Since I've been referenced in some of the comments, I guess it's incumbent that I weigh in a bit. I researched and wrote the book "GERRY: TO LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS" back in 2008 and with an update in 2011 after Gerry Cunningham passed away. As the researcher and writer of the GERRY book, my chief sources were Gerry himself, his daughter, and one of his sons (Pete). I also had much input from other of Gerry's peers in the Boulder, Colorado, area where he lived and worked, up until he got absorbed… Full review
Gerry is a well-known brand that has been making outdoor clothing for more than seven decades. This jacket is well made and is being sold at a very good price.

34 years ago I purchased this product at Paragon Sports in Manhattan. It has survived a four-month camping trip traveling across the entire US, two trips through Europe and two teenage boys and their camping trips.

I bought my Gerry Down sleeping bag at the Mountain Shop in San Francisco in 1969, and it still has plenty of loft after 35 years of use! Used in temperatures from 4F up to 100 F (in Death Valley). Didn't know they still made them! Full review
Purchased this bag through an offer that Gerry was giving when you purchased a down vest/jacket from them. This was some 50th anniversary deal. Anyway, the bag is quite nice for only $125.00 (+ the $60 for the down vest). The shell and liner are silky smooth nylon taffeta and gerry uses chevron shaped baffles on the top side to keep the down from shifting. I don't know if this offer is still going, but if it is, this is a well built bag. Full review
Gerry Cunningham founded Gerry Mountaineering Equipment Company in 1946 in New York state, before moving it to Colorado. It later became a division of Outdoor Sports Industries and then of Amerex Group Inc.
In 2010, the Gerry brand was bought and re-launched by Studio Ray. Gerry Outdoors products are now sold at several retailers.
