George Ingle Finch, (1888 - 1970) was a chemist and mountaineer and known for creating the first down jacket for a 1922 Mount Everest Expedition.  

"Is this your famous balloon jacket?"
Finch glowered at me.  It was obvious that he’d endured too much teasing about that particular article of clothing.  ”It’s the goose-down-filled outer jacket I devised for Everest,” he snapped.  ”Yes, it’s balloon fabric - the only material I could find that wouldn’t tear or rip and which could be easily sewn for the compartments of eiderdown.  It kept me warm at almost twenty-four thousand feet below the the North East Ridge.”
