So, one of our close friends hipped us to Patagonia. Maks was complaining about how he goes through so many jackets because he uses them for everything – photography, casual wear, rainy wear. No matter how cozy the jacket is at first, it doesn’t last very long.
We picked up this nice jacket for Maks, but I wanted to talk more about the blue vest we picked up for Bear. Now we’re on a budget; I don’t like spending more money than I absolutely have to with the occasional splurge. But with Patagonia, I can’t help it. I’ve heard way too many good things about the brand to pass it up.
For one, they’re environmental activists, which I love. They care about the planet and the issue of climate change. They’re very conscious, and they constantly give back. Win-win for everyone.
Maks and I decided to up Bear’s warm wardrobe a bit. He already has a rain coat and a few hoodies but he can always have one more. We usually shop at Target or Wal-Mart for his needs (sometimes, Macy’s). We decided to splurge this once.
Bear decided on this down vest in blue. We loved how warm and cozy it is, but also stylish. We love a stylish Bear.
Let’s see what the inside looks like:
100% recyclable! Not sure how I could recycle this but I’m sure once Bear grows out of it, I can resell it. That’s recycling, right?
So again, this was a bit of a splurge but for the super cold weather across the country, I think it was worth the price.
What was your recent splurge?
