Santa Cruz Patagonia Outlet
I got to go to a Patagonia Outlet store on my San José/Stanford trip. I was kind of scared it would be lame (like J.Crew Outlet stores), but it didn't disappoint. Finding my size was a little troublesome, but not too bad. There were lots of Large and X-Large sweatshirts and jackets, lots of Capilene (in larger sizes) and swimsuits. For $32.20 (with tax) I got two pairs of shorts and a t-shirt. I was so excited.
1) Supaaaah Awesome Shorts (XS). I don't know what these are called. They're running shorts made of this really comfortable and stretchy material. I squeezed into an XS because that's the only size they had. They seem to fit OK. My ass might be a little too big for these (Thanks, JT), but you'll see me pass you on a trail in these puppies.
These have two awesome zipped pockets to put a key, chapstick (and a snack for longer runs). I love pockets.
Yup, yup. I'm a goon.
2) Baggies Shorts (XS). You can get these here.
This pair of shorts had been on my wish list for a while. Seeing as nobody was going to get me $40.00 shorts (I know it's an outrageous price for shorts, but they have such good reviews) I decided to take the matters into my own hands. The pattern is wicked and I LLLLLLLOVE the pockets. I love them. I took these on the Sequoia backpacking trip and these didn't chafe, were perfect for going to the bathroom on the trail, and I had somewhere to put chapstick, my ID (in case I die) and snackies.
3) Patagonia Kids T-shirt (L).
