It's a common, but outdated misconception that ‘recycled’ means ‘reduced quality’. Today's recycled fabrics match the performance of those made with virgin materials and Patagonia has long made it their mission to make as much of their range of Patagonia clothing and equipment from recycled and recyclable materials. Patagonia’s recycled waterproof shells are also put through a vigorous series of tests to meet their stringent H2No performance standard so they never compromise on durability and performance.

As we head for the month of ‘April showers’ (although some parts of the UK have already had more than their fair share) check your kit for damage and repair first but if anything is properly worn out then make Patagonia your next outdoor gear of choice at – it’s a win for you and a little win for the planet we all love exploring.
