Recycled Polyester: Patagonia uses recycled polyester lessens our dependence on virgin petroleum-based materials. An important fiber in Patagonia’s line, polyester allows us to build lightweight materials that dry quickly and can be used in a variety of applications, including trail-running tops and yoga tights. Polyester also blends well with natural fabrics, like cotton. Since recycled polyester has been available since the early 1990s, it is more widely available and is similarly priced to its virgin counterparts.
Odor-Control Additives: Odor-control additives block or prevent the growth of odor-causing microbes. Patagonia currently uses HeiQ Fresh durable odor control additive on select styles (e.g., baselayers and other next-to-skin applications). HeiQ Fresh is a silver-salt-based odor-control additive. While some silver-containing technologies can have adverse environmental impacts, we chose this technology because it is able to provide good performance with minimal environmental impact.
Men’s Tops and Jackets Sizing Information
Though each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
PATAGONIA COMPANY DESCRIPTION:
Patagonia Core Values: Our values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted.
Build the best product
Our criteria for the best product rests on function, reparability, and, foremost, durability. Among the most direct ways we can limit ecological impacts is with goods that last for generations or can be recycled so the materials in them remain in use. Making the best product matters for saving the planet.
Cause no unnecessary harm
We know that our business activity—from lighting stores to dyeing shirts—is part of the problem. We work steadily to change our business practices and share what we’ve learned. But we recognize that this is not enough. We seek not only to do less harm, but more good.
Use business to protect nature
The challenges we face as a society require leadership. Once we identify a problem, we act. We embrace risk and act to protect and restore the stability, integrity and beauty of the web of life.
Not bound by convention
Our success—and much of the fun—lies in developing new ways to do things
