I’m so excited to team up with Backcountry to share some of mine and Chris’s favorite outdoor wear. I’ve shopped at Backcountry for a few years and also buy gifts for Chris and Patagonia jackets for me from them. They have a great selection and even carry brands like Alo Yoga and Free People.
Right now they are running up to 30% OFF of brands: Patagonia, Arc’teryx, Flylow and Mammut. It’s a great time to buy Christmas gifts for everyone on your list. For the brands that aren’t on sale, you can use code BRITTANY15 for 15% OFF your first time purchase at Backcountry!
I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors. We were always camping, boating or hiking and these outdoor activities are definitely things I want Collins to grow up doing too. Backcountry is a great place to grab intense outdoor gear along with more trendy pieces that “all the cool kids are wearing”. I say that because I think I upgraded my Patagonia jackets every year to their latest and greatest because I truly love their fleece selection. Even if I’m just wearing it to lounge.
This year I wanted a full zip Patagonia jacket so I went with the Los Gatos fleece jacket. The color I have is called Light Balsamic. I usually stick with more neutral options but I really like this shade and think it’s great for the winter months. The jacket is part of the 30% OFF sale and is current’y marked down to under $100!!
I’ve layered a Free People long sleeve tee with the jacket and love the tunic length. I’m wearing XS and say it’s true to size. It’s also available in a few other colors but I think white is a good option to layer with other pieces. I’m also wearing leggings by Alo Yoga. I’ve always heard great things about this brand and have been impressed this the pair I have. I went with a size small, which is what I normally wear in leggings and say they are true to size.
As for my boots, I’ve always loved Sorel boots as they are a great option to keep your feet really warm! This pair is a little more stylish but still gives the support and comfort Sorel is known for. I sized up a half size because I knew I would wear thicker socks and would suggest the same if that’s your plan.
Below I am sharing a list of favorites that I love and a list of favorites that Chris loves. I hope you snag these jackets early and on sale!!
