Over the years of my outdoor adrenaline seeking soul, I have learned that it truly is worth spending the cash on the good brands for outdoor clothing. The higher end brands ie; Patagonia, Arcteryx, Prana, Smartwool and many more know what they be doing! From durability, to practicality, to functionality, to style…inality. It is worth the cost!
We as adults, can justify spending the extra dough that we don’t necessarily always have, because there is this idea of “I’ll have it forever”. Am I right? Majority of the time, that article of clothing goes to hell and back with us. We put it through the ringer with what we are capable of doing as adults, and we don’t really “grow out of” it. On top of that, those brands voice a statement. A statement basically saying that you are an adventurous spirit.
Did I mention I am a mom? Yep, I have a little 6 year old sass-a-france running circles around me. Her sassiness is so much more tolerable when she is wearing her Patagonia Synchilla pullover. That’s it, that’s all you needed to know! That’s the secret to parenting!!! Actually, get your “Raising The Perfect Child…Through Guilt and Manipulation” book back out of the trash. That was not the secret.
