Patagonia is renowned for producing environmentally friendly & ethically conscious clothing & gear in the outdoor industry. Founded by a Californian climber, surfer and 'reluctant businessman' Yvon Chounaird in 1973, Patagonia has climbed through the surf and rock climbing industry to now lead the way in fly fishing, trail running, snowboarding and skiing. Patagonia calls these the 'silent sports' which require the wearer to totally immerse themselves in the environment, pushing forwards in pursuit of individual, soulful rewards.
There was a great Patagonia Review by Outdoor Gear Lab. We loved this comment - 'The Patagonia Nano Air Hoody, our Top Pick for Breathability, can handle high-octane action!'
At Find Your Feet, what we respect most is Patagonia's unwavering consideration for our natural, wild environments. In Tasmania, Patagonia are forging strong connections with community & charitable organisations to help preserve our pristine Tarkine Wilderness on the North-West Coast of Tasmania. Patagonia doesn't just feel responsible for producing ethical outdoor clothing & gear, but with their love of our wild and beautiful world comes with it an obligation to preserve its wilderness and beauty.
Patagonia donates time, energy and 1% of all sales to like-minded, grassroots environmental groups who are out there working to keep natural wonder in the world. In Tasmania this includes the Bob Brown Foundation.
