I've always supported the Patagonia product line. I have a pile fleece from the 80's, a vest from the 90's, a retro X from early 2000's, and a SST that has chased wild fish around the globe. I have thread bare capilene my wife's embarrassed of and boxer briefs she loves.  I've donated items to the recycling program and installed new zippers in pieces I can't live without. Heck, I purchased a pair of flats booties last week.  I can recall a memorable journey with each piece of Patagonia and consider them all critical to my life outdoors.
