Llama Up for Your Next Adventure
Giving back to the community is very important. Unfortunately, not many companies develop their business plan around this. Cotopaxi's effort is truly admirable. Their mission statement is based on inspiring people to do good. The company funds nonprofit organizations that address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty. If the latter is not enough to convince you to gear up from Cotopaxi, try this: llama fiber. Their signature jacket is called “The Kusa Insulated Jacket” and it is made of llama wool. Native Andeans have used llama fleece in garments for centuries. Cotopaxi builds on this tradition and adds the modern look and feel to their jacket. Llama fiber keeps you warm for longer periods of time, does not compress or mat, insulates even when wet, does not shrink when washed and it is a natural wind blocker. Basically all you should look for on an adventure jacket, at a very reasonable price.
