Hi Amy, Just heard the Women's Stand Up Shorts will be back next January as part of the spring 2017 line. And, they'll fit better!

Hi Kristen, Our U.S. retail employees do receive the child care benefit or a subsidy to cover the cost of child care. Globally, child care laws and programs vary.

Great to see the Klamath dam removal project mentioned in this article receive final approval. Four dams coming down, 420 miles of salmon spawning habit coming back to life. http://ecowatch.com/2016/04/07/dam-removal-klamath-river/

Yes, we have a school-aged program as well (kinder-grade 3). The kids are picked up in the van and brought back to the office where they can have healthy snacks, do homework and play outside.
Stay tuned, EVB. We’ll hear from the dads as we get closer to the release of the book.

Due to technical difficulties, the petition has been moved to Change.org. http://chn.ge/1L7E00Z
Hi John, We differ from OIA on this and we’ve been consistent with our position in discussing the topic with OIA.

Hi Common Threads, Before you write off you jacket, let’s see if we can reinvigorate the DWR finish. Sometimes it’s just a matter of tumble drying the jacket on a warm setting. The dryer’s warmth helps renew the jacket’s durable water repellent (DWR) finish. Learn how here: http://www.patagonia.com/us/worn-wear-repairs/guides/24189 If that doesn’t work, it’s time to put on another coat of DWR finish. We recommend replenishing the DWR finish once per season, or more often if the garment receives frequent use and washing. Our favorites are Nikwax® and Granger's® products, though there are many good products on the market. This guide will walk you through each step of the process: http://www.patagonia.com/us/worn-wear-repairs/guides/24190 If you still have questions, please contact Patagonia Customer Service by phone, email or live chat on Patagonia.com and we’ll be happy to help you out. 1-800-638-6464 customer_service@patagonia.com
Hi Tommya, Thanks for the thoughtful comment and suggestion. We haven't discussed including a repair kit with our catalogs--the needle alone might be problematic--but we do offer a simple sewing kit on our website for a modest price. Best wishes and happy sewing. http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/expedition-sewing-kit?p=12000-0

Congratulations Kelly! 'The Tower' recently won best Mountain & Wilderness Literature - Non Fiction (The Jon Whyte Award) at the 2015 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, and the 2015 National Outdoor Book Award for Non-Fiction Outdoor Literature. Well deserved accolades, for sure.
Congratulations Barry! 'The Calling' just won the The Boardman Tasker Prize for mountain literature. “This is one of the finest mountaineering books to appear for many years and it is destined to become a classic of that genre.” http://www.boardmantasker.com 'The Calling' is the second title from Patagonia Books to win this prestigious award. Steve House’s book, 'Beyond the Mountain,' won in 2007.
Hi Austin, Please sign this petition and share it with your friends. Thank you. https://secure.wildsight.ca/jumbo
Sorry for the confusion, Ken. We used that photo because it was a good representation of their time together, but it is indeed from the Selkirks near Valhalla Mountain Touring where Jasmin works. If you feel strongly that using this photo is disingenuous I will try and find a more accurate though probably less illustrative replacement.
Hi TT, Good question. Granger's wash-in DWR product is C6 chemistry and bluesign approved so that's your best choice. Nikwax wash-in DWR product is not fluorinated but the complete ingredients are unknown, and it’s not bluesign approved, so less ideal in the context of this discussion.

Hi Sharon, Here are the answers to your questions. How would you care for your nano puff jacket? How would you wash it and with what? Wash it in a washing machine in warm water (104º F/40º C) using a mild detergent. Make sure you rinse the garment well to remove all of the detergent. Don’t use a fabric softener. Do you put it in a dryer to keep the DWR coating working? Tumble dry on a warm setting. The dryer’s warmth helps renew the jacket’s durable water repellent (DWR) finish, which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated when you’re in wet conditions. Do you respray after each wash? If water no longer beads up on your garment, it’s time to put on another coat of DWR finish. We recommend replenishing the DWR finish once per season, or more often if the garment receives frequent use and washing. Our favorites are Nikwax® and Granger's® products, though there are many good products on the market. Whatever you choose, be sure to use a spray-on for your Nano Puff Jacket. I hope this helps. You can refer to our online product care guide for more advice. http://www.patagonia.com/us/worn-wear-repair-guide

Thanks for the comment but let's not revert to name calling, please. Everyone's opinion is welcome here as long as it's on topic. Carry on.
Wish I had a simple answer for you, Tom. The best I can do is refer you to these posts for more information. http://www.thecleanestline.com/2015/06/tpp-one-global-business-says-no-thanks.html http://www.thecleanestline.com/2012/04/patagonia-clothing-made-where-how-why.html
