Do you know what it feels like walking into REI store a few hours before departure and finding a midweight Smartwool bottom layer in my size on clearance rack for $20? It turns out I snatched the last one in that SKU for the whole company! Boy, that felt like winning the lottery.
A factory in my town makes Underarmor and military underwear and cold weather gear. I have supplied everyone I know with fleece zip necks and trou and long sleeve crews from their outlet shop. Three bucks for a grid fleece top that Patagonia sells for millions of dollars. Nine dollars and a shell layer and hit the slopes. Olive drab is the new fashion statement.
