Sure you could go up to Napa and dish out a bunch of dough to sit at a spa. But for those who like their relaxation outdoors, under the stars and in a beautiful setting, we recommend scrapping a ritzy mud bath and checking out some of Northern California's natural hot springs.
Marmot, the beloved, local gear and clothing company, opens its flagship store this Friday on Post between Grant and Kearny.
For San Franciscans, the move brings a touch of Sierra Nevada backcounty to one of the city’s highest-end retail blocks.
A true northern California company – like two of its big competitors, The North Face and Mountain Hardware – Marmot built its reputation by making some of the best down-filled and Gore-Tex products in the early 70's.
It's going to snow (find out if it's snowing now here). So we went ahead and found some great deals on winterware to keep you warm. From the heavy duty to the highly efficient, here are a few steals on jackets for your winter arsenal.
The Total Steal
Marmot Down Vest
Men's and Women's
$64.84 (Down from $140)
A solid solution for combatting the cold is to take something warm you already own and put an amazingly down-priced, down-vest from a great local company right over it. Blammo.
The Furry Friend
Patagonia Retro-X Hoody
Men's and Womens
$114.50 (Down from $229)
We like to think the awesomeness of this jacket is self-explanatory. It's as if a stylish wooly mammoth was hugging you.
