GooseFeet Gear was founded in early 2010 by Ben Smith, who was 20 years old at the time and in his 3rd year of college at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA.
The company started out with down socks as the primary product and quickly moved into other simple areas like waterproof over-booties and pillows. Ben started designing other products in late 2010 – mostly down pants, balaclavas, and vests. He used word of mouth to sell quite a few of these items.
Nearly a decade later, GooseFeet Gear has become a brand known throughout the outdoor community for supplying high-quality, ultra-light custom down gear. And what’s best? Every item that we make is hand-made in the USA, so you can feel good about the fact that your hard-earned money is helping to keep a small local business going.
