From Danny, Custom Team: “An all-around great guy, Ben Smith started Goosefeet Gear several years ago to make high-end down products for the ultralight backpacker. These down pants are supremely useful on winter camping trips when a wool base layer just won't cut it. Think about the puffy down parka on top, but what is keeping your legs warm? The down pants are well worth the extra weight and can be slept in at night to boost the rating of your sleeping bag or quilt.”
Your legs carry you from one adventure to the next, so make sure they get the warmth they need with these down pants from Goosefeet Gear. Made of durable 20d nylon and insulated with 850-fill-power goose down, each pair features a sewn-through construction that keeps the garment light and prevents the down from settling or bunching. The fabric’s DWR finish sloughs water when you find yourself in wet or snowy conditions, and the down is treated with water-repellent DownTek to stay drier longer. Elastic ankle cuffs seal out the cold, and the cinch-top waist has a shock cord and cord lock, allowing you tighten and loosen the pants as needed.
Note: This drop is for the black 20d fabric with 3.5 ounces of down fill (base price) or 5.5 ounces of down fill (+ $20). You’ll have your choice of M (30–34 inches) or L (36–40 inches) waist sizes, as well as inseam length: 28, 30, 32, or 34 inches. If your waist size falls between whole numbers, it’s best to round up. Quantities are limited to 40 pairs.
Ben Smith founded Goosefeet Gear during his third year of college at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The company started with down socks, and soon added waterproof over-booties and pillows. Today, 6 years later, its product line includes everything from down jackets, pants, and vests to sleeping quilts—all made by hand here in the USA.
