H2No® Performance Standard is Patagonia’s benchmark for waterproofness, breathability and durability, which ensures a high level of long-term performance backed by our Ironclad Guarantee.
H2No Performance Standard products undergo the most rigorous testing in the industry. In our “fab lab,” we use highly controlled tests to simulate actual-use. We test a fabric’s waterproofness by simulating light rain, prolonged rain and then forcing water through the fabric. We test breathability by measuring a fabric’s Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR). And we test durability by subjecting fabrics to a “Killer Wash,” our proprietary wet flex test that simulates years of use and abuse.
The H2No Performance Standard for waterproof shell garments is 20,000 MM before, and 10,000 MM after our Killer Wash test (per JIS L 1092 B).
We promote fair labor practices, safe working conditions and environmental responsibility throughout the Patagonia supply chain.
