DEAL: 31% off at $319

WHY WE LOVE IT: There aren’t many blankets out there of heirloom quality, but this one will stay in your family for years– on camping trips, autumn wagon rides, in the bleachers at football games or at the family cabin.

Each type of wool is selected for qualities that help create a water-resistant, soft, warm, and strong final product. The wool is dyed before it is spun and then air- and sun-dried to brighten the colors.  Imported. Dry clean.

Patagonia Men’s Capilene® 4 Expedition Weight Full-Zip

DEAL: The regular price is $119, it’s now 50% off at $60.00

WHY WE LOVE IT: Because our expedition-weight Patagonia Capilene items are the first things we pack for a backpacking trip. And a kayak paddle. And a snowshoe excursion. And they get a lot of wear on neighborhood walks, too.

SPECS: This full-zip top keeps your core temperature constant by dispersing moisture when you’re moving and trapping body heat when you’re stopped. Made of Capilene® 4 Expedition Weight fabric – the warmest in the Capilene family – it is soft, stretchy and compressible, and has a smooth jersey face that glides beneath layers and a brushed-fleece interior that warms, wicks, and feels smooth against the skin.

Patagonia Women’s 3/4 Sleeve Vitaliti Dress

DEAL: 50% off at $40

WHY WE LOVE IT: This is the perfect dress to squeeze into your pack for a backpacking trip through Europe, or a surfing vacation to Hawaii, or a birding trip to Mexico. If you’re traveling super light but need just one item of wrinkle-free “nice” clothing for a night out dancing or a fancy bistro lunch, this is a great dress to have on hand.

SPECS: The ultimate travel dress is made from a wrinkle-resistant blend of 55% organic cotton, 35% recycled polyester and 10% spandex that retains its charm in otherwise irritable conditions. Shirring detail enhances the flattering V-neck; center-front gathers cinch the waist. A self-fabric belt ties at side seams, providing adjustability. Front hip pockets. A-line hem falls above the knee.
