    Nope. I prefer to support companies that aren't trying to destroy this country.

    I only own the Patagonia gear the Army issued to me. Technically it's a shame they ever got a military contract.

    Technically, I don't own that, because I'm supposed to turn it in when I leave.

    I don't own any of their clothing and I certainly won't in the future after seeing that.

    It's pretty pathetic when folks can't serve coffee, sell clothes, or play football without thinking they need to tell me how I should think and condemning me when I don't agree with them.

    I'm holding off until the election, then I'm going to fill a swimming pool with all their tears.

    I worked in a high end backpacking store for ten years, and got some Patagonia stuff free, or at 25% below wholesale ...it was great stuff. I still have a lot of it, 20yrs later.
    Originally, there was chouinard, and Black dia mind, there was some kind of antitrust thing that forced divestment.
    My favorite Chouinard story had the old guy hiking a trail, and he encounters a guy all decked out in Patagonia mountain parka and shell pants, and Chouinard tells him "you don't need all that stuff..."

    Nothing to do with anti-trust. Everything to do with hardware liability and a sinking ship. Parent company Great Pacific Iron Works spun-off Patagonia (software) to save it from the legal morass (liability BS) swallowing Chouinard Equipment (hardware) and bankrupting GPIW. CE eventually emerged as Black Diamond Equipment Ltd. BD is owned by Clarus Corporation (NASDAQ: CLAR), which also owns Sierra Bullets.
