Patagonia Colors of the Rainbow

in buy it

I’ve been lusting after a Patagonia jacket like this since 2003, when Lisa sported it on Europe Semester. When we lived together, she let me borrow hers a few times and I never wanted to give it back. It’s splendidly warm, stylishly cute, a perfect mix of sporty… everything a girl wants in a jacket. (And Kevin, before you start making fun of my for having an entry like today’s Stuff White People Like, just let me enjoy the glory of this jacket, ok? I know I’m a stereotypical white girl and I don’t care.)

Anyhoo– say that I was thinking about getting a jacket like this to keep me warm on my cold morning bike rides. What color would you get?

Dear everyone,All of your thoughts pushed me over the edge and I went for it! Jonathan said green too...so I ordered that color but I won't lie that I'm a little nervous about my choice. My instinct was black or cream because they'd go with more. But, nervouseness aside I'm really anxious for cold weather to arrive so that I can try my new purchase out!

I'd say black - it goes with everything, like Lisa said, and it's always there for you, good old black.But of course green is my favorite color!! So if you got that one I might pull a you and to borrow it someday and never give it back!

You just became my favorite person in the world other than my wife! I saw this post without Lisa telling me about it and lost my mind. I love Patagonia. I would cloth myself from head to toe (including undies) in Patagonia if I could!! You rule for even considering and absolutely buy the green one!! You will love this fleece for the rest of your life.

You could wear the green like it was your job. Do it!

Chase would be so proud of you Les as he sees himself as a self appointed rep for Patagonia. Hard decision on the colors. Black goes with everything. I like the shade of green, but you may tire of it. All four are great colors. Oh, hair sticks to mine bad and it shows on black...something to consider :) Good luck! and I affirm your decision, you'll have it forever. Literally...forever. patagonia fleece has soul.

The green would be best for visibility. It is a really cute jacket. They are selling a very similar one to this at Costco for $26. Instead of fleece, it is a thick polyester. I tried it on and loved it.Any article of clothing you've been wanting for more than a year is definitely a good splurge.

i'm not a fan of fleece (they look like fleece...?), but if i were and i needed a warmer jacket like that, i would get green.
