Northern Lite is a Finnish brand founded in 2018. Juuso, who crated Northern Lite, was tired of all the plastic in his hiking gear and desided to make a change. The founders are focusing on ultralite- hiking equipment, while simultaneously being kind to the environment, by reducing their "plastic footprint". Making fabrics made of recycled plastic and in the long run replacing plastic with biofabrics is Northern Lites' biggest priority. They have developed a rainskirt that is made from recycled plastic.
