This time, I would like to introduce the history of RockyMountainFeatherbed (Rocky Mountain Feather Bed).
This is a story from the birth of the brand to the extinction and reprinting.
Birth of RockyMountainFeatherbed (Rocky Mountain Feather Bed)
RockymountainFeatherbed was born in the 1960s Jackson Hole in the northwestern Wioming, USA.
It is also known as one of the best ski resorts in the United States, and is a world -famous tourist destination, as it is the gateway to Yellowstone National Park and Grand Titon National Park.
Wyoming is located in mountainous areas in the western United States.
Also, as the brand name suggests, this area is an area where the Rocky Mountains span. The Rocky Mountains are very vast, and their distance is 4800 km in length, from the northernmost part of British Columbia, Canada to Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. The total length of Japan is about 3000 km, so it is a much longer mountain range.
About the founder
The founder is Cub SchafferMr. Mr.NOLS (Nationals (NASA) hosted by NASA in Wyoming
I graduated from Outdoor Leadership School). NOLS is a school that focuses on techniques in activities in mountainous areas, Astronauts are also famous for receiving this NOLS training. The training is in a stressed environment such as winter mountains, and as a dangers of the dangers of the luggage and the dangerous situation of the distress are approaching, the danger is approaching in a training that moves to the destination while changing the leader every day. It is a very hard thing to hone your judgment and leadership.

RockyMountainFeatherbed is the downwear that is considered from a unique point of view, combining these two outdoor elements (nylon and down) and hobbies (Western York and Leather).
This is Rocky Mountain.
From the leap of the brand to the disappearance
CUB Schaffer started manufacturing in the late 1960s, and will sell Downvest, which is still a standard today.
In 1974, we will promptly adopt the latest high -tech material GORE TEX® and expand the product development, such as making mountain parka.
At this time, we started selling to the world, and in Japan, we sold it to mountaineering sports shops, and in France at GLOBE, the predecessor shop of Anatomica, which is also available in our shop.
However, the brand disappeared in the late 1980s.
The Rocky Mountain has disappeared from the market.

Brand real name reprint
After that, RockymountainFeatherbed will be back again in 2005.
It was my previous workplace 35Summers that revived. Mr. Teramoto, the representative, began collecting Rocky Mountain in his twenties, and now owns more than 100 pieces, studying fabrics, attachments, and details with reference to the vast amount of materials, and reprinted his real name. At the same time, the trademark has also been acquired, so RockymountainFeatherbed has become a brand of the company.
As of 2020, it has been widely deployed not only in Japan but also in the birthplace of the United States and more than 10 countries around the world, making it a downwear brand recognized by the world. In addition, it has grown as a down brand, and not only conventional outerwear, but also ultra -light inner downs and various other items have been born.
This time, we have told you about the history and history of the Rocky Mountain Feather Bed.
