Patagonia’s reputation doesn’t need backing up. Its gear does that, proving itself on the sides of mountains and also in the middle of cities. Many of its most popular items — fleeces, jackets, bags and more — haven’t changed drastically over the years beyond adjustments to fabrics and materials that make them more lasting and more sustainable. They’ve become as iconic as the brand itself, and thanks to Backcountry’s Memorial Day sale, a ton of them are available for very approachable prices.
Patagonia Black Hole 70L Duffel
Consider this an investment, because Patagonia’s expedition-capable duffel will last longer than you could imagine, and if it does burst a zipper, the company will replace it for you, gratis. (Plus, if you pick up anything else from this sale you’ll need a good bag to haul it all in.)
Patagonia Nano Puff Insulated Jacket
We’ve covered this jacket enough that you should know how versatile it is. It’s one of the few insulators that doesn’t rotate to the back of the closet when summer comes.
Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket
If you prefer down over synthetic insulation, go for Patagonia’s Down Sweater.
Patagonia Retro Pile Pullover
Patagonia’s first fleeces were made of pile, but the fabric holds up today thanks to some material updates.
Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece
The Synchilla Snap-T might just be the ubiquitous Patagonia garment out there, thanks to a combo of casual coziness and technical warmth.
Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece
For a layer even less outdoorsy, try the Better Sweater.
Another classic item — this sale is full of them — Baggies look casual enough for everyday wear but dry quickly in case you take an unexpected dip.
Patagonia Torrentshell 3L Jacket
The Torrentshell was already Patagonia’s best-selling rain jacket, but the company went ahead and updated its waterproofing abilities anyway (without raising its price).
Patagonia Nine Trails 20L Backpack
The Nine Trails hiking pack doesn’t have as deep a history as the other items on this list, but it’s quickly earning its distinction in the archive.
