Pyrenex are based in the heart of the Landes Region in France, its know for french goose and duck breeding. So you'll probably guess that these are quintessentially duck down. Pyrenex was in 1859 started by Abel Crabos, Pyrenex back then they were the main guys for the Raw Down material. Some time after he was joined by his son René Crabos. They forged values of commitment, confidence and solidarity, and in a spirit of generosity Marie Crabos, René's wife, created the first down jackets to protect prisoners from the cold during World War II. They still stand to the same principles to this day.
