The instinct to protect beloved places has no ecological boundaries. Across North America wild lands—desert, rainforest, mountains—are under threat from privitization, development, extractive industries and overuse. Many areas, even those already designated as national monuments, face uncertain futures, yet across the continent the people who love these places are finding ways to respond.

We tried everything and came up with nothing.

The Micro Puff ™ Hoody Our lightest, most packable insulated jacket ever It took us nearly a decade to reimagine insulation, but we’re pretty happy with the result—a jacket as impressively warm, light and packable as down, but that stays warm even when wet. Through a unique combination of PlumaFill synthetic insulation and a patent-pending construction technique that prevents shifting, clumping and cold spots, we’ve combined the efficiencies of down with the versatility of synthetic to develop an insulation piece with the best warmth for its weight of anything we’ve ever created.

Key details — Unmatched warmth for its weight — Unique construction prevents shifting, clumping and cold spots — Feels like down — Stays warm and lofted when wet — Exceptional compressibility

NEW Micro Puff ™ Hoody The Micro Puff ™ Hoody was made for days when you need one jacket to do it all—for start-stop activities in cold climates, when space in your pack is crucial and temperature changes inevitable. Using strands of heat-trapping, ultrafine synthetic filaments, along with an innovative construction technique, we’ve combined the best qualities of down and synthetic insulation. You’ll never again have to ask the question: Which jacket should I pack? Imported.

ALPINE CLIMBING

NEW Pluma Jacket Protective construction in a lightweight, durable, packable GORE-TEX® Pro™ hard shell As reliable as a good climbing partner, this apex alpine shell was engineered to move and handles even the most unsavory conditions— think screaming barfies, spindrift and disorienting storms—pitch after pitch. The face fabric is 100% recycled, making it one of the first technical pieces in our line with this feature. Imported.

Key details — Durable, waterproof/ breathable, 3-layer 100% recycled nylon GORE-TEX® Pro face fabric — Adjustable helmetcompatible hood — Minimal seams, reinforced with seam tape, reduce bulk — Handwarmer pockets positioned above the harness line

Extended Play Forty-fi ve years of trying to lessen our environmental footprint has taught us that sometimes the simplest solution has the biggest impact. On average, people keep a piece of clothing for just three years, yet the materials and processes of making any new garment are hugely costly to the planet. The most effective way to reduce the environmental footprint of your clothes is to keep them in use longer (by you or someone else). In fact, wearing your gear out and fi xing it is one of the most radical things you can do. We make clothes that last. But if your Patagonia garment finally gives out, send it back to us. We’ll fix it at our repair facility (the largest of its kind in North America), or we’ll teach you how to fix it so that it stays in play for a long, long time. wornwear.com/repairs

Now lighter and more packable than ever, the PowSlayer Jacket is our pinnacle backcountry piece, providing the highest level of longwearing stormproof performance available.

Fair Trade Fleece Supporting the people behind the product In fall 2014, we introduced 10 Fair Trade Certified™ products. This season we have grown our Fair Trade collection to 480 products, which includes all of our Better Sweater ® styles. Every time you make a Fair Trade purchase, it sends more money back to factory workers who earn premiums that can be allocated as cash, used for a collective social investment or both. Since 2014, your purchases have added up to $900,000 in premiums. Next month (October) is Fair Trade month, and we’ll be launching a campaign to push premium payments over the million-dollar mark, and then some. Easy-wearing and bulk-free, all our Better Sweater ® styles thrive as urban outerwear or layered under a shell on the trail. They’re made of soft, knitted, heathered polyester fleece dyed with a low-impact process that reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Fabric is certified as bluesign® approved. Imported.

The Lowdown on Down For years, and for various reasons, we didn’t have down insulation in our line. It took a sustained effort to get it right, but it was well worth the effort. Today, we’re still looking for ways to let down’s naturally insulating abilities shine—from field-testing baffling construction to lab-testing shells and liner fabrics that are suitably downproof. We’re also increasing our use of 100% Recycled and Traceable Down, so we can continue to use this natural resource in a respectful way. Imported.

The Elwha River dams are gone, but there’s still work to be done. Through our Environmental Grants Program, we’ve supported the Coastal Watershed Institute—based in Port Angeles, Washington. Its projects include documenting and promoting the restoration of the Elwha’s nearshore environment. Learn more at coastalwatershedinstitute.org. Washington’s Elwha River flows free through the former Glines Canyon Dam site. The removal of the Elwha Dam, seven miles downstream, was completed in 2012; the 210-foot-tall Glines Canyon Dam followed in 2014. After the two obsolete dams were hauled down, wild salmon were able to reach their traditional habitat in the upper Elwha watershed for the first time in over a hundred years. Mark McInnis

Our designers started from scratch and questioned the accepted thinking behind what makes a pack fi t better for men and women. For example, most women’s backpacks have a sharper radius curve in the shoulder straps, which is the exact opposite of what makes a pack rest more comfortably across a woman’s sternum. And the torso length for men’s packs is traditionally taller—which never made much sense to shorter men and taller women. Gender-neutral features include durable construction and smart organization without unnecessary bells and whistles.

The Swellest Season

Around our stomping grounds in Southern California, the first few months of fall are pretty hard to beat. The water’s still warm, the hurricanes off Mexico are spinning out swell, and there’s always the chance that a forerunner west will have you screwing fins into your favorite step-up as the points come back to life. And if it still looks like the summer doldrums on your morning surf check, there’s always the solution that California surfers have turned to for decades—pack some boards and a week’s worth of clothes, gas up the truck and bust it down to Baja Sur.

“In a remote corner of Bears Ears, far from any cell tower, I left the manmade world and ran. The hard miles stripped away layers of anxiety and distraction, leaving me exposed and connected to this wilderness, now threatened. In ultrarunning there comes a moment when you must decide to put your head down and embrace the pain and difficulty, or quit. We are now at that moment in the political long run. Wild lands have a place in the future, and I can no longer stand idly by and hope that everything will turn out alright.” - Luke Nelson

Yulex® Natural Rubber Wetsuits Calling a product “natural” doesn’t always mean it’s better. It can be like snapping a lineup shot just as the one good set of the day rolls in—an intentional half-truth that makes something seem better than it actually is. That’s why we steered clear of natural hevea rubber for our wetsuits until last fall. Renewable rubber tapped from hevea trees performs just as well as conventional, nonrenewable neoprene, but the rubber industry is a major driver of deforestation in tropical countries around the world. Without knowing where the rubber was coming from, we weren’t willing to use it. But when we found a source that was Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certified by the Rainforest Alliance, it changed our thinking. We had a material that reduced CO2 emissions by approximately 80 percent compared to conventional neoprene, and it was audited by a third party to ensure that it came from a plantation that preserved biodiversity. Put simply, we knew it didn’t come from newly clear-cut rainforest. We’re now fully committed to using FSC-certified natural rubber, providing the highest performance while minimizing environmental harm. Along with our Yulex full and spring suits, we’re using it in our gloves and booties as well— giving us the world’s first head-to-toe, neoprene-free wetsuit line. Imported.
