When we think about companies we admire, Patagonia sits squarely at the top of that list. There are so many reasons to love the 48-year-old outdoor gear brand: It has been dedicated to using only sustainable and eco-friendly methods since its inception, it will repair or recycle any products no matter how old, it speaks out about and takes stands on environmental legislation, it supports indigenous communities and this is all before we even get to the goods themselves. (Which, as you likely already know, are high-quality, wonderfully practical and surprisingly chic, too.) The brand sets a very high bar for comparison, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other brands like Patagonia for us to give just as much love.
Each of the brands on this list were chosen because they have both similar products and similar environmental goals. All 11 companies make clothing and other items to outfit adventurers of any kind (whether you’re camping in your backyard or trekking up Mount Rainier), though they differ in price and current levels of sustainability. But no matter what, you can rest assured that you’ll be getting something that will serve you and your beloved National Parks well, just like your beloved Patagonia fleece.
So without further ado, here are 11 brands like Patagonia if you’re looking for more sustainably-minded outdoor gear to shop.
