When we heard our friends at Aspen-based Corbeaux Clothing were heading to Peru for their Join the Flight campaign–which donates clothing to local guides and porters in rural mountain communities—we knew we wanted to contribute.

Armed with plenty of AETHER jackets as well as other contributions, the Corbeaux crew ventured to South America (their first trip was to Ecuador last year) to give new and gently worn gear to the natives in an effort to keep them warm and dry while they work.

After giving the items to porters, mountain guides, and children in need, Corbeaux follows up with those who contributed to inform them about where their donations went and the good they did. Find out more about the campaign and get information on how to donate here, and check out photos of a porter’s union outfitted in AETHER Shelter Hoodies in Huaraz, Peru below.
