Along with the REI Anniversary Sale, this has to be one of the most anticipated outdoor gear sales of the year.
I jumped on late last night as soon the notice came in and picked us up some Capilene, but soon after the website slowed to a crawl. It was clear that others were jumping on board to take advantage of the sale as well.
Today, their website is still having performance issues. But if you are patient you should be able to take advantage of this… I suspect some people will get frustrated and give up, which means the available stock might last longer than usual.
Here are some of the highlights that I noticed last night.
Nano Puff Pullover
Those who have it, love it. Along with its weight and packability one of things most often raved about is the Nano’s versatility. It can be used as an outer layer for spring and fall adventures, a camp jacket in the summer, and a mid layer in the winter. Seemingly, the perfect piece of outerwear.
Also available in full zip and hooded versions.
Patagonia Capilene – Performance Base Layer
Seriously, unless you have an underwear factory in your basement, chances are you can use a few more pieces of this stuff.
Patagonia Capilene is the Cadillac of performance base layers. Sure it costs a little more than other brands, but is totally worth it and now it is on sale! It comes in 4 “weights”. Capilene 1 through Capilene 4, with 1 being the lightest, and 4 the heaviest. This allows you to pick and choose based on the activities you are buying for. Skier? Winter Hiker? Pick an item from 3 or 4. Is it for someone who mostly enjoys summer activities? Go for 1 or 2.
It comes in 4 “weights”, R1 through R4, with 4 being the heaviest. The only thing preventing some people from owning several versions of this item is the price. So take advantage of the sale!
R2 jackets, an outstanding mid layer for winter and 3 season outer layer, is on sale for $104.30. That is a killer value.
R3 Hi-Loft is going for $125.30
