Patagonia: With Ventura-based Patagonia, you get what you pay for.  What you pay is a lot.  What you get is exactly what you want.  Patagonia’s gear and clothing looks great, it works perfectly, and it is manufactured as ethically and sustainably as reasonably possible.  I do not yet own a Patagonia backpack.  But I do own a broad cross-section Patagonia clothing and gear, all of which may very well last me forever.

North Face: Alameda-based North Face makes pretty much everything an outdoors-enthusiast could want, including sleeping bags.  Judging by everything I’ve bought from North Face so far, their sleeping bags probably are very well made.
