Patagonia arguably sits in pole position on the outdoor apparel podium. The brand’s humble beginnings involved hand-crafted pitons sold out of a car. In its current behemoth form, it has also developed a reputation for environmental activism. Prominent examples include a boycott of Outdoor Retailer in 2017 and a lawsuit against the government surrounding a proposed reduction of Utah’s National Monuments.
Despite the pivot toward other pursuits, apparel like jackets and vests remain the brand’s bread and butter. From now until August 22, Patagonia’s annual summer sale includes several standout sale items discounted down to 30% off. We’ve highlighted a few of our favorites, but check here to see everything in one place.
