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.
Ripstop is a fabric weaving technique often used in the shells and linings of technical clothing. The fabric (most commonly Nylon or polyester) is woven in a crosshatch pattern of stronger fibres at intervals to stop the fabric from tearing, and stop further tearing if it does. Ripstop makes fabric is really strong and was first used to make military equipment such as parachutes, but is now commonly used in lightweight shell jackets and made from finer fibres in order to make garments soft and light while remaining super-tough.
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. They are constantly experimenting and developing new ways to bring us durable and sustainably produced clothing - recycled polyester, organic cotton, traceable down, responsibly sourced merino and undyed cashmere are all common materials in a Patagonia catalogue. As well as using the best materials and production methods for the planet, Patagonia also make sure every one of their employees is treated fairly, from the shop floor to factories all over the world. And they donate a percentage of their yearly profits to environmental initiatives and community projects across the world.

They will also repair damage due to wear and tear for a reasonable price, and have a section on their website that teaches you to repair your own clothing, so there is no need to unnecessarily buy new gear.
