Patagonia's wonderful, yet unusual mission has captured the world's attention - and the love of the wild and beautiful places is what continues to inspire Patagonia to join the fight to save them - to help reverse the steep decline in our beautiful planets overall health.
Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing—as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, mountain biking and trail running. These are silent sports. None require an engine; rarely do they deliver the cheers of a crowd. In each, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection with nature.
