Patagonia Nano Puff: Essential for Crested Butte Summertime Adventures

July 6, 2014
In Crested Butte, Colorado, the weather can change drastically throughout the day. When you're fishing on the nearby waters, you'll want to bring a warmer layer for early-morning fishing that can be quite chilly, then discard the jacket for mid-afternoon weather that heats up to 70-80 degrees. Layer back up for cooler temperatures and occasional rain showers for late afternoon/early evening adventures. Having intimate knowledge of our local weather patterns, we here at Dragonfly Anglers make sure to stock up on our fall Patagonia products by the first of July, ensuring that visitors have ample selection for cool-weather gear, which is typically forgotten at this time of year.

A great product women will find essential is the Patagonia Nano Puff® Jacket ($199.00) or Pullover option ($169.00). This lightweight jacket is windproof and water-resistant and composed of the PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation, making it perfect for summertime chilly mornings and evenings. This piece is also compressable into its own pocket, so you can always have it with you. Stop by Dragonfly Anglers to view our variety of colors, sizes, and options for pullovers or full zip styles.

Dragonfly Anglers Product Review: The Patagonia R1

February 5, 2014
The R1 was most definitely designed with the active person in mind and has all the features that such a person requires. Its sleek design and athletic fit make this a great jacket with other layers, or on its own as an outer shell. Kept close to skin, the unique grid pattern on the inside pulls moisture from your body and leaves you warm and dry. This makes it great for skiing, whether you are hiking in the backcountry, riding the resort, or touring on the skinny skis. The R1 is also a great choice for winter fishing when you need to pack on as many layers as you can fit. You can also grab it on your way out the door to Kochevars for a “Nowak” or two after a big day outdoors. Lightweight, versatile, and great for everyday life in Crested Butte, Colorado, the R1 will not disappoint.

Dragonfly Anglers carries the R1 in several colors and sizes or we can special order one from our Patagonia dealer inventory. Shop our online store, stop by our shop in Crested Butte, or call us at 970.349.1228 for your custom order.
