Our Story

Naataq Gear: Arctic Wear

We are excited to offer the Atmik jacket as our first product at Naataq Gear. My name is Alice and I am Inupiaq from Koyuk, a small community located in Northwest Alaska. I grew up using the traditional kuspuk, which is the inspiration behind the Atmik.

We have many words for this traditional Alaskan garment, Ugalqaq, Qaspeq, Atikluk. Today there are many variations, from traditional patterns to modern cowl neck designs. At Naataq Gear, we offer our own version, the ATMIK, a hard shell water resistant jacket. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting us here at Naataq Gear. Please visit us again. 

Sincerely,

Alice Bioff
