Patagonia is one outdoor gear brand that needs no introduction. (Though it is worth mentioning that it's been around for half a century, ever since founder Yvon Chouinard decided to start making climbing gear for himself and his friends.) Every year, as the company gets ready to unveil a new season of jackets, fleeces, backpacks and more, it quietly discounts a significant portion of its existing offerings by 50 percent.
From there, it's a webshop free-for-all, with desirable sizes and colors disappearing from digital shelves in moments. That sale is happening right now, and while it's nearing slim-pickings territory, there's still plenty of high-quality gear to go around. Some of our favorites, still available in at least some colors and sizes, are below.
