There's a certain mystique about Patagonia. This company from Ventura, California, makes men's, women's, kids' and infants & toddlers' outdoor clothing, plus has tales to tell. From its founding story and impressive environmentalism to its hard-working, stylish outdoor clothing, footwear, daypacks and bags, Patagonia seems to do it all. Itâs like the popular kid has a great heart, too.
It all began when Yvon Chouinard started the company in the early '70s. He learned how to rock climb as a teenage falconry club member and eventually began making and selling climbing equipment. Today, Patagonia makes clothing, footwear, daypacks and bags to match skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and more outdoor fitness adventures.
One of the nice things about Patagonia products is their versatility. Often what works on your next hiking adventure also fits in around town, including women's jackets, women's shirts, women's pants and even skirts and dresses.
Patagonia's recycling program adds to their green cred. Many of their products, including a substantial number of Patagonia men's jackets, men's shirts, men's underwear and men's pants, can be recycled through the company's Common Threads Initiative.
Patagonia even has waterproof and always stylish options for menâs and womenâs sandals, hiking/backpacking boots, running shoes and casual footwear ready for all sorts of adventure.
Patagonia helps keep kids warm and dry, too. They offer rainwear and outerwear for boys and girls, plus skiwear and snowboard clothing that ups kidsâ comfort in the great outdoors. (Donât be jealous, moms and dads. Patagoniaâs clothing line is chock-full of menâs and womenâs all-weather clothing, too.)
And then thereâs Patagoniaâs lineup of daypacks and laptop bags. Designed with convenience and back support in mind, these luggage pieces will maximize your stash for daytrips to the office or trail.
At REI you'll find top-rated and top-selling clothing, footwear, daypacks and bags from Patagonia, plus plenty of sale & clearance deals and bargains.
