OR Winter Market 2009 — GJ Report #11

Products as seen by the Gear Junkie at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, January 22 – 24, 2009. . .

Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover — Pack and roll the Nano Puff Pullover and it squeezes to fit inside its own chest pocket. But unfurl the lightweight coat — it weighs about 9 ounces — and it provides wind- and water-resistance in a top that can be worn as an insulation layer or as outerwear. The shell and lining are made from recycled polyester, and the quilted coat is insulated with PrimaLoft. Elasticized cuffs and hem seal out wind and trap warmth. Available in a men’s (top image below) and women’s version in August for $150.
