Framed Bears Ears packs are now available with an extensive selection of color, custom fit and pocket options - basically fully tailored packs. With lead time, of course.

6/01 - 2023

We are now selling hard-to-find supplies for the amateur gear maker; this includes goose down, eider down, pack frames and genuine Evazote foam. Link in top menu bar: SUPPLIES

5/12 - 2023

Our products can be had on an in-stock, ready to ship basis. Being a small company with lots of offerings we can't keep everything on the shelves at all times. Click on the top banner for a rough timeline of availability. 

8/20 - 2022

Reopening at limited capacity September first.

Jacket and bags, plus packs and dog bivys are pretty much the only products offered for now. Quilts are coming later, maybe around the New Year.

With a big move still being dealt with, plus a pending down size/restructuring of the business overall, there's the usual risk of lead times escalating into the red territory.

Click top banner for more details; or see the specific page for the product of your interest.

6/11 - 2022

Pretty much everything we offer, including packs, are on hold and unavailable until we finish our shop build. ETA unknown - maybe the fall. 

2/19 - 2022

March 5th is the last day to place an order for down/Apex products before the fall 2022.

Excluded are the Allmansright Liten/Bears Ears backpacks. See the product pages for details.

We are moving from Moab, Utah to Leadville, Colorado in 2022.

To pull it off we are building our own shop, a project that will consume most of late spring thru fall. Leadville, at 10200’ deep in the Rockies, has a short building season so we will be busy.

We aim to have every order shipped before mid May. Therefore we cannot accept new orders after Saturday March 5th.

Note: Dates and product availability may change due to the unpredictability of this scenario.

Due to global shipping issues we are disabling international shipping (except Canada) for the spring/summer. International customers can still order, but must arrange their own third party mail forwarding service. Google this. It is commonly used, even before this current shipping melee.  

We will try to keep Bears Ears/Allmansright packs in stock with only a 7-10 day fulfillment time thru out the year.

11/21 - 2021

The huge interest in our products is growing and threatening to overwhelm us (again!). Every day that goes by adds 3-4 days to the lead time.

We are closing for our annual Christmas break on December 5th this year with a reopening in mid January. Expect spring lead times to be ridiculously long.

Thruhikers with a March start are soon not able to receive anything from us in time.

Next year we are moving operations out of Utah. We are expecting to close for new orders from May thru late 2022 to facilitate this. Please contact us with questions.

10/16 - 2021

Had to close the ordering window for down jackets and Alpinist mummy bags 2 weeks early due to large demand - thanks all!

This also upped the lead-time to 12-14 weeks, effective when we open quilt ordering on November 1st 2021. Plan ahead!

Sorry, no Black Friday sale this year.

We have our annual winter/Christmas closure coming from mid December to mid January. Orders will ship during most of this period.

9/4 - 2021

Still fighting the long lead times.

The latest attempt, effective today, is to classify products into seasonal categories with defined windows of availability.

Down jackets and mummy bags open up for ordering in the fall so they presumably are delivered to the customer for their expected usage period: winter.

Quilts and their related products can be ordered only in the winter and spring, so they ship before 1) the thruhike season, and 2) the summer season.

The summer proper is closed for ordering so we can catch up and recharge.

2/19 - 2021:

In an attempt to lower our wait times we have reduced the number of available products to basically just include down quilts and Apex garments. 

1/8 - 2021:

Thanks to all who supported us in 2020, a challenging year for small businesses.

We are reopening on Wednesday January 20th, with expected lead times of 8-10 weeks. These could go up quick, depending on the volume of incoming orders.  

Apex will return in the form of jackets, pullovers and pants. Maybe one special use bag, we'll see.

We are introducing a new down quilt too, called the SULO Expert. With a tag line the goes "Luxury Third" it should be clear that it focuses on low weight and efficiency and one traditional camping comfort: warmth. Expect early spring for this one.

UPDATE, 1-20-21: We are terminating the development of the SULO in the 7d material, due to technical issues. It will be launched as a slightly more durable quilt in the regular Nunatak fabrics.

The IN STOCK & SALE page remain open. Lots of good stuff there; and expect more.

12/15 - 2020:

Our annual Christmas break is in effect. Ordering is disabled, but we are still working at a limited capacity and shipping past orders. Please limit calls and emails to essential subjects during this period.

A firm date for re-opening has not been determined yet, as we are currently deep in what we call Cottage Capacity (see below).

The IN STOCK & SALE page remain open. Lots of good stuff there; and expect more.

Lead times are 12+ weeks on all orders.

11/17 - 2020:

We are approaching our annual Christmas break. From December 15th to January 15th ordering is disabled. We are still working at a limited capacity; and shipping past orders. Please do not hesitate to call or email with questions during this period.

International orders are still not accepted due to Covid.

9/28 - 2020:

We are reopening again for ordering on October 1st in the morning. 

Shipping this year has been plagued by month long delays and lost and/or damaged packages. Due to these circumstances we are only accepting orders from the US and Canada until further notice.

Some of our international customers are using mail forwarding services. This is not an endorsement of this system, so check for yourself if it is going to work.

9/21 - 2020: 

Our Apex synthetic insulated products are no more. We are too small a company to wrangle all these different offerings and guarantee superior designs all at the same time. So only down from here on out. 

If you have an Apex order already in, it will be built and shipped in queue.

9/1 - 2020:

I am in the process of combining down fill volumes for regular untreated and HyperDry moisture resistant down for all products.

Up until this date untreated down volumes were slightly lower. No longer.
