You can't fail with stylish and warm. This versatile polyester fleece (available for men as well as women) transfers from city streets to the hiking trail, thanks to its tailored slim fit. As an added bonus, it also attracts less lint (and pet hair) than the standard Patagonia fleece.

Of course, it's not all style: From their sustainable wool program in Argentina to their obsessive use of recycled fabrics, there are lots of other reasons to turn to Patagonia for outdoor gear.

And they're a TreeHugger-tested favorite: One editor confesses to having three Better Sweater Jackets. (Patagonia Women's Better Sweater, $129, Patagonia Men's Better Sweater, $129)
