Patagonia and Worn Wear

'There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!'

A Norwegian fisherman once told me this and if you are to be a proper adventurer, you really need great gear, Patagonia is a brilliant company ethos.


2012 was an adventurous year involving a few mountains; Snowdon, Ben Nevis and The Himalayas. Also spent a lot of time on location as a costume designer. I thought I'd invest in some proper gear, function over fashion; waterproof, windproof and warm. After hours of investigation, I came across a company who had great products and eco too.


Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia's founder started making climbing hard wear in the 60's, moving onto clothing in the 70's, bringing bright colours to the mountains. They are an ethical company only using organic cotton since 1996 and always looking for more eco fabrics for their ranges. The company funds environmental campaigns donating 10% of profits to groups educating and helping bring positive change to the world.

The best part is the will always mend damaged goods and have vans roaming America to fix up distressed garments, then and there! Your item will last forever.

When looking for your next investment piece of adventure wear check out Patagonia, dig deep to find your perfect piece. I quite fancy the Torrentshell poncho made from recycled nylon and packs into a small pouch, perfect for those intermittent showers.

Have fun on your next adventure, where are you going? Please comment below.
