Nival is the brand for committed climbers that has designed technical pants made from plastic bottles for climbing and hiking: the Nival Explorer ♼

a legendary version two ♼

Nival Explorer is an eco-designed, technical and versatile pair of pants made from recycled plastic bottles.

Designed for climbing and hiking, its modern, close-fitting cut makes it ideal for everyday wear.

It's incredibly stretchy, comfortable and water and odor resistant.

This second version of our legendary pants offers brand-new features such as an optimized diamond crotch yoke, enhanced by two brass breathing eyelets.

Visible seams are now nylon for added durability, and knee parts are now changeable and repairable.

Nival Explorer is available in alpine black and snow grey, a sober and elegant model.

91% of plastic waste is not recycled. Of the 8.3 billion metric tons produced, 6.3 billion have been transformed into plastic waste. Only 9% of this waste is recycled, according to National Geographic. 

Nival chooses to give a second life to plastic waste by using recycled polyester yarn. More than just a garment, it takes an average of 30 plastic bottles to produce a pair of Nival Explorer pants! 

Our mission is to help you own less and keep your technical pants longer.

A garment that lasts means a ton of memories when you wear it!

Why recycled polyester? 

Créer une marque outdoor est un défi d’envergure à l’heure actuelle. Les exigences techniques doivent répondre à l’appel de la transition écologique que nous prenons très au sérieux.

Choosing recycled polyester fabric (rPET) gives a second life to plastic bottles and a responsible approach to our pants.

Our use of recycled polyester has the direct effect of reducing the consumption of new polyester.

Recycling plastic waste into raw materials to make Nival Explorer was a profound change in our way of thinking. After more than 8 months on the project, we're more sensitive than ever.

A certified fabric.

Our fabric manufacturer De Licacy is a major player in Vietnam, certified by some of the most demanding labels in the textile industry, such as Bluesign®, Global Recycled Standard and Oeko-Tek Standard 100.

These certifications guarantee the absence of harmful substances and compliance with environmental and social standards. 

With 30 years' experience and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 compliance since 1999.

Our technical pants are designed in Vietnam and benefit from the country's renowned textile expertise.

We work with a small confectionery factory with whom we have a close, trusting relationship.

90% of our components are produced locally in Vietnam, within a 500 km radius, supporting a short circuit to minimize our carbon footprint. Our target for 2024: 99.9% local production.

Baptiste, one of the founders of Nival, has deep ties with Vietnam, having been adopted by a French family in 1994.

This special connection between France and Vietnam inspired him to create a French company that supports its home country through Nival's social initiatives and local production.
