Default What outdoor gear did you buy on boxing day?

I bought an Adidas Terrex NDOSHPERE Primaloft Hoodie for 100 dollars.

It's very warm, very soft, very quiet, and very light.

It's better than anything I've seen for Arc'teryx, Patagonia, and The North Face.

Enough said.

None. Why would you waste a peaceful day by going shopping?

I agree, unless you shop online.

I love shopping online, but never for clothes..

They never end up fitting right and I'm stuck with store credit.

I've never shopped for clothes online, unless I know the brand or have tried it on previously.

Though I didn't need to go shopping on Boxing Day this year as I received a new GPS with topo maps, siltarp, stove and bear-proof canister.
Also a new sleeping mat I havn't tried out that I received a few months ago.
Lucky Lucky.

I got a new sleeping pad (exped 7), new snow pants, gaiters for the kids, a new Icebreaker shirt, one of those Joe Fresh down jackets..

Should be good for a while!

Well, could do with better snow shoes.. LOL

I had a pretty unlucky Christmas and Boxing day. I didn't get any new stuff.

I only got to watch this guy stalking a grouse on Christmas day



Climbed this in the morning on Boxing Day



and then seen this at sunset on Boxing Day



My stuff accumulation suffered because of this though. Unlucky Unlucky.

I saw a really cool sunset on Boxing Day too, although I didn't get to go hiking or shopping.

I know you don't believe that shit. Memories trump stuff any day.

We did similar water based activities, except the water was not frozen

har har.

I would much have preferred climbing and being out of the city with that gorgeous sunset.
In due time I suppose.

I very much agree that memories trump stuff any day, but it's hard to ignore a very good deal for a nice jacket that has a MSRP of 300 dollars. I'm the type that hates paying more than 100 dollars for a nice jacket even though I own Arc'teryx, I think their stuff is overpriced, but I have to remember that they have lifetime warranty, and I have used their warranty.

On another note, while trying on the Adidas Terrex jacket, I had two different people who wanted to buy/try on my Columbia Sportswear jacket that I placed on the rack - I had to tell the two different people that it was my own personal jacket and the store doesn't sell Columbia Sportswear stuff.

I hate shopping, but we all need clothes such as jackets. My last outdoors shell hoody was a 80 dollars Columbia Sportswear jacket that I purchased four years ago that has a faulty zipper system but the shell still beads away water better than anything else I've owned and it's DWR coating free.

I am not a fan of DWR (durable water repellency) as my last Patagonia jacket made me sick from the DWR fumes. I refuse to buy ALL Patagonia products with DWR because their DWR is extremely toxic and they are aware of it.

You should eat more bacon. It would help you with that problem.

Everything has some kind of DWR on it.

Here is a clip from Columbia
