Nunatak hand builds the finest quilts and jackets 100% in the USA.

Down Sleeping Quilts

Our company is based in the North Cascades of Washington where we build innovative ultralight down quilts, sleeping bags and down jackets. Each is engineered for a lifetime of ultralight backcountry adventure

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 quilt for the fast and light.

We back our US made gear with a lifetime warranty for materials and craftsmanship.



For 15 years we have hand tailored the lightest and best quality down equipment for ultralight hiking and climbing enthusiasts. Our custom made gear enables you to choose shell material and color, extra down and ultralight liner fabrics.


What is Nunatak?

Nunatak Gear is dedicated to 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 countless 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.
