I'm usually a guy that scours thrift stores for his flannel because I like that 'broken in' feel and I like to think that it reduces waste. However, after receiving a bit of a pay raise at work and seeing these on sale, I decided to splurge. If you'll excuse the hyperbole, that decision was one of the greatest fashion-related decisions of my life. This flannel was soft and cozy right out of the box, and each subsequent wash since has only made it softer (no, I don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets). It has a nice weight to it, being sturdy enough to handle hikes with quick bouldering detours, and thick enough to keep me warm for short spans in sub 50 degree weather. Fit-wise I'd say it's a little long, with the bottom of the shirt slightly poking out the bottom of my size-large Patagonia micropuff jacket, but I don't think it's too big of a deal. Additionally, with it being made by Patagonia, buying it supports one of the few objectively not-horrible apparel companies in the industry. Since buying this one, I've purchased another directly from Patagonia during their spring sale event and will keep my eye out for future discounts on these. They're definitely worth their normal price, but why pay full price when you can get it on sale, right?
