Regular GP readers are well aware of how much we love Patagonia’s Nano Puff line. Constructed using the most thermally efficient synthetic insulation out there — 55 percent recycled 60g PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco — Nano Puffs are equal parts ultralight, travel-friendly and warm. Take along on any plane trip and you have both a comfy pillow and an extra layer any time temps drop. Discounts on this item are elusive, so there’s reason to be excited when REI starts selling them for as much as 50 percent off.
Alas, there’s that catch. In this case, it’s the fact that just one size and color (medium in a mustard shade they inexplicably call “textile green”) is that discounted. However, there’s a silver red lining: the “new adobe” colorway (shown above) is 30 percent off and available in medium, large and XL. That’s a damn good deal in its own right, if you don’t happen to be a medium mustard kinda guy. Note: there’s no direct link, but click around to find these two deals on the main Nano Puff page.
