Help Your Gear Last

Though it may seem counterintuitive, washing and drying your waterproof outerwear – and periodically reapplying durable water repellent (DWR) – will help to ensure it remains water and stain repellant for years to come. Patagonia wants to help you get the most out of your gear; here you'll find brief explanations and some guides to proper care.

Expedition Kit

In The Field Fixes

If you're on an adventure, miles from civilization, and you rip a hole in your gear you can't just whip out your sewing machine. For those unexpected situations, we've got your back with a special series of on-the-go fixes using Patagonia's Expedition Sewing Kit.

Buy Less, Repair More

During an extended backcountry trip or a faraway expedition, if your gear breaks, you make a repair. There are no other options. But back at home when something breaks, many people are in the habit of throwing it out. Fortunately, most Patagonia® gear can easily be fixed, so we've partnered with iFixit to show you, step-by-step, how to repair your Patagonia® clothing. A patch on your jacket or a gleaming new zipper not only gives you bragging rights, but completing the repair yourself extends the life of your gear.
