Would you buy this jacket with a revolutionary natural material that also helps monarch butterflies?

The Altitude Sports x Quartz Co. #Belfort is a men's parka insulated with milkweed, designed with a functional length and a fitted silhouette. It features a detachable hood, a zip front closure covered by a buttoned storm flap, as well as a fishtail at the back. It is a versatile jacket that epitomizes northern elegance.

Altitude Sports and Quartz Co. have joined forces to create the world's first milkweed insulated urban winter jacket. #Milkweed is a plant fibre distributed exclusively by #MonarkMD. Milkweed is a great insulator, light, locally grown and entirely plant based. Furthermore, growing milkweed increases the survival rate of the endangered Monarch butterfly, since it is the only plant used in its reproductive process.
