Firstly, I want to clarify that I have not worked for Patagonia directly, but I used to work for a retail store that sold A LOT of Patagonia. Because of that we got A LOT of discounted Patagonia clothing and gear. Now that the disclaimer / clarification is aside...I love Patagonia's brand marketing, their eco-friendly movements, their lifetime repair program, and their resale website. I think the overall quality of the products is on par with other outdoor brands with similar pricing.
The second most common complaint we heard at our store was that the famous Nanopuff jackets tear easily if you run into something sharp (such as keys in your pocket). It is a fairly sensitive fabric for being an outdoor jacket, but they acknowledge that and offer free repairs for it.
The most common complaint was about sizing. Specifically women's sizing, usually in regards to Patagonia's bottoms. I will just put it simply: it's all over the place and the size chart is not very accurate. I think that trying any of their products, particularly bottoms, should be done in-person, in a store, before purchasing. If you have curves DEFINITELY try everything on before purchasing. I have a 25" waist and 36" hips and muscular thighs, and I have exactly one pair of pants from them and they're sweatpants because nothing else fits like an actual article of clothing.
