Organic cotton is produced using techniques that are healthy and safe for the environment and the people who work and live near the fields where it’s grown. Organic cotton is never grown with synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or defoliants, nor is it genetically modified in any way.
Patagonia seeks to build the best product and cause no unnecessary harm. That's their mission statement, and it takes many forms. As it applies to making products, they work hard to source materials and use processes that are less harmful to the Earth without compromising quality.
What Customers Are Saying
Good As It Gets - I am 6 ft tall and slender, athletic build. I originally purchased the large to get the lenth I wanted for the sleeves, but the shirt fit like a garbage bag. I returned it for a medium which fits better, but the sleeves are barely long enough, and the waist could still fit a little more snug. An improvement though. My body temp runs as hot as a polar bear, so its hard for me to wear long sleeve shirts. The fabric is light enough and breathes well which, for someone like me, is perfect!
