Ride heavy, tread lightly.
The Planet Earth Tread Jacket has taken into consideration the future of our earth by using eco-conscious materials such as recycled polyester, S-Café material from recycled coffee grounds, and Eco DWR. The Tread Jacket is made with Planet Earth's Progressive Long fit, so you don't have to worry about the jacket riding up on you every time you move. Other features include Lycra wrist gaiters, a detachable hood, and a powder skirt with integrated jacket-to-pant interface.
- S-Café is a yarn-like material made from recycled coffee grounds that is woven or knitted into fabric
- Recycled polyester takes scraps from the floor and keeps them out of the landfill
- Fully taped seams keep moisture from getting in at punch holes from stitched seams

This jacket looks amazing and feels amazing.
Used it for a nice 4 day trip to Big Sky Mt.
Kept me warm and dry.
Long length is great. I'm 6'2" and this jacket long enough so I don't get powder up my back.
There's also a pocket on the left sleeve perfect for chap stick.
Planet Earth Tread Jacket - Men's has two...
Planet Earth Tread Jacket - Men's has two different descriptions regarding the hood. One says detatchable and the other non-detatchable.
Which is correct?
The hood is fixed
I ordered this right after Christmas with the free two day shipping in order to get it for the next weekend. I was afraid when it did not ship out the first day and was getting late into the next. I sent an email about when it would be shipped and soon after the orders status had been changed to shipped. I also got a friendly letter explaining that it wasn't shipped the previous day because of holiday reasons. In the end the jacket shipped and I got a fast and concise response to my email.
Now onto the jacket. So the picture is a little misleading for the "Gold Rush" option. I did not get a chance to look at in the store beforehand and went solely off of the picture. When I bought it I was under the impression that it was a solid yellow. It turns out that there is black streaked throughout the jacket making it a little darker than the yellow in the picture. The name states it perfectly with "Gold Rush" since gold is a darker yellow and has dark streaks before it is refined. I will say that in the end it is a pretty sick effect since a flat color can be hit or miss. I was looking for a solid yellow jacket but was having a hard time looking for one with the long fit and found this to be one of my few options.
In terms of the pockets it has the standard 2 front pockets and the chest pocket. On the inside there is a pocket which fits the classic ipod perfectly and has a small hole to the outside of the jacket for earphones. There is also a sweet pocket on the left sleeve which I did not know about.
The powder skirt is not removable but can be tucked seamlessly into the jacket. I have always had the removable and have to say I like this feature a lot because they did a good job with it not being annoying when wearing it as a jacket not on the mountain. It is a very clean minimalist jacket which suits my needs perfectly. I have had about 4 different jackets over the years and I have to say this will be my top choice when getting on the mountain. I have not had a chance to use it on the mountain but wanted to get this post up. I will most likely be posting again on the functionality part when I try it out at Wisp resort on the East Coast.
