O’Neill: Jack O’Neill invent­ed the first wet­suit in the ear­ly 1960’s in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia. Born out of a desire to stay in the water longer, O’Neill sand­wiched a piece of foam between two sheets of plas­tic and stuffed it down his trunks, dis­cov­er­ing that at least part of him stayed warm. The rest is his­to­ry. Inno­vat­ing new prod­ucts for surf-wear for over 60 years, the icon­ic brand makes some killer duds too. Check out the col­lec­tion of jack­ets, pants, and more at mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.





Gura Gear: Gura Gear began with a con­ver­sa­tion between pho­tog­ra­phers on a Serengeti safari. After describ­ing their ulti­mate cam­era bag and scrib­bling down their ideas on a nap­kin, founder Andy Big­gs set about mak­ing a cam­era bag that was ver­sa­tile, com­fort­able, and rugged enough for any field con­di­tions. These are still the require­ments that inspire their entire line of bags and trav­el luggage.





Elec­tric Visu­al: Rock­ing since 2000 and sym­bol­ized by the icon­ic VOLT icon, Elec­tric Visu­al is known for their leg­endary sun­glass­es and gog­gles. Con­stant­ly dri­ven by feed­back from its ath­letes and the vital­i­ty of youth cul­ture, the brand pumps fash­ion-for­ward design with rock-star-wor­thy edge into each of its prod­ucts. Give a jolt to your vision with these sun­glass­es and goggles.





Gold­Coast Skate­boards: Gold­Coast Skate­boards are built for fun. Using cold-pressed North Amer­i­can maple or bam­boo, they spe­cial­ize in long boards, tran­si­tion boards, or cruis­ers. Skate­board­ing isn’t all about big airs and bro­ken bones. It’s about fun. With these boards and trucks, you can let the good times roll.






Beach Clas­sics: Just as the inside of a conch shell makes the per­pet­u­al sound of the sea, there are cer­tain styles that are time­less on the beach. Step into this col­lec­tion of board shorts, biki­nis, tees, and more.




The Rare Bite of an Orca: Did you know?

On Sep­tem­ber 9th (that’s today!), 1972, Hans Kretschmer felt a bump against his leg. He was surf­ing the break at Point Sur on the Cal­i­for­nia coast. Maybe it’s one of the seals I saw frol­ick­ing in the waves, he thought. But no, Hans turned around just in time to see a 20ft.-long Killer Whale chomp into his leg. Hans described the bite as “tremen­dous pres­sure.” It lac­er­at­ed his left thigh to the bone. Trail­ing blood, he body­surfed to shore and was dri­ven to the hos­pi­tal. A sur­geon laced 100 stitch­es into his thigh. The sur­gi­cal pre­ci­sion of the bite con­firmed Hans’ descrip­tion, mak­ing him the only per­son to ever be attacked by a killer whale in the wild.

Patag­o­nia alpine ambas­sador and author, Steve House, had a lot of time to think about his life, his achieve­ments, and his regrets as he lay on a ridge on the north face of Mount Tem­ple. He’d just fall­en 80 feet, break­ing his ribs in 20 places and his pelvis twice. Res­cue was two hours away, and as his chest cav­i­ty filled with blood, his mind filled with all he’d done and still want­ed to do – at the top of that list was con­tribut­ing more to his community.

That was almost two years ago and from that life assess­ment, Alpine Men­tors was born. Alpine Men­tors helps to train the next gen­er­a­tion of alpin­ists by part­ner­ing them with expe­ri­enced climbers. The men­tors coach and encour­age the young climbers so that one day they can ascend the world’s great­est moun­tains in a light­weight, low-impact style.

We felt com­pelled to help spread the word about such an inspir­ing orga­ni­za­tion. If you know of a young alpin­ist who would ben­e­fit from their efforts, Alpine Men­tors is accept­ing appli­ca­tions until April 1st. Click here for more information.

Pro­grams like Alpine Men­tors is just one of many rea­sons we’re proud to fea­ture Patag­o­nia on The Clymb. Today we’re offer­ing their high-qual­i­ty footwear for men and women includ­ing select styles in casu­al shoes to win­ter boots.

What do you get when two snow-sport obsessed, for­ward-think­ing design­ers com­bine tal­ents? ISAORA: A line of out­er­wear and appar­el that’s as much about enhanc­ing per­for­mance as it is style and fit. The name ISAORA was inspired by the Castel­lano expres­sion, “Aho­ra Si!” – Loose­ly trans­lat­ed to mean, “Come on, let’s go!” or “The time is now!”

Each phrase can be apt­ly applied to the vision of founders/designers Marc Daniels and Ricky Hendry, who set out to make advanced men’s sports­wear that could with­stand action and the ele­ments, yet fit right in an urban environment.

Pho­to Cour­tesy of ISAORA

Inspired by every­thing from snowflakes to Shibui, ISAORA has been described as “stream­lined func­tion­al­i­ty with a punch of the unex­pect­ed.” In a week that has seen sev­er­al amaz­ing Clymb debuts, we’re excit­ed to wel­come ISAORA’s unique line of men’s outerwear.

Also, slip on the most pro­tec­tive, yet styl­ish, eye­wear on the mar­ket with Native. From Polar­ized, Polar­ized Reflex, and Low Light, you’re guar­an­teed to find a pair that’s right for you.

Remem­ber: You can still ship unlim­it­ed items for $4.98 and adding a Clymb tee means your entire ships for free!
