Our founder, Eddie, was an outdoor guide. Born and raised in Washington State, he learned to fish before he was in school, learned to hunt before he finished grade school. His passion for adventure built an iconic American brand.

Eddie’s creation of the first down jacket revolutionized cold-weather outerwear. It also began a tradition of adventure-driven innovation that the company carries on today. To build our technical gear, we work with professional guides from concept to finish. Only when the guides have tested each piece and say it’s ready do we offer it to you. But uncompromising quality is not limited to our most technical products.
