If there’s anything Patagonia knows about, it’s outfitting you for the right kind of climate anytime of the year. Highlights from the brand’s latest spring 2014 collection include solid, lightweight outerwear options that can stand on their own or  work as additional layers underneath any type of jacket.

These five standout items are only part of the overall collection, but in terms of ideal spring gear, these are probably the strongest options. The Alpine Houdini Jacket, Ultralight Down Jacket, and Nano Puff Hoody are the best options if Mother Nature is a little (too) generous with rain in your area. And the Down Sweater and Lighweight Synchilla Snap-T are great for keeping you toasty whether you're hiking or spending quality time on the couch.  The collection is perfect transitional weather gear as we all patiently wait for these brick temperatures to go away.
