Happy Hump Day, friends! We’re halfway to the weekend… which these days feels even sweeter. Weekends mean a break from schoolwork, and the chance to get outside for longer stretches of time. This lockdown has us branching out and exploring areas in our metroplex that we once took for granted.
Our state parks reopened this week, and I can’t help but remember our trip to Big Bend a few years ago. If you’re a fan of National Parks, definitely add that one to your list (see our Big Bend Trip Report HERE). I only wish we lived closer and could make a weekend trip of it!
If you’re an outdoor enthusiast too, or maybe you just like cozy pullovers and classic Patagonia pieces, today’s post is for you! Backcountry is offering major sales with up to 70% off all their top brands, plus 20% off any full-price item with code 20FULLPRICE (some exclusions apply). And if you’re grabbing more than one full-priced item, use my code SUGARPLUM15 instead for 15% off of those (not stackable with 20FULLPRICE, exclusions apply)!
I’m a long-time fan of Backcountry, not just for their expert gearheads and incredible selection of premium outdoor products, but also as a compassionate company. They just launched a COVID-19 Mask Donation Program, which so far has donated 9,000 masks to the NYC Department of Homeless Services. Every $5 donation equals 1.5 masks for homeless and frontline workers from the city to the mountains.
They also created this cute tee, and 100% of the proceeds will be used for mask donations, too!
So many of our outdoor staples are on epic sales… including these pieces…
Trail Running Shoes (Up to 25% off!)
Obviously Patagonia pullovers are my weakness… here’s a breakdown of my favorite styles. I size up for a more relaxed fit, and wear a small.
Synchilla Lightweight Snap Fleece Pullover // Made of lightweight, double-faced fleece, it has elastic cuffs and hem to keep warmth in. It’s a great top layer over tees and thermals, and is the thinnest of the bunch.
Re-Tool Snap Fleece Pullover // Cozier and thicker than the others, it’s made of a Polartec Pro fleece for added warmth. It has a front pouch pocket and un-cuffed hem.
Organic Cotton Quilted Snap Pullover // Similar to your favorite sweatshirt, it’s made of the softest organic cotton.
Here’s a few more of my top picks from the sale, many of which we already own and love!
one // Sun Hat // Love these oversized hats for shielding your shoulders along with the face. Mr. SP wears this style, too!
two // Hoodie Sweatshirt // Mr. College Guy lives in hoodies, and he claims The North Face as one of the best.
three // Trekking Poles // Sturdy trekking poles come in handy for all kinds of hikes, from your local trails to the National Parks!
four // Backpack // This brand is all the rage for teens, and the perfect lightweight day pack for everything from picnics to hikes.
five // Tee // It’s hard to beat a classic Patagonia tee… every member of our family loves these.
six // Water Bottle // Mr. College Guy has had his Nalgene for years, and apparently the older and more banged up they get, the cooler they are. Who knew even water bottles could be trendy for teens?!
seven // Fleece Pullover // A favorite pullover style for all of us, every member of my family owns this in at least one color.
eight // Lantern // I put this compact lantern in the guys’ stockings this year, and it’s surprisingly bright and comes in handy more than you’d imagine! It’s perfect for hanging in a tent, or just working in the garage.
nine // Puffer Vest // Mr. SP lives in his quilted vest three seasons of the year. Great light weight, not bulky, and adds the perfect amount of warmth for a range of temperatures.
ten // Sneakers // My latest purchase, these trail sneakers are incredible for running and hiking on unpaved surfaces. The sole is super sturdy with great traction, yet they’re still lightweight and comfortable.
I’m definitely adding new colors of our favorite pullovers to my cart, and Mr. SP is checking out all the camping and biking sales. Summer vacations are likely to look a lot different this year, and we want to take advantage of the parks. How about you? Any outdoor faves you’ll be grabbing while they’re on sale?
