With this book, Patagonia is proud to introduce a popular Australian fishing writer whose arresting travelogue traces the history and plight of wild cutthroat in Yellowstone, while highlighting other great place to fish for trout.
We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection--It's just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.
