In 1975 in Hudson, Massachussetts, a man named Harvey Gross decided that American outerwear deserved better. He acquired an old textile mill in the town, and turned it into a factory - in fact, he turned it into one of the few factories in the world capable of manufacturing insulated down apparel.
And thus, Penfield was born. For decades, the brand has been innovating in the down insulated outerwear space ever since, developing the best and most comfortable designs and the sturdiest, coziest fabrics. Penfield is all about practicality, design, form and function - all key elements for a life spent exploring the great outdoors.
