25% Off All Smartwool Clothing & Accessories

One of the best ways to take the edge off of winter is to get yourself set up with a good pair of thermally insulating base layers. We both own a variety of different Smartwool products and plan on picking up some more this winter! 

Smartwool quarter zip product image

Merino Thermal Base Layer Quarter-Zip

We love these thermal quarter zip tops for all types of cool weather activities. Basically, it can go from being as open as a polo shirt to as snug as a turtleneck just by adjusting the zipper.  Perfect for staying active this winter.

Just like the Smartwool top, these base layer bottoms are super comfy while providing a thin layer of warmth close to your legs.

This jacket has quickly become my go-to insulated jacket for around town and on shoulder-season hikes. It’s made with recycled materials and the synthetic PrimaLoft insulation makes it warm without any bulk.

REI 650 Down Jacket 2.0 product image

650 Down Jacket 2.0

Good, responsibly sourced down insulated jackets can be very pricey, but we think that REI’s 650 Down Jacket is the best bang for your buck (even when it’s not on sale!). It’s lightweight enough to be carried on backpacking trips, and we love that the shell fabric is made from recycled materials. I personally owned the earlier model of this jacket and it held up to many years of outdoor adventures.

Norseland Insulated Parka

This insulated parka is so warm and cozy! We’ve already had temperatures dipping into the teens this season and I’m so happy to have this in my closet. It’s long length means that my backside and thighs have some coverage, and the DWR coating helps it shed light rain and snow.

REI Powderbound Jacket 21 product image

Powderbound Insulated Jacket

Waterproof, windproof, and insulated, the REI Powderbound is a full-featured winter jacket that’s designed for the slopes. A comparable winter ski jacket can easily cost twice as much, so this is an incredible value.

We love these REI Pack Away Storage cubes! They have some structure to them so they stand upright, but are still soft sided for when you are really playing tetris in the trunk of the car. They’re great for clothing, camp kitchen gear, and bedding.

These are one of my (Megan) favorite pair of leggings! They are great for yoga, hiking, or daily wear and offer a high, wide waistband, have nice compression, and don’t ride up or down throughout the day. I have worn these several times per week for over a year and they still look great and have not started to sag or stretch out anywhere.

These pants are great for hikers who prefer to hike leggings but need fabric & construction that is a little more durable. The Flash Hybrid Tights offer 50 UPF protection along with quick drying, abrasion resistant fabric, and a wide, soft waistband that sits comfortably under a backpack waist belt. I personally haven’t found any pilling or snags in them after over a year of use, and love them for shoulder season and cooler summer morning hikes.
