On Wednesday, October 22nd 2014 Canada lost a brave soldier. Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed in Ottawa, Ontario while guarding The National War Memorial. This broke the hearts of many Canadians but was especially shocking to the ones closest to him. Cpl. Nathan Cirillo left behind family and friends that cared deeply for him, one of which was our very own Cory Dunne. Cory and Nathan were both part of the Argyll and Sutherland highlanders of Canada. Cory had the honor of being Cpl. Nathan Cirillo’s section commander. Dunne was deeply hurt by the loss of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and shared stories and memories with all of us, who did not have the honor of meeting him. Cory was however given the honor of carrying Cpl. Nathan Cirillo’s casket back to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario.

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo will be laid to rest in a private service on Tuesday, October 28th.

The funeral service for Cirillo will begin at noon at Christ’s Church Cathedral on James St. N. in Hamilton, Ontario. A public visitation will be held at the Markey-Dermody Funeral Home in Hamilton on Monday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Our deepest condolences go out to the friends and family of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. He is and will forever be in the hearts of all of us here at Baffin. Rest in Peace brave soldier.

 

 

People often ponder, why Baffin? The answer is simple really. Baffin designs and manufactures top of the line, quality fashionable products. Not a product that you’ll use for one season and toss away but a product you will be able to rely on time and time again. Here is the story of just one of many happy customers.

“This is a wonderful story about a pair of Baffin boots my husband gave me for Christmas seventeen (17) … yes, that is 17 years ago.  They have served me so wonderfully well all these cold, snowy winters … but, he had to look for something that could replace those beautiful boots.  I have had warm, dry feet all these years.  I have had constant compliments on the styling of these boots.  But, I had to admit that the time had finally come when they showed signs of cracks.  Without necessarily looking for the Baffin name, my husband once again chose a Baffin boot because of the style, height of boot and removable liner … and the -40 C warmth.  While I am probably too old to ever wear out these new boots, I am sure that I will enjoy and appreciate them just as much.  I have already received a number of compliments on them and questions as to where we got them … it wasn’t really Santa .. it was Marks.”

Thank you … and keep making quality boots.

Barb received her first pair of Baffin boots 17 years ago and just this last winter decided it was time to retire them. She ended up moving onto a new Baffin boot, the Chloe! When reading the email Barb had sent we were pleased to hear that her husband for a second time, picked a Baffin boot, not for the logo but for the quality and sleek design of the boot. This goes to show that Baffin has been working hard to ensure that the quality of our products is always improving.

We believe so strongly in our products that we test them in extreme weather conditions to ensure all quality measures have been met. Paul Hubner, Baffin’s president trekked to the North Pole wearing Baffin products. When returning Hubner made suggestions for adjustments that would improve the boots design.

You might very well be asking yourself, why does Baffin go to such extreme measures? The answer is simple. The answer is you. We strive to provide the best quality products with the most innovative technology and sleek designs for our consumers. YOU are our motivation and the driving force behind the Baffin name.

Baffin will forever be improving, with new designs and new technology being thought of daily. One thing that will never change, is the driving force behind the Baffin name. We will always be manufacturing products with YOU in mind.

 

As mentioned earlier this month, we are thrilled to be launching our first ever ambassador program – WE ARE BAFFIN!

We Are Baffin is a program designed to connect today’s industry leaders with Baffin! Our goal is to make living a life outdoors comfortable, prepared, simple and fun – no matter what the passion is!

Baffin has currently partnered with individuals who are trailblazers within the outdoor industry. From World Record holders and photographers to group adventure travel leaders and scientists, Baffin connects with individuals from very diverse backgrounds and passions.

While we are constantly out in the field, testing our own products in real-world conditions, our ambassadors are out in the field as well, testing product and representing Baffin’s mission, which is to create exceptional performance gear that allows you to be fully engaged with your environment regardless of the elements!

Here’s an intro to our first ambassador below!

RAY HYLAND

ray highland - overland journal3

AGE: 42

HOMETOWN: Sunshine Valley BC, in the Cascade Mountains

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO GET OUTSIDE?  

The excitement of seeing new places and trying new things. The Feeling of accomplishment as I push my limits to achieve a new goal.

WHAT PAYS THE BILLS?

I am a Photojournalist and Director of Special Projects at Overland International, an international adventure travel media company, that allows me to explore wonderfully remote and scenic areas of the world.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT TO DATE?

My proudest accomplishment is leading the first international team searching for survivors of the 2004 Tsunami, in the jungles along the southern Thai coastline. I am also a member of the Explorers Club and I love the opportunity to connect and share with explorers from around the globe.

IF YOU COULD GO ON ANY ADVENTURE WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I’d like to explore and map out the ancient trails and roads that criss-cross the major mountain ranges and passes of the world.

FAVOURITE PIECE OF BAFFIN GEAR?

It’s hard to choose a single favorite, but if I had to narrow it down it would either be my Endurance boots or my Soft Shell Jacket and Pants.

IF YOU COULD ONLY LISTEN TO ONE MUSICIAN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WHO WOULD IT BE?

Benny Goodman!
