Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of the business and it still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, paddling, biking and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd and reward comes in the form of fun, betterment and moments of connection between us and nature.
Patagonia believes that love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in saving them, and to help reverse the overall decline in environmental health of our planet. That’s why at countryside.co.uk we’ve championed the brand since day one as they donate their time, services and at least 1% of their sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups to help reverse the tide. Now with a significant proportion of their range being Fair Trade Certified too, there’s every reason to choose Patagonia for your next bit of outdoor kit. Happy Holidays!
