Patagonia Dual Aspect Hoody

What if you could find one jacket that serves as on-the-go insulation in cool to cold temperatures, functions as both a middle layer and an outer layer that sheds snow and light rain like a soft-shell jacket, but breathes better than most soft shells, so that you rarely take it off?

Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, called my National Outdoor Book Award-winning Before They’re Gone—A Family’s Year-Long Quest to Explore America’s Most Endangered National Parks, “a beautifully written, moving meditation on the meaning of parenthood, our parks, and the first generation of children to grow up in the age of global warming.” In the book, I write about the wilderness adventures my wife and I took with our young kids in 11 national parks facing threats from climate change.

And I’m giving away a signed, hardcover copy of my book right now. Click here to enter my giveaway now. It ends at midnight Monday.
