Patagonia Return Policy Broken Down

Patagonia doesn’t have a defined return time frame. You can return products at any time, but items returned more than one year after the purchase will be refunded with a Patagonia merchandise credit.


Before the COVID-19 outbreak, Patagonia processed all returns within a week of receiving the items at the warehouse. Although the company kept the customer-centric approach during the pandemic and lockdowns, you can expect delays because of the new safety protocols. It might take up to three weeks to process your return or 19 weeks if you shipped the item for repair.

How Can I Return Products to Patagonia?

You can return unwanted or defective products via mail or to any Patagonia store. Returns are possible to authorized dealers but only for the items you purchased from them originally.

Patagonia Online Return Policy—Initiate a Return and Send the Product by Mail

To initiate a return online, you have to visit Patagonia’s Returns page. Once there, you can have the following options:

  1. Return with the order number
  2. Return without the order number

To begin the return process with the order number, all you have to do is:

  1. Click on I have my order number on the Returns page
  2. Enter your order number and email
  3. Select the item(s) you wish to return
  4. Print the $5 return shipping label, which includes tracking and insurance for your package

The $5 return shipping label will be deducted from your refund total. If you don’t have the order number, follow these steps:

  1. Print the return form
  2. Fill in the details (customer information, mailing address, purchase information, return reason)
  3. Pack the parcel, including the product, the return form, and proof of purchase

Once you’re done, send the package to:

For safety reasons, use a carrier that provides tracking and insurance.
