With the cooler nights and brisk days ahead, our top products right now are the Patagonia Organic Cotton Quilt Snap-T Pullover and merino wool socks. We can hardly keep them around. The Snap-T Pullover is a warm-but-not-heavy, fashionable piece for men and women alike.

Our merino wool socks from Smartwool, Darn Tough, and Point 6 are perfect for the chilly days and offer obvious performance benefits on the trail. However, we find that customers love the casual styles offered by those brands as well. With Christmas on the horizon, we’ll see those sock numbers only increase.
