For forty years Penfield has specialised in outdoors lifestyle garments that feature premium down insulation. Brand founder Harvey Gross noticed the need for the warmth and protection down insulation ensured in outdoor clothing and set up one of the few factories with the knowledge of the manufacturing process in the world and started Penfield Clothing. The initial outerwear collection innovation from Penfield saw quilted Nylon Rip-Stop fabric and their down insulation combined to give warmth and protection against the elements, especially in the varied New England climate where Penfield are based. Since 1979 saw Penfield Clothing take their outerwear to a global market they have expanded their range into not just apparel styles for men, women and kids but Penfield outdoor gear that includes headwear, gloves, scarves and even bags all of which has incorporated further quality fabric and material technologies for performance and function across a range of weather conditions.
