Patagonia jackets and Patagonia clothing are some of the most sought after garments in the market. Founded In 1973 by Yvon Chouinard, the brand owe their existence to the experienced climbers encounters with vibrantly coloured rugby shirts on one of his many visits to Scotland. Favouring the garments for their sturdy construction, chunky collars and ability to protect the wearer from equipment abrasions, Yvon began sharing his discoveries with others in the community, trading clothing from around the world under the name Patagonia and soon after developing their own garments and equipment.
Famed for their bright hues, eco-concious practicality and technical real world usability, Patagonia have developed a vast selection of outdoor clothing, accessories and more. From waterpoof jackets such as the Patagonia Torrentshell jacket, to the insulating better sweater and recycled cotton P-6, Fitz Roy and Ridge Logo t-shirts, the brand not only consistently produce garments which stand the test of time but take multiple measures to ensure sustainability within the industry.
Making equipment suited to 'silent sports' such as hiking, fishing, climbing and skiing the brand continue to research new fabrics and materials to bolster their line expanding into everything from shorts, mid-layers and down filled coats to backpacks, fleeces and much more.
