Patagonia produce their wetsuits on four basic principals which ensure you’re purchasing a high quality product with a low impact on the earth’s resources.

Patagonia produce items of such high quality that with the right care and maintenance a product can last a lifetime. They support the reuse of recycle of their items through their Worn Wear program which repairs and resells used items. Read more here.
