It’s no surprise that the gear company Yvon Chouinard founded largely to service a small group of rock climbers has permeated far beyond the Yosemite Valley. Patagonia makes enough iconic pieces — the Synchilla Snap-T fleece, Baggies shorts — that it’s easy to overlook some of its newer items. Like the dual-layered Re-Tool Snap-T or Capilene Air base layers, both of which trace a direct lineage to things Patagonia developed decades ago, but offer contemporary performance benefits. Thankfully, both new and classic pieces are available for 30 percent off in a massive sale at Backcountry.
Nano Puff Bivy Pullover
The Nano Puff jacket has become a staple in Patagonia’s line, but this anorak-style pullover keeps up with newer trends (without sacrificing anything that makes the original great).
Micro Puff Hooded Jacket
Similar to the Nano Puff, the Micro Puff uses a new type of insulation called PlumaFill that makes it both warmer and lighter; win-win. (Check different colors for the discount.)
Capilene Air Hoodie
Patagonia makes its Capilene Air base layers using a 3D knit construction similar to what Nike and Adidas use to make their top-line running shoes. In a garment, that translates to zero seams and more comfort.
Re-Tool Snap-T Fleece
It’s like Patagonia’s classic fleece pullover, but softer and with tastefully muted colors.
When it’s windy, but hiking or running plans have already been made, we reach for this over a rain jacket for a layer of lightweight warmth.
Black Hole 55L Duffel
The Black Hole Duffel is rugged enough to handle decades of abuse by baggage handlers. Still, the 55-liter version is expertly suited to carry-on travel.
The Gear Patrol Commuter, made in tandem with Priority Bicycles, was inspired by — and tested on — the streets of New York City. Streamlined for your everyday grind, it a pairs a durable, easy-to-maintain feature set with an understated colorway you won’t find anywhere else. Buy Now: $899 $799
