In celebration of 30th years in the making, Patagonia recreates the iconic "Snap-T" pullover in three new styles for an exclusive Fall/Winter 2015 capsule. The updated styles are crafted using materials like traceable down, recycled wool, recycled polyester and organic cotton -- all a testament to the brand's innovative yet conscious ethos.
Originally created in 1985, the "Snap-T" is a true icon and archetype for American outdoor clothing. Although the silhouette is unmistakable, a great deal of technical functionality went into the original style. Instead of using wool (the most popular material of the time), Patagonia patented Synchilla fleece, a lightweight improvement which became the standard for decades to come.
Although the "Snap-T" has seen countless updates since its introduction, the iconic piece remains "evolved but unchanged." The original feel and form still ring true today. We think about it like this: what other piece of clothing did you wear in grade school that still has staying power today?
The new Fall/Winter 2015 styles are available here with prices ranging from $149 to $199.
