Anything from Patagonia

I am the first to admit that I have a Patagonia problem. I can't get enough. It's an expensive habit but one softened by the company's lifetime guarantee. When you buy something at Patagonia, it's yours — in one form or another — for life. Patagonia gear is high quality in fit, style and performance — and is pretty darn green, to boot. Patagonia takes its responsibility to the environment seriously, which makes it easier to spend money with them. Nothing says "you're a totally rad dad" like a down sweater or sweet Merino 1/4 Zip sweater.
