The REI Holiday Warm Up Sale is here with thousands of deals on some of the best outdoor winter gear and clothing just in time for the holidays. With brands like Smartwool, Merrell, and The North Face offering huge discounts, it’s easy to overlook the REI Co-op house brand, which is where you’ll find the biggest savings on anything from popular down puffers and most of its fleece collection, like the bestselling Trailsmith jacket.

Right now, REI Co-op’s Trailsmith fleece jacket is one of the best deals you’ll find during the sale. It’s a warm, lightweight jacket that’s as good for long days on the trail as it as a casual night in the backyard. This top-rated jacket is discounted to just $54—40% off the original price of $90. There are eight colors to choose from, each of which is marked down.

The jackets come in regular and tall sizes, and colors include “Sea Forest,” “Baked Earth,” and “Army Cot Green.” It’s made from Polartec microfleece, a lightweight and warm fleece that’s made from 80% recycled polyester. It’s designed with a stand collar to provide extra warmth for your neck and features two zippered hand pockets and a side-entry chest, or “Napoleon” pocket.

Retro hiking style is back in a big way. The North Face brought back its famous Nuptse jacket from the ‘90s, and Patagonia’s aptly named classic Retro-X fleece jacket continues to be a bestseller. Likewise, REI revived this silhouette from its archives, which is based on a jacket from REI’s 1992 catalog. Despite harkening back to the ‘90s, the functionality and lightweight warmth of a fleece make it a modern menswear staple.

“Best” is a word you’ll find in the reviews, with one shopper going as far as saying it’s “the best fleece jacket I have found,” and another calling it the “best fleece jacket for casual and hiking activities.”

Overall, shoppers found it cozy and functional, with one writing that the jacket was “very comfortable,” adding they liked the zipper pockets. Shoppers also find the jacket to be versatile for a range of outdoor settings, with one writing that they “used it on a canoe trip as a 40-degree morning jacket and slept with it on colder nights.” It’s also worth noting that shoppers found that the jacket ran large, so it may be worth considering sizing down, depending on your preferred fit.

REI’s Holiday Warm Up Sale has extended some of our favorite deals from Cyber Week, including on REI Co-op’s down jackets. The sale runs until December 18, with discounts of up to 50%. If you’re looking at this jacket as a gift, you have until 9 a.m. on December 19th to have it arrive before Christmas. Don’t wait, though, as sizes aren’t guaranteed to stay in stock.
