Retting is done with either natural bacteria by a process called dew retting, natural water retting (standing and/or moving water), or water retting, which is done with either chemicals or enzymes. After the retting process, the stems go through additional processes to further remove fibres from the woody core. Those fibres are then combed and spun in preparation for textile manufacturing. MOVING FORWARD Because of its awesome sustainability profile, and because so much of our impacts come from raw material sourcing and processing, you’ll likely continue to see hemp in Volcom products. As of now, most of the hemp we acquire is grown in China. In the US, it’s contingent per state, with 39 states currently allowing the cultivation of industrial hemp for research and pilot programs. If you’re a fan of the benefits that industrial hemp offers, especially in your apparel products, keep an eye on the development of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018. Introduced by Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, S. 2667, if passed, would remove federal roadblocks to the cultivation of industrial hemp, the non-drug agricultural varieties of Cannabis in the US. VOLCOM PRODUCT CONTAINING HEMP We offer hemp in the Volcom Stoneys Boardshorts which contain a blend of hemp fabric. Try out a pair for yourself and experience how hemp fibers provide extra strength and durability.

“Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende” on Motorcycles Visiting Ancient Structures + Skateboarding | Speak Two The Wind
This bonus episode of Speak Two The Wind finds CJ Collins, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, and others wandering through Mexico on motorcycles, embracing the ancient colonial architectures, 2,000-year-old pyramids, and various skate spots as they make their way from Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende. After the U.S. and Europe tours were finished, we all agreed we had one more trip left in our reserve tanks, so we devised a plan to visit San Miguel de Allende, a colonial-era city 170 miles northwest of Mexico City. We took off from Mexico’s capital on motorcycles with a solid crew and ended up discovering a place called Tula, populated with 2,000-year-old pyramids and structures, it was quite a sight to see. Continuing our journey, we finally made it to San Miguel de Allende where we stayed at our friend Luka Barrena’s house who coincidentally has a skate bowl in his backyard. The bowl was perfect and his backyard was full of tents and motorcycles. A local chef even volunteered to cook the local cuisine for us. We shared good laughs and good food with the local crew, skating and sharing stories before it was time to head back to Mexico City. Once we arrived in the capital, our friends Los Viejos, who are a local metal band, played a show for us to give us a proper send off.

Episode 2 of Speak Two The Wind continues with the Volcom Skate Team as they find themselves motorcycling and skateboarding through Arizona and Utah, with stops at Glen Canyon Dam, Horseshoe Bend, Saint George, Valley of Fire and back to the Grand Canyon. After hitting spots in Arizona the crew hit the road heading north. As Chris Pfanner describes it, "it was like riding though a postcard for two weeks." Between the rides, spots were hit and tricks were documented. Towards the end of their two week journey the bond between crew only grew stronger and there was a yearning for more rides and open roads. With such a diverse group of international visitors on U.S. soil, there was no way they weren't going experience the crown jewel of U.S. Natural Park System. So with two weeks of grease and sweat in their jeans, they rode the south rim of the Grand Canyon to explore and take in its beauty. A perfect way to end and epic journey.

Episode 3: "Belgium to Germany" The Skate Team Arrives in Germany with The Picturebooks | Speak Two The Wind
Episode 3 of Speak Two The Wind finds the crew still riding high from the American leg of their two-wheeled journey. The second leg of this journey picks up with the Volcom Skate Team as they arrive in Belgium and battle the elements on their way to meeting up with The Picturebooks for a private performance at their home studio. There's little protection from the elements on a motorcycle and when the crew started their journey through Europe, mother nature decided to throw them a curve ball. Riding hundred sixty kilometers in the rain through Belgium to Germany they rendezvoused with The Picturebooks who accompanied them to their studio in Gütersloh, Germany. Son of legendary skateboarder Claus Grabke, Fynn and his buddy Philipp Mirtschink are the duo that make up The Picturebooks. Having both skateboarding and life on the road in common, the guys had no problem fitting in with the crew as they took them in from the rain and showed them the finer side of the local scene as they made their way to Germany. Local skateboarder and motorcycle enthusiast, Jonathan Thijs, also tagged along for the ride. After many miles on the road they finally reached their destination, the DIY skatepark in Hanover, Germany where a proper session went down before the rain crept back in. After the passing shower the crew saddled up and continued the journey further into the European countryside.

Episode 4: "Germany to Denmark" The Team Crashes at Motorious and Takes to the Streets | Speak Two The Wind
Episode 4 of Speak Two The Wind follows the Volcom Skate Team through Germany and Denmark as they meet up with the owner of Motorious, a vintage motorcycle shop in Denmark, and skate through the streets and local skate parks. On the way they stop in Berlin to pick up Arto Saari and Collin Provost. Known as one of the 'happiest places on earth' Copenhagen, Denmark was a much needed stop. Luckily, Kasper Krogh, one of the owners of Motorius, a vintage motorcycle shop in Copenhagen, was kind enough to give them a warm and dry place to sellep for a few nights. Located in the heart of downtown and close to Copenhagens many skate spots the crew was eternally gratefull for Kasper's hospitality. After a few days in the city on four wheels, and two, it was time to hit the road to the next, and final, destination.
