3. Seadon® is an English name, meaning ‘from the hill by the sea’. We’re known for our unique technical fabrics and sustainable practices.

From the moment Seadon set foot on this earth, our mission was to build an outdoors brand and product experience that echoed the environment – one that worked with nature, not against it.

Fishing equipment, also known as ‘ghost gear’, is the most deadly form of marine plastic debris, and there is A LOT of this material floating in our oceans today. We take this material and turn it into our trailblazing and ocean-cleaning Sunsail™ fabric.

Step 01: Net collection. We work with our reputable recycling company to recover discarded nylon fishing nets proactively sourced from the ocean (ghost nets), aquaculture operators, and the fish industry.

Step 02: Purify. Actualise. Collected nets of all sizes, weights, and colors are purified and radically regenerated back into original, pure nylon.

Step 03: Threads count. Regenerated nylon is reworked into our highest-quality, all-terrain yarn; with a few SEADON secrets weaved in to enhance its technical properties.

Step 04: The right knit. Our skilled fabric partner has developed a unique SEADON knitting technique based on our stringent performance requirements: ultralight, dynamic stretch, silky-soft feel, durability, and aesthetically A1.

To find your perfect fit, we have included the garment measurements below, so you can compare them with a pair of trousers that already fits you well. Please note that the inseam measurements will be different depending on how you style your Helios, which can be worn low or high waist.
