Top Picks from the Backcountry Big Brands Sale

November 15, 2019


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Backcountry and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and loved by yours truly.

When there’s a foot of snow on the ground in early November, it means two things. 1] Mother Nature is confused about what season it is and 2] I’ll be hibernating for the next five months. Welcome to the Midwest. Let’s say, hypothetically, that I do step out sometime within the next five months [I can’t lie, I’m a sucker for snowy days], I’m going to make sure I’m dressed the part! Whether Mother Nature has you crunching on Fall leaves or making snow angels, Backcountry has you covered with their Big Brands Sale, happening now!

If you’re new to shopping at Backcountry, you should know that they’re a premium retailer for top outdoors & lifestyle brands with everything from clothing to jackets to shoes to gear. They carry all of your favorite outdoor brands including but not limited to Patagonia, Prana, Mammut, Arc’teryx and more. The best news? During the Big Brands Sale [it goes until November 17th] they have pieces from these brands up to 30% off! If that doesn’t make you jump in your [waterproof, warm, fuzzy] boots I don’t know what will. Add in the fact that they offer free 2-day shipping over $50 and their customer service is out of this world – seriously, the best I’ve ever experienced, there is no reason why Backcountry shouldn’t be a go-to retailer when giving in to your daily online shopping habits. [PS if you haven’t shopped Backcountry before, they’re giving my readers a discount. Just use code YELLOW15 for 15% off your first purchase at Backcountry.com! (exclusions apply)]

Today I thought I would share my top finds that I picked up during the Backcountry Big Brands Sale [remember they have items for women, men, and kids] starting with this warm vest.

Patagonia Bivy Hooded Down Vest [size up if in between, wearing size small] // Prana Foundation Long-Sleeve Tunic [size up if in between, wearing size small] // similar jeans [dish Heritage Blue High Rise Skinny Jean] // Sorel Joan Of Arctic Wedge II Boot [TTS]

Some days the temps make it up into the 50s and we like to pretend it’s Spring and not wear a coat. That’s where this vest comes into play. The two-tone color, the patterned strings, the longer back, and the epic warmth make this vest the ultimate layering piece for those in-between days! Put it on over a simple long sleeve tee with a pair of jeans or leggings, and you’re ready to get your hike [or your brunch] on!

Patagonia Down With It Parka [size up if in between, wearing size small] // similar jeans [dish Heritage Blue High Rise Skinny Jean]

I truly believe that nothing beats the warmth, comfort, and quality of a Patagonia coat, and this one is no different! And not only does it feel great, it looks great too! I mean, can we talk about this emerald color?! The length is great for keeping more of your body covered [aka warm] and also great for keeping those longer cardigans tucked away under layers! Bring on the colder weather, because this girl is dressed the part!

Prana Diva Varsity Jacket [size up if in between, wearing size small] // similar jeans [dish Heritage Blue High Rise Skinny Jean] // Sorel Joan Of Arctic Wedge II Boot [TTS]

Sherpa is my weakness, so as soon as I saw that this bomber jacket was lined with sherpa, I immediately clicked add to cart. Extra warmth without the extra bulk is my kind of jacket, and I love the tone-on-tone herringbone design pattern that this one has! Calling this jacket a win for days where you want to add a layer and warmth, but not a lot of length!

Sorel Joan Of Arctic Wedge II Boot [TTS]

Finally, one of my all time favorites, these boots! Sorel is my go-to brand for cold-weather outdoor activities, whether that activity is getting from my car into the grocery store or sledding with my nieces and nephews. They keep your feet both warm and dry, and the wedge heel on this pair adds style while keeping comfort [yes, these are so comfortable].

What are you going to be stocking up on during the Big Brands Sale? It won’t last long, so get what’s on your list while you can!

For your Pinning pleasure…
