Video of the Patagonia Ultralight Down Shirt

While there is a new video of the Patagonia Ultralight Down Shirt on patagonia.com, it's not yet up on YouTube and I don't have the technical skills to slice it from the Patagonia site.  So for now, you've got a video from the good folks at SteepPlanet.com that does show the general fit of the Ultralight (albeit with bizarre music and poor lighting).

Patagonia Winterfest: Kind of a let-down?

Well, the once-a-year sale on Patagonia winter gear is ending today and frankly, it was kind of a let-down. I know that for many who visit the Patagonia Community and who have commented here and/or contacted me personally, this is THE sale that gets gearheads geeked up.  But the let-down started with the 30% Off Sale and continued when the Winterfest blew into town with even less to offer than the 30% Off Sale. The company's had such great sales in the past; this one just didn't measure up.

Disappointing--and I only say that because I really like the stuff that Patagonia has been producing (was my blog devoted entirely to the company's products/sales/causes a subtle tip-off?).  I'm going to have to sniff out deals in other places and hopefully my sniffer is working well.  High on my list is the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket.  I'm going to be eBaying my Patagonia Down Jacket very soon here (anyone interested, btw?) for the versatility of the Down Sweater and I was hoping to snatch up a great deal on the Sweater.  I'm unable wait for the 2012 Winterfest as I have a trip coming up in April and the Sweater is going to be ideal under a good Rain Shadow (which I'm also hoping to find at a great price).
