Any insulated jacket you currently own probably has one of two fillings: classic down (taken from ducks and geese) or synthetics (think polyester). But you don’t have to choose between these two, there’s also the bison route.

The sustainably minded gearmakers at United by Blue have turned hairs from American bison, previously going to waste, into an innovative insulation called BisonShield. And right now, some of their best layers that feature the material are on super sale, as part of an End of Season Sale up to 60% off as well as an extra discount of 50% off the Clearance section when you use code BYEWINTER.

Before we get into the bison, be aware that all of the brand’s masks are included in the sale, and that includes filters you can insert into the fabric masks (something we all should be doing, if we’re not doubling up on masks). But back to the outerwear: our three favorite deals are on the Bison Ultralight Jacket, which is 50% off, as well as the Bison Puffer Vest and classic Bison Puffer Jacket, both of which are a little over 60% off when you use the aforementioned code.
