There are a lot of serious problems in this world, but the solutions don’t always have to be serious.

Fair Trade: The First Step

By Rose Marcario, CEO   |   Oct 10, 2016 October 10, 2016

You may be familiar with the “Fair Trade Certified” symbol and its assurance that some of the money spent on a bag of coffee or bar of chocolate goes directly to its producers and stays in their community. Patagonia, in partnership with Fair Trade USA, now makes clothes… Read More

A Park on the Run

By Kt Miller   |   Mar 23, 2017 March 23, 2017

I woke in a daze and waddled, still in my sleeping bag, bottom unzipped, feet out, toward the camp kitchen to greet the team. The morning was brisk and we’d gone light on clothes to save weight. My hands snuck out to grasp a cup of hot coffee. Two bull… Read More

Extended Play

By Patagonia   |   Sep 7, 2017 September 7, 2017

Lasting Function and a Commitment to Repair In a landscape of disposable ski and snowboard fashion, fixing and keeping your snow gear in play is the most radical act we know. On average, most of us keep a piece of clothing for just three years, yet the materials and processes… Read More

Eight hours earlier, we were a canoe team without paddles. After a last-minute transport change, the Bad News Bears of outrigger racing had arrived at the start of the Moloka‘i Hoe having forgotten our most important equipment in another truck. It was a tense hour or so until… Read More

It All Adds Up to Nothing: Forging The Micro Puff

By Patagonia   |   Feb 27, 2018 February 27, 2018

At Patagonia, our best ideas come from being in the field. But sometimes simple problems inspire complex solutions. That’s been the case with the development of insulation. Down gets wet and loses its heat-trapping loft, and synthetics never quite achieve the same warmth, lightness or compressibility as down plumes. We’ve… Read More

Following Wolverines

By Steven Gnam   |   Nov 15, 2016 November 15, 2016

A thousand feet below my perch on the cliffs, I see movement on the glacier. I raise my telephoto lens and watch as an animal runs across the blue ice, jumping over crevasses. It doesn’t slow when the glacier gets steeper, it digs its claws in, climbs around the bergschrund… Read More
