This shell will allow you to use your down socks around camp and for those midnight calls of nature. They have a Dyneema X sole, along with a silnylon upper with a shockcord drawstring at the top to seal out rain, snow, and the cold. There is a second drawcord at the ankle to help cinch the over-booties around the socks. They also have a removable closed-cell foam insole for extra foot protection when walking around camp. If you would like for these to be completely waterproof, you will need to seam seal these yourself. Starting at $45 –
Stuffed with maximum-lofting 850+ fill power down, these down pillows are soft and warm. Great for back and stomach sleepers.

The company started out with down socks as the primary product, and quickly moved into other simple areas like waterproof over-booties and pillows. I started designing other products in late 2010 – mostly down pants, balaclavas, and vests. I used word of mouth to sell quite a few of these items. Starting in 2011, I started making jackets and quilts as well.
Every item that we make is hand-made in the USA, so you can feel good about the fact that your hard-earned money is helping to keep a small local business going.
