"Is Great Auk Outfitters the Ethical Alternative to Canada Goose?"
"Whereas other parkas... use down taken from birds, Great Auk parkas use a double layer of insulation including the NASA-developed aerogel."
"The Down-Less Parka encourages you to explore the arctic while respecting it at the same time."
Remember The Great Auk.
In 1844, the last Great Auk was hunted out of existence. These flightless birds once flourished on the craggy, rocky coasts of New England. The Great Auk, while nimble in the sea, was clumsy on land, making them easy prey for fishermen and hunters. They were hunted for food, fishing bait, and their soft down feathers. We proudly wear the Great Auk logo as a reminder of our birthplace, and our vision to create the world’s best cruelty-free, environmentally responsible, ethical apparel.
