Like it or not, it's September, and sweater season is just around the corner. If you're looking for a solid, do-anything layering piece that doesn't scream "technical," it's hard to go wrong with the Better Sweater. Made out of knit polyester, this fleece looks casual enough for the workday, but has the chops to layer under a hardshell when the weather gets truly nasty. Right now, the quarter-zip version is on sale at REI. Because it's on closeout, the price depends on your size: Get the men's S-M and XL-XXL for $49 (50% off), or the men's XS-L for $74 (25% off) on REI Outlet. The women's model is $49 for the XS or XL and $74 for the XXS-M on REI Outlet.
