Patagonia is one of our favourite brands for outdoor gear and cold water wetsuits. We love this company for their great quality, organic fabrics, recyclable fabrics and their focus on fair trade. Patagonia is very active in looking after the environment and aim to be as sustainable as possible. Their business book 'The Responsible Company' really challenged us in our outlook on being responsible with our actions. Visit Patagonia to view their high quality products and learn more about the company.
ROAR was lucky enough to be in New York the night Patagonia had their store opening and we decided to do a little write up on the event. With people lined up down the street and around the corner, we decided to skip the wait for a moment and have some famous NY pizza. We couldn't believe how many people were there to support the brand, it was great to see. Once we got back to the store and entered with no line up, it was awesome to see Chris Malloy there who is an ambassador for the brand, film maker and an amazing surfer. There was live music by Real Estate which provided a sweet vibe. They are an indie rock band from New Jersey if you want to check them out. The store looked great, with some fresh new surf influenced stock, such as hand planes, fins and a new range of wetsuits. They also had some sweet boards that looked super fun to ride. We spied a few goodies that are now on the wish list, maybe for christmas. We love this brand and it was a special treat to attend their store opening. Thanks Patagonia for a fun night in the city!
