Great Alternatives to Branded Patagonia Outerwear

As a company deeply committed to protecting the environment, Patagonia has limited the ways in which their products can be customized by third party decorators. In 2023, the Ventura-based outfitter released the following guidelines for customization:

  • Only a curated selection of Patagonia products are able to be customized, not their entire line.
  • The inly customization method allowed on Patagonia products is embroidery.
  • Patagonia must approve all projects involving customization. can help you through this process from beginning to end. But if you are looking for a faster production time, or more robust selection of items, we offer many other brands in the same space— all of which make excellent jackets, vests, raingear and more!

These brands all make great equipment that stands up to Patagonia’s any day of the week in terms of quality, style and durability
