As a brand that prides itself on it's Chicago heritage, it dawned on us earlier this year that we had never created a jacket that could truly stand up to our legendarily brutal winters. Ironically, when it came time to actually make the jacket, we decided to step outside of Chicago and rely on the expertise of Seattle's Crescent Down Works for the manufacturing.
Blending CDW's decades of down manufacturing experience with our unique eye for design and detail, the Northwoods Down Parka is our take on their iconic Arctic Montagne.
Originally engineered to withstand the frigid summit of Mount Rainier, our version is designed to weather the deepest freeze the upper midwest has to offer. The Northwoods Down Parka features a weather-resistant tech shell from Japan and a 700 fill power goose down lining. Featuring heavy duty custom branded hardware and YKK zippers, we obsessed over every tiny detail in our quest to create the world's best American-Made winter parka.
The result of our year of designing, sampling, testing and nitpicking every tiny detail is, we believe, the very best American-made down parka you can buy, and at an incredible value as well. While this is certainly not an inexpensive piece, you can rest easy knowing that you're investing in a garment that, with proper care, should last a generation. And we guarantee it will never go out of style either.
