Patagonia was founded in 1972 as a small company that made tools for climbers. Since then, it has grown into one of the most prominent companies in the outdoor apparel industry. Additionally, they have extended their production to include Patagonia Footwear. Patagonia is an eco-conscious company that provides both technical and fashionable items to customers for every occasion and season. During the winter, begin any outfit with one of Patagonia's base layers, such as the Men's Capilene 3 Crew. From there, layer on any of Patagonia's well-constructed, stylish vests and jackets. In the summer, keep cool and casual in any of Patagonia's dresses, tops, or shorts. They also began a swim line for both adults and children. This means your child can keep comfortable in Patagonia gear year-round.
