Patagonia started as a band of climbers and surfers: We want to stay out as long as we can doing what we love, no matter the weather. Our design approach to every product, from climbing shells to wetsuits to sportswear reflects this. Quality is impeccable and the guarantee lifelong. Our love of wild places demands that we help reverse the decline in the planet’s health. We use only organic cotton; most polyester is recycled and most products are recyclable. We give 1% of sales – $34 million to date – to support grassroots environmental groups.
