A Journey of Innovation

Our new biodegradable Beacon Jacket may represent a fresh benchmark in circular design, but we’ve been on this journey a while, constantly adapting and feeding innovation into everything we do.

The original 2003 Finisterre Fleece

2003 - Our first product

We began almost two decades ago, with an innovative and durable waterproof fleece. So hardy we still see them around today.

2005 - Switching to recycled

We started using recycled fabrics for our jacket, leading to the development of our recycled Finisterre Engineered Insulation.

We began the process of eliminating fluorocarbon finishes from our waterproofs, and all our waterproof jackets are now fully FC Free.
