For FW 15, Patagonia will launch a new collection of Backcountry Touring apparel and packs.

From outerwear to backpacks to midlayers, the Backcountry Touring collection is finely tuned for self-supported travel into deep, wild places. As a part of this campaign, Patagonia will highlight its long-standing commitment to tireless grassroots environmentalists dedicated to alpine conservation. This collection balances critical protection with excellent breathability, and focuses on freedom of movement for a full-spectrum of backcountry disciplines.

The Snap-T Pullover is one of Patagonia’s iconic styles – a true classic with immediately recognizable features and a long, rich history dating back to 1983. Patagonia has tinkered with the style over the past 30 years, reinventing this favorite silhouette time and time again. Never content to just let it rest, for FW 15 the company will add to the Snap-T collection new colors, fabrics and prints, and bring back the Reversible Snap-T Glissade Pullover.

Knowing how conventional cotton is grown and denim is made, Patagonia is out to change the industry. In FW 15, the company is introducing an all new assortment of Men’s and Women’s Denim designed with all new fabrics and fits and a commitment to eco-friendlier textile innovations. Patagonia Denim uses only 100% organic cotton grown without polluting fertilizers, poisonous pesticides or herbicides. Patagonia has also partnered with Advanced Denim by Archroma on a radical, new eco-friendlier dyeing process that enables the company to dramatically reduce energy and water use, and produces less cotton waste and carbon dioxide. Fair Trade Certified for sewing, Patagonia Denim is the way denim should be made.
