Rocky Mountain Featherbed was founded in Jackson Hole in Wyoming known as "the Cowboy State", U.S.A., in the late 1960s. The company created its iconic down vest with a seamless single-piece leather yoke for cowboys.
The idea of the yoke came from the leather capes that Native Americans were wearing. Its down vests became very famous for its cold-proof and heat-retaining features like those of feather beds. The founder of Rocky Mountain Featherbed is a pioneer of using GORE TEX® that was the most high-tech materials at that time. His outdoor knowledge learned at National Outdoor Leadership School and survival skills helped him to develop a GORE TEX® mountain parka with the leather yoke. It was thought that the brand would have been growing further, however, it ended up disappearing in the 1980s. 35 SUMMERS CO., LTD has succeeded in reproduction of the famous down vests in 2005 and even surpassed the original products after 20 years of research on the vintage Rocky Mountain Featherbed. Today, we produce unique luxury down products sustaining the solid value of the brand's original traditions, such as the yoke cut out of a single-piece of leather and the natural mouton collar, and adding contemporariness.
