Ever wonder who created the first down jacket in the USA?

We had the pleasure of working with one of Leave No Trace's newest corporate partners, Eddie Bauer.  Established in 1920, Eddie Bauer offers premium-quality clothing, accessories and gear for men and women that complement today's modern outdoor lifestyle.  During our visit to the Seattle Headquarters, we spoke to employees about Leave No Trace as an organization, as well as the programs we offer.  We introduced the employees to the 7 principles and taught them ways to incorporate the principles into their personal outdoor adventures, as well as the "Get Outside" initiative offered to them as employees of Eddie Bauer.  Did you know that Eddie Bauer was actually a person and he patented the first quilted goose down jacket in North America in 1940?  He was an avid outdoorsman who's spirit and legacy lives on at Eddie Bauer.  We are so happy to have Eddie Bauer join the Leave No Trace community and we look forward to working with them again in the future!
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
