They are part of 1% for the planet, one of the originators. The company puts it's money where it's mouth is. Yvonne Chounaird (owner, founder) is a mountaineering legend and over amazing person. You really can't speak highly enough of their gear, they stand behind it 100%. Every bit as burly as Arcteryx or North Face. It is also Patagucci, because they are a tad bit expense. I had an old coat that was around 15 years old. It needed some repairs due to wearing out from use. They fixed it for free.
