Got this for my wife and she said it fits perfectly and is very comfortable. Loves the pockets too. She can't wait to use its secret zipper when we are out hiking.

I have 7 patches from Camino Provides and they are always the best quality and the personal service is unmatched. I love these after I finish a Camino

Super love these! I have a really hard time finding leggings that look good on my booty so I was a little worried....but I didn't need to be because they look great!

Good quality cloth, stitching etc. Instructions which come with the product are a bit confusing as they say to open zipper front to back, but the site q&a says the opposite... It's definitely open back to front based on where the tag is sewn. Also pockets are very small, but I managed to squeeze my phone into them half way... Good enough.

I was unsure about the zipper being uncomfortable it’s not can’t even tell it’s there. Great product
The Camino Provides celebrates the pilgrim's journey, from the Calling to the Compostela, and beyond.
Patches are fun. Camino patches are a great way for you to customize your backpack with style.
This shop started because I wanted to design a patch for my own Caminos. They are different than any other Camino patch- there's no cross, sword or arrow. Just a simple stylized shell that reminds us to keep moving forward. There are two designs available: a rainbow with year, and original with no date. I intend to design a new patch for each year. Ultreia!
I caught Camino fever in 2015 and decided to document my journey and share things about the Camino on a blog at TheCaminoProvides.com. The phrase "The Camino Provides" is often heard as pilgrims hit a challenge of some sort on the Camino, then a solution magically appears.
We are all on a journey and everyone's Camino is their own. When the Camino called me, I answered. I've met some amazing people from all over the world; kindred spirits, who love adventure, hiking, camaraderie, and following their dreams.
In 2020, I added yoga pants with secret zipper to my Etsy shop. These pants were designed by my friend Cathy Seitchik Diaz, who wanted to help women hikers.
I hope these patches bring you many miles of smiles. 😊
Buen Camino! ❤️

I love to share a good thing. I also like to design accessories for those who have embraced the Camino de Santiago. The Camino Provides designs can be worn on the Camino, or anywhere on your journey. I look forward to seeing you rock those patches!

Frequently asked questions
How do I attach the patches to my backpack?
I recommend sewing them on to anything nylon to prevent item from melting. To sew, use a strong needle to get through the patch and backpack. Use black thread, if possible.
Or, hire an alterations person at a local dry cleaner to have the patches sewn on professionally. I have paid $3-5 per patch and it’s worth it to have the patches sewn on securely. The stitches are practically invisible and they have a variety of thread colors.
I had my patches sewn on denim jackets, hats, string bags, a fanny pack, and my Camino backpack. Support a local business or pay a grandma to sew the patches on.
If you live near Oakland, CA, I recommend May Cleaners located at 1924 Park Blvd.
Feel free to iron the patches on cotton fabrics!
See Ironing patch FAQ
How do I iron on the patches?
These patches have an iron-on backing, which can be used to attach them to cotton fabrics items, such as shirts, canvas bags, denim jeans or jackets.
1. Lay the base item on ironing board or a flat, heat-resistant surface.
2. Place the patch in the position you choose.
3. Heat up an iron.
4. Place a thin towel over the patch.
5. Position the heated iron over the towel and patch and press down.
6. Remove the iron and allow the patch to cool.
Can I order patches with previous years on them?
There are some patches available from previous years, but when they sell out, they’re gone forever. Order them while you’re thinking about it!
The original design has no date, and is a classic in its simplicity.
I have produced a limited number of patches with years printed since 2016.
What are the zipper crotch yoga pants?
In 2020, I added yoga pants with secret zipper to my Etsy shop. These black leggings are smooth, stretchy, high-waisted, with two side pockets, and a zipper at the crotch.
They are available in 5 sizes:
XS (US 2-4)
S (US 4-6)
M (US 6-8)
L (US 10-12)
XL (US 14-16)
These pants were designed by my friend Cathy Seitchik Diaz, who wanted to help women hikers. See tips on using them in product photos.
What does “The Camino Provides” mean?
I have found, and many pilgrims agree, the Camino provides anything that you could possibly need while on your pilgrimage. Whether you need solitude or friendship, water or wine, band-aids or backpacks, you can find it all on the Camino. First time pilgrims think they need to pack emergency items, but experienced pilgrims tell them “relax, the Camino will provide.” The phrase is about letting go, and going with the flow.
The Camino also provides life-changing transformations for many. Just take a look at what pilgrims have to say about what the Camino provided for them in the Pilgrim Stories section at TheCaminoProvides.com. If you’d like to contribute your story, email me. If I publish it, I’ll send you a free patch. Share the ❤️ !
Contact me for discounts on orders of 100 or more patches for retailers, groups, or charities.
What does the rainbow design represent?
Universal love, peace, pride, and playfulness.
The rainbow serves as a symbol of serenity, a feeling often evoked when looking at a rainbow. More significantly, rainbows are often seen after a rainstorm when the sun breaks through the clouds. A very powerful and important message, which ties in with the phrase, the Camino Provides.
The rainbow-banded Camino shell design was inspired by the concept of chakras, which was an important part of my journey with yoga and healing. “Chakras” refer to wheels of energy throughout the body.
Combined with the Camino shell design, the rainbow radiates healing, peace, and love, from root to crown.
Why do you have an Etsy shop?
I love the Camino and the creativity it sparks.
My mission is to celebrate the Camino de Santiago and the pilgrim’s journey, from the calling to Compostela and beyond. I do this by sharing informative tips on training, gear, and routes; by promoting Camino related events in the Bay Area; by interviewing pilgrims and sharing inspiring stories; and by curating content relevant to the Camino. Purchases on this Etsy shop help to defray the costs of hosting and managing the blog so that I can keep sharing the Camino love!
Net proceeds are donated to different charitable organizations.
Can I buy items in person?
Yes, if you attend a Bay Area Camino event or hike that I’ll be at, let me know in advance. I can bring you any of the patches or accessories available and you can save on shipping.
Check my website Events section to see upcoming Camino gatherings and hikes.
I usually have a few patches in my pocket, so just ask me if you see me on the Camino or anywhere else I may roam!
Will you offer T-Shirts again?
At some point, yes. Being a chapter coordinator has kept me very busy, so I had to put some things on hold.
I designed the T-Shirts for the Northern California Chapter of American Pilgrims on the Camino that is available at Etsy.com/shop/norcalcamino
