What is now a global apparel and adventurewear brand, Patagonia came from very humble beginnings. A love of rock climbing led the brands founder to start creating climbing equipment in his parents backyard and by 1970 they were the largest climbing hardware supplier in the United States. The brand quickly expanded its range to include apparel and began incorporating unique materials like polar fleece to develop a range that covered all layers from underwear to outerwear. Fast forward to today and Patagonia's range has expanded to swimwear categories such as boardshorts and some of the best quality wetsuits on the market.
As a company founded on enjoying the outdoors, the brand dedicated themselves to helping the planet and committed to donating 10% of profits to small environmental groups. Later that was changed to 1% of all sales regardless of profit and they formed the 1% for the Planet group that allows other companies to join the cause. Beyond their outward efforts, the company also shifted focus on their own environmental footprint and was a leader in using recycled materials like plastic bottles to create recycled polyester for their fleece products.
Shifts to organic cotton and non-toxic dyes were big steps in improving the brands environmental impact, and a focus on fair trade manufacturing in their supply chain means that they are supporting living wages for everyone involved in the production of their goods. The brand's commitment to the planet culminated in the 2022 transfer of the company’s ownership to a specially designed trust, with the commitment to ensure all profits are used to combat climate change.
A trademark of the brand's product range, their Synchilla® (synthetic chinchilla) fleece is a light-weight fabric made from at least 80% recycled polyester. The material is warm and blocks out the elements while remaining breathable and comfortable.
The range of jackets, puffer jackets, vests and more from Patagonia are some of the best out there. Whether you're out hiking in the bush or just trekking down to your local coffee spot in winter, the Patagonia outerwear range has stylish and extremely functional options to suit both men and women.
