Patagonia’s revolutionary FullRange insulation is designed to keep you warm when it’s cold and keep you cool when you’re working hard, without having to constantly adjust your layers. First used in the Nano-Air series, this lightweight polyester insulation is engineered with four-way stretch, so it moves with your body and maintains its structure well. It’s also highly breathable which is what allows it to regulate your body temperature so efficiently over a range of stop-start activities.

Patagonia’s Environmentally Friendly Business Plan
Right from the start, Patagonia has been at the forefront of environmentally friendly production, and are still one of the only companies in the world that offer a completely transparent supply chain to anyone who cares to look.
It all started after the opening of the first Patagonia store; chemicals used in the farming of the cotton started to give the shop staff headaches, so they developed fleeces made from recycled plastic bottles and started to use exclusively organic cotton. As the time’s gone on, Patagonia have implemented a traceable down program, use responsibly sourced merino and Bluesign approved materials. The recycled materials they work with are even more impressive: cotton, nylon, polyester, down and wool, as well as making use of natural materials such as hemp and undyed cashmere.
Aswell as making use of the best possible materials and production methods, Patagonia also make sure everyone of their employees is treated fairly, from the shop floor to factories all over the world. They also donate a percentage of their yearly profits to environmental initiatives and community projects across the world.
