Outside Magazine Gear of the Year: Patagonia Returns

I've been reading Outside Magazine for a while now and it seems like Patagonia was a fixture in its Gear of the Year issues. Last year though, I noticed that the number of Patagonia products featured in Outside's Winter Buyer's Guide issue was thin.

Well I just received the most recent Winter Buyer's Guide and it seems that Patagonia is back in full force in this issue with no fewer than six products featured. Case in point, the Patagonia Reconnaissance Jacket pictured above. This jacket won Gear of the Year and a number of other items were featured in the magazine, including the new Patagonia Elmer Waterproof Boot ($155).

I love the expansion of the product line as well as some of the classics like the Synchilla Snap-T Pullover. Looks like winter is off to a great start at Patagonia.
