Who doesn’t love a good crewneck sweatshirt, especially one as soft and stylish as this? Men can choose from plenty of lovely colors. I like the taupe green — I also appreciate the modestly-sized branding and loose, casual cut. You can dress this up with a nice pair of slacks or down with some comfy pajama pants.

Made from an even mix of cotton and fleece, The North Face crew weighs just 10 ounces. The lady’s version also has a casual cut rather than a fitted one. Color options here are more limited, but holy cow is the Ponderosa Green nice-looking. If only it came in dude sizes.

Moving on to more technical layers, this is a really solid price for an outstanding cold-weather jacket that can be worn as either a mid-layer or a main. The 60 grams of synthetic down should keep you nice and toasty. Plus, it’s water and wind-resistant and packs away into one of the zippered pockets for easy storage. By the way, I’d go with the Brandy/Brown for this one.

If you prefer to go hoodless, we've also got you covered with three colors and plenty of sizes to choose from. This sort of hoodless lightweight synthetic puffer has been a staple in my snowboard kit for years. I wear it under my main jacket and it keeps me nice and toasty without adding much weight. Best of all, there's no hood to catch the wind and slow me down.

The women’s version offers all the same bells and whistles as the men’s. With plenty of sizes to choose from, the color options are, again limited. But like last time, they are solid — I’m really loving the Misty Sage. On the subject, who gets to name these? I want that job. 

Looking for more deals on outerwear? Great news, we’re seeing plenty of them ahead of Black Friday this year. Patagonia jackets are up to 50% off across the board, while one of my favorite Arc’teryx jackets is down to $155. You can also save 25% off this TG-tested Columbia jacket worn by my colleague, Sam while hiking the freakin' French Alps.
