Nunatak Gear is dedicated to the design and manufacturing of quality ultralight gear utilizing 900FP+ goose down and sophisticated shell fabrics.

Nunatak was founded in the winter of 1999. From a basement operation in West Seattle with a bunch of good ideas and little else, we are now a full time business run by seasoned backcountry folks located in Moab, Utah.

Nunatak is designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. Everything we make is backed by our support and warranty.
