This Wednesday night we are showcasing a collection of vintage Patagonia clothing which dates back to the company’s founding. Great Pacific Iron Works, short sleeve rugby shirts, original “original” stand up shorts. These items will eventually be on sale to benefit our good friend, the late Paul Marsh. Stop by the Cameron Village shop for the party on Wednesday night.

I highly suggest trying on a pair of the new Kuhl Revolvr and Ryder pants. For guys who like a slightly more fitted pair of outdoor pants, these feel great and still give you all the flexibility of a more loose fit. The long gusset in the crotch and the articulated knee make it very easy to do just about anything without having to feel like you’re swimming in pants.
The Uberkuhl fabric in the Revolvr is a mix of nylon woven in with an oxford cotton that gives the pants a vintage and hard look of an old pair of carhartts without the abrasiveness. It also allows moisture to pulled to the nylon for quick evaporation and a feeling of an ultralight pair of pants. It’s truly a set of pants that can make it from the office to the trail without worry. You’ll get hooked as soon as you try them on!

While I was packing for a west bound adventure there was another traveler with the same destination. A winter storm that would drop 3 feet of fresh powder in the Tahoe Basin and cap the temperature in the teens. With another trifecta of storms in line to drop an additional 4 to 5 feet my gear selection was of utmost importance. Insulation was at the top of the list. Well, actually tire chains were #1 but the Patagonia Down Sweater took a close 2nd.
I selected the Down Sweater because of it’s superior high-loft warmth. I have yet to see a more highly compressible jacket that is so light weight and takes up so little room in the pack. And it didn’t stay there long. I had it out first thing as we began our adventures at Donner Pass. With the wind picking up and the temperature at 10 degrees I was completely comfortable.
The Down Sweater is also equally adaptive indoors. Hoping to acclimatize quickly we found a local gym in Truckee that afforded us the use of a treadmill. After the 4 mile run indoors I put the Down Sweater back on to head back outside. I was impressed with the way it handled my core temperature with sweat-soaked baselayers amidst a wind that was relentless. While certainly no weather for a picnic Patagonia’s Down Sweater is the best choice for any winter outdoor adventure. And certainly would have improved dinner options for the Donner Party.
