As anyone who’s watched Ray Mears Extreme Survival will know, you can’t mess about with the great outdoors. If you’re going to be stranded in an old ski-lodge for a week after a snow drift or stuck in the outback sans-map then the least you can do is have some decent kit. Luckily, the lads and lasses at Patagonia aren’t taking any chances, and offer some of the best outdoor kit this side of Bear Grylls’s hotel room.

Online right this second we’ve got some high-tech pac-a-macs, LGV-ready trucker-caps and fleeces galore.
