We’ve spent more than 99% of our time on Earth as nomads. For over 2 million years we migrated across arctic tundra, grasslands and deserts, only carrying what we needed, only keeping what was necessary, and only using the things we had to hand.

Today the last remaining nomads roam the planet. Masters of surviving in harsh and fast-changing environments, they know what it takes to work with nature and leave no trace. So while the rest of the world remains underprepared for Earth’s increasingly volatile climate, nomads have always been ready.

Our Nomad Puffer is built for the times where all you have are the clothes you have on, and every piece of gear has to work across multiple climates and terrain. Designed to recreate the feeling and performance of the original seal skin clothing worn by Arctic nomads, they’re engineered to work like a second skin, protecting you from the wind, cold and rain.

We’ve rebuilt the softest clothing made by our toughest Arctic ancestors.

Early Arctic rain jackets were made from seal guts

Rain jackets made from seal intestines were used across the Arctic because of their natural water repellency. The intestines would be dried out in long strips, before being sewn together into jackets using sinew thread. They were worn for hunting on land in wet weather and travelling by kayak. But while they were effective at keeping out the rain, they weren’t massively durable. Hunters would go through two or three of them a year.

Size + Fit

Our Nomad Puffer is designed with a loose fit, with plenty of room for other layers underneath. If you prefer a closer fit, we recommend you go for the size down.
