CONTENTS When Paddy Pallin started this business in 1930, he didn’t have much – just a love of the outdoors and a thirst for his next great adventure. Over his long life he enjoyed hundreds of these journeys with his family and his colleagues, and today that 80 year tradition of shared experience is still the heartbeat of our business. Nobody knows more about trekking and adventure travel than the team at Paddy Pallin. We don’t just talk the talk. We walk the walk. But that’s not all. We bash the boots, we punish the packs and we push the limits of every product we sell. Because it’s only through our experience that we can help make the most of your experience.

Finding reality takes more than a GPS. You can’t search it, friend it or follow it. You need to get out in the Territory and live it. Only then do you realise that life, with all its stories and experiences, is completely unscripted. The escarpments, rivers, four-wheel driving, canoeing, chopper rides, hiking trails – the list of experiences goes on when you’re in Australia’s Outback, the Northern Territory. The spectacular landscapes and natural attractions make it the perfect destination for the adventurer in you.

Whether you’re trekking in the mountains or backpacking around the world, you need to be smart about the clothes you pack. That’s why the Nomader Shorts from Patagonia are an intelligent choice for any outdoor adventurer. Quick drying, super stretchy and extremely durable, these shorts can be worn day after day with a minimum of fuss.

When you’re enjoying the outdoors, rain and perspiration can literally put a damper on things! That’s why it’s important to choose the right underlayer to keep you dry and comfortable – one that’s highly breathable and has the ability to wick moisture away from your skin.

Durable nylon, Spandex fabric with grid-like texture 243g 28-40 Forge Grey $99.95

P

You may be surprised to learn that synthetics such as polypropylene and polyester, not cotton, perform the best in damp and humid conditions. Lightweight synthetics absorb much less water than cotton, meaning they dry more quickly and wick moisture away more efficiently.

STRETCH WAVEFARER BOARD SHORT Comfortable, great looking and extremely durable, the classic Wavefarer from Patagonia are an awesome pair of board shorts. The stretch woven polyester fabric is incredibly lightweight and quick to dry, plus the forward seam at the crotch prevents any nasty chafing. The Wavefarer also feature a low-rise waistband that contours to the hip line, heavy-duty webbing in the lace-up for extra strength, and a self-draining side zip pocket with key loop.

TIPS

THE LOW-DOWN ON DOWN

When you think of Down, think warmth. Down is the layer of insulation found under the exterior feathers of birds, such as geese. It works by trapping small pockets of airbetween the fibres to provide a highly effective thermal barrier. Down is the insulation of choice for premium quality cold climate jackets and sleeping bags because of its amazing ability to keep you warm in freezing conditions. It’s also extremely lightweight and compactable, helping you to maximise space in your pack. In jackets and sleeping bags, Down is rated by loft – the higher the loft, the better the insulation.

ENVIRONMENTALHEARTBEAT Paddy Pallin’s original philosophy was a strong commitment to the environment. That commitment goes from strength to strength through a number of initiatives we support today. From seeking out sustainable products to the way we refit our stores, from financial support of environmental organisations to helping raise awareness among our staff and customers about conserving the native habitat of endangered species. Some garments within this catalogue have labels to indicate the environmental credentials of that particular product. The “bluesign® approved fabric” label stands for products that fully comply with the bluesign® standard and as such are environmentally friendly, post no health hazards, and conserve resources to the greatest possible extent. The Common Threads Recycling Program label indicates that customers can return this worn out garment to Patagonia to be recycled into new clothing.

RIVA EVENT

Our ‘Don’t Bag the Environment’ initiative encourages customers not to take a recyclable paper shopping bag with their purchase. Every time a bag is refused, we donate 20 cents to the nominated environmental cause. Furthermore, our Winter 2011 Handbook won the Environment and Sustainability Award from the Australian Catalogue Association. This Handbook is printed on PEFC certified paper by an environmentally accredited printer. See page 67.

Your choice of footwear can make or break a trip. Choose the right pair of boots and you won’t even notice them. Choose an ill-fitting pair and you’ll regret your decision every step of the way. There are many things to consider before purchasing a good pair of outdoor boots or shoes. Where will you be using them? What sort of terrain will you cover? Do you need extra support around the ankle or footbed? Whatever your choice, it’s essential that they fit perfectly and offer the comfort, support and durability you’ll need on all your travels. Discover how to keep your feet happy in Paddy’s Diaries at paddypallin.com.au
