Carry the Storm
The Aigis is said to have been an animal skin, shield, or breastplate worn by the greatest of the ancient Greek gods, Athena and Zeus.
It's name has several meanings - translated literally it means "violent windstorm" and the idea of "Zeus holding the aigis" may have been a story told to explain how "the sky carries the storm".
Our latest interpretation of this legendary icon is in the form of a resolute, three-layer waterproof shell - the Aigis Jacket. There was no better story we could think of that combined all the themes of the story we wanted to tell. We wanted something that speaks to the power of nature and the ultimate protection from this, a story that defines the longevity of expert craftsmanship and inspires the doing of great deeds.
