Nunatak the down company is for sale!

USA made Sleeping Quilts

Our adjustable circumference down sleeping quilts have revolutionized the concept of ultralight sleeping bags.

The Arc quilt eliminates redundant fabric and fill under your body yielding a small packed volume and minimal weight. Low profile adjustable straps hold the quilt in place on top of any sleeping pad.

The Arc line consists of varying models, from the 5° F rated Arc Expedition with its full 3.5" of down filled loft, to the 3/4" thick Arc A.T., the ultimate tool for the fast and light.

What is Nunatak?

Nunatak Gear is dedicated to custom design and manufacture of quality ultralight sleeping bags and lightweight down jackets utilizing 800 or better goose down and sophisticated shell fabrics.

Nunatak is also a real business run by seasoned backcountry folks who've logged thousands of days in the wilderness. Our experiences range from high altitude mountaineering and backcountry skiing to climbing desert towers or alpine walls and doing multi week ultralight backpacks.

All this rambling about has translated into a desire to improve certain aspects of the gear, particularly sleeping bags.
Hence Nunatak, founded in the winter 1999.

From a basement operation in West Seattle with a bunch of good ideas and little else, we are now a full time business with a real shop located near Twisp in the heart of the wild North Cascades.

Nunatak has pioneered several groundbreaking designs on the ultralight backpacking scene, most notably the immensely successful Arc line of adjustable girth down sleeping quilts.

Practically all of our days off are spent in the mountains and every trip brings up new ways to improve the gear we're building.

Nunatak is designed and manufactured by backcountry specialists entirely here in the U.S.A.. We do it the good old fashioned way, one at a time.
