Our heritage

We have been making down clothing and sleeping bags since 2005. Our customers have taken our down jackets all over the world; from the Alps, to the Himalaya to Antartica. Some people go around the world, some never stop. Their adventures are our legacy.

Design matters

Every element of our down jackets are carefully considered and tested by our in house design team. It starts with big decisions such as choice of down fill, construction and outer fabric right down to the design of the zip pullers and hang tag. Nothing is left to chance.

High Quality Materials & Workmanship

Our philosophy is to make jackets that last so we only spec materials and use the best factories. If you can hand your down jacket on when you have finished with it we know it is a job well done. Sure we have constraints, but that is the challenge of design.
