The premier outdoor company has been privately owned since 1973 and is still doing fine on its own. If you’ve owned some of Patagonia's famous pile jackets or its serious ski gear, then you know how well they're made. But if there is ever an instance where you need to get a piece fixed, you'll be taken care of. “We pay for repairs that we’re responsible for and charge a fair price for repairs due to normal wear and tear,” reads the brand's website. If a ski lift tore open your jacket during one of your trips, the brand can patch that back up no problem.
