Since 1973, Patagonia has been designing and manufacturing clothing for skiing, snowboarding and other outdoor sports sourced from sustainable materials. Their mission statement is, “build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis”, and they’ve certainly lived up to that.
Today, Patagonia offers one of the widest lines of sustainable outdoor clothing and gear available. In order to protect the environment, Patagonia primarily uses recycled polyester and organic cotton in the production of their clothing. The vast majority of their products are Bluesign approved and utilise Fair Trade labour.
You’ll find a number of options available from Patagonia to keep you warm and comfortable while skiing, snowboarding or trekking. The Women's Down Sweater Jacket is a perennial, classic favourite for women, while the Patagonia Nano Air is as breathable as any insulation on the market
Need protection from the elements? Consider the Patagonia Powder Bowl Ski Pants or opt for the Snowshot Jacket for men. Their Women's range is as good as they come, the Womens Insulated Powder Bowl Jacket will protect you no matter the conditions.
Finally, make sure you have the right bag to carry all your gear. The Black Hole 90L duffel bag is enormous, but if that’s a bit too much, consider the Black Hole 60L duffel bag.
