Patagonia not only design and make exceptionally high quality and stylish outdoor clothing, they are also one of the most environmental sensitive outdoor apparel companies there is...
The Patagonia mission statement sums up their philosophy perfectly and we believe in it too:
“Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.”
We have stocked Patagonia products for several seasons now and they are a real customer favourite. Not only are the products technically excellent, they also offer an explosion of colour and unique designs that can be missing with outdoor gear.
The Autumn/Winter 2015 range has just landed in store and certainly continues the theme of good value, high environment standards, top quality styles and vibrant colours. We’ve picked out a few favourites below…
So warm and cosy that the Better Sweater is actually part of our staff uniform! The Better Sweater range is a classic in the Patagonia range and comes in a range of styles including a full zip jacket, a half-zip pullover and a vest. The style is relaxed which allows multiple layers to be worn underneath and the material is a super soft fleece lining with a hard wearing, pile resistant knitted outer that not only adds durability but also increases the wind resistance of the jacket.
We think Patagonia have really hit the perfect balance between outdoor practicality for your hill and dale walks and style for everyday wear about town with the Better Sweater range. This year we have extended the range of colours we are stocking so you have even more choice! Select yours here.
MENS NANO PUFF PULLOVER
Patagonia produce a great range of insulated jackets including the Nano-Air range and one of our favourites is the Nano Puff Pullover which is a great jacket with many uses. Filled with 60-g PrimaLoft Gold Insulation which offers a remarkable warmth to weight ratio, the Nano Puff also features windproof and water-resistant ripstop out material to provide excellent protection in cold conditions. The Nano Puff is highly compressible and packs down very small so is ideal for stashing in a pack in case the weather turns or for overnight camps when extra layers are needed.
The new Electron Blue colour is striking and will turn heads wherever you choose to wear the Nano Puff. Check out our full range of Patagonnia Jackets here.
PATAGONIA SHELLED SYNCHILLA DUCKBILL CAP
Patagonia really know how to make stylish, practical accessories. We love the Better Sweater Gloves which convert from fingerless gloves to mitts with the flip of a finger pocket. But with winter just around the corner, the head covering, ear warming Shelled Synchilla Duckbill Cap is a really great investment. The super soft fleece lining is really comfortable and warm against the head and the longer length over the ears ensures drafts are kept out! The wind and water resistant outer material is designed to protect you against the worst of the winter weather. Take a look at the full Patagonia accessory range here.
