During a recent filming expedition to Alaska to film for the new travel TV show, Great Escapes, Patagonia was kind enough to provide me and my film crew with some amazing wet weather gear. Even though we were traveling to Alaska in the summer months, it was still very wet and rainy the majority of the time we were there.
I wanted to give a big shout out and thank you to Patagonia for the waterproof jackets they provided that kept both me and my crew dry during the whole trip!
Check out the gear we wore and reviewed! Patagonia provided us waterproof jackets for our trip but did not pay me or my crew any money for this review. I was really impressed with how the gear performed and would recommend any of these three jackets to anyone looking for new wet weather gear.

Their luggage also features interior compartments, built-in USB chargers, dirty laundry bags, 4 caster wheels and a lifetime warranty!

The development stretches along five miles of shoreline and includes an equestrian, yacht, and golf club as well as being scattered with retail shops, restaurants, private condos and homes, and my destination, the Inn at Bay Harbor.
