Better Than New

One of the most responsible things we can do as a company is to make high-quality stuff that lasts for years and can be repaired, so you don’t have to buy more of it. The Worn Wear® program celebrates the stories we wear and keeps your gear in action longer to take some of the pressure off the planet.

BLACK FRIDAY GEAR SWAPS

No longer wearing that jacket? Take a break from the consumer madness this Black Friday and drop by the Patagonia Worn Wear Swap. If you don’t find something you like, our friends from the sharing app Yerdle will be on hand to exchange your used Patagonia clothing for Yerdle credits. We’ll have free food, refreshments and music at each location.
