The Shield's sustainably luxurious components 

Insulation powerhouse. Eiderdown adapts to your body’s temperature - just like the ice-inhabiting ducks themselves. Olmsted Shields are filled with 100% precious Canadian eiderdown - sustainably harvested & collected from the nests - the warmest, rarest on earth.

The Wonder of Waxed Cotton:  Olmsted shields are made of premium waxed canvas weatherproofed the old-fashioned way. Naturally breathable, the wax outers adjust to ambient temperature to be softer/more breathable in warm weather and stiffer/more windproof in cold conditions.

A little Kinder- Upcycled Nylon: Olmsted's down-proof & water repellent re-nylon is made from a unique yarn comprising 100% recycled nylon. (which is essentially recycled fishnet plastic).

Swiss-Made Precision- Riri Zipper: Founded in 1936 in Mendrisio, Riri Zippers maintains its production in Switzerland and remains committed to a manufacturing process based on ethical and sustainable practices. The "Excellence in details" claim perfectly describes Riri's approach of always seeking beauty, innovation and quality, which also stands for "Sustainability in details." Meaning being aware of our responsibility towards the environment, people and society.

Handmade in Montreal: When we make just the right amount of pieces to satisfy demand, we're making sure we're only using the resources needed and not contributing to wasteful, over-production practices or excess inventory. No waste means treading much lighter.


Winter is an experience, and Olmsted Outerwear ensures it's exquisite. As you drape yourself in Olmsted's craftsmanship, remember that winter isn't about enduring the cold but celebrating it. 

With Olmsted, you don't just wear a coat; you embrace a winter narrative.
