The most recognized outwear company is equally a brand and a fearless activist.
We love Patagonia. So we are excited to become a part its family as the official drop off place for your Patagonia clothes to repurpose or recycle. Their founding father, Yvon Chouinard, who is also a surfer, mountain climber, fisherman and environmentalist (and a surprising humble guy), urges us to buy only clothes we really need and wear them as long as we can. Patagonia is also leading the research for new, sustainable and high performance active gear that lasts for life. And when your favourite gear does tear eventually, Patagonia’s Worn Wear program will fix it. They support the 1% for the Planet program that gives a cut of their annual profit to grass root groups, engage in environmental campaigns and actively fight for saving national parks and reserves.
Indestructible thermos that fits every adventure and has a silver lining - lifetime guarantee.
When inventor William Stanley Jr. fused vacuum insulation and the strength of steel in one portable bottle, he had no idea that he forever changed the way we consume hot drinks on the go. In 1913, he invented the thermos bottle that we fill with coffee or tea and bring with us to work or road trips ever since. In 2006 Stanley introduced eCycle® (a mix of recycled plastics containing 25% of post consumer recycled material) being the first company using recycled plastics to make food-safe and reusable bottles and containers.
LOOKING FOR WILD
Looking For Wild is a modern French brand of contemporary technical climbing apparel.
Going for one big goal for the best result – that is the philosophy in the LFW team. This young innovative company based in Lyon, France, focused primarily on one type of product in order to make it as good as possible.

The pants are tested heavily in the mountains all around the world by high-level climbers, so their evolution is still in progress. As outdoor lovers, LFW does its best to reduce the carbon footprint by choosing ecological suppliers and local industrial facilities. And what we especially like about LWF, is their sewing program. Torn pants get repaired, so you can enjoy their 5-star comfort for as long as possible. That is why we have partnered these wild French guys.
