sale season.

tis the season, my friends, when all of my favorite outdoor brands have massive winter sales to clear out their inventory & get ready for summer. if you don't mind, i thought i would share a few products i personally have enjoyed. happy shopping (and sorry for tempting you!).

patagonia's twice-annual sale has started and goes until feb 19th. here are a few personal recommendations you can snag during the sale:
  • the women's nine trails shorts: i picked up a pair of these last summer and love them. i am not a big shorts-wearing girl but i found that these were a good length, didn't ride up, lightweight material, and flattering cut. plus mine are hot pink. come on!
  • the nouli tank: i don't have this, but i've had my eye on it for a while. what a fun cut, and cute stripes! would be great for yoga. 
  • the down sweater vest: i got this last week for my birthday. versitile, thin, warm.
  • i can't say enough about the patagonia better sweater. i've had mine since 2009, have inspired about 12 people to buy them/give as gifts, and wrote patagonia a love letter about this product. if you don't have one, get one. 
  • the nano puff jacket, pullover, and hoody: our department got the jackets as our holiday gift this year. it's thin, but a good layer to wear under a shell or jacket for cold days or ski adventures. fits under everything.
  • brett got the men's down sweater hoody last winter and raves about it all the time. it's incredibly lightweight but warm. good solo or under a shell. it's so light and warm that i've started wearing it to take the dog outside. 

ibex's winter sale also started this week.

i'm a newcomer to ibex, though it's a great local vermont company. their price point is a bit out of my budget, but the quality is incredible. i received my first ibex piece for christmas this year (the joys of a partner who works in the outdoor industry!), and i cannot say enough good things about it.
  • the carrie button up jacket: comfortable, stylish, warm, and currently available for a good price!
  •  the carrie vest  is slim-fitting, and would be good for work or play (on my wish list!).
