Let's forego the politics. I don't care whether Patagonia can be accused of right-wing, or left-wing or centrist leanings. I like their good gear ... not the Gucci stuff ... but the hard-use gear.
Their "web specials" are a good deal. Those items marked "-special" were made for the military. And are first rate. And they come in a color that a hunter/woodsman can like. Over the last few years, I've kept my eye on the web specials, and bought a few things.
But the "-special" items are really great.
Thus far, I've bought my wife a DAS Parka, myself a pair of Mixmaster Pants and a pair of Guide Pants.
The Mixmaster Pants are great winter utility/snow pants with a bonded R1 fleece lining .... excellent cut and fit .... fit over some layers.
The Guide Pants are utility/hard use pants .... 5 zip closed pockets .... tough material .... excellent cut and fit .... fit over some layers .... and REAL belt loops - big enough to take a 1.75" BDU web belt.
I like both pair and may buy more. And my wife loves her DAS Parka. Wish the Army had gear this good when I put in my time.
Take a look. Happy Trails.
