Stopped by EMS and they had a 50% off sale on EMS brand merchandise. I couldn't resist getting some stuff like:

EMS Techwick Midweight Tights for $17.50.

And an EMS Techwick Midweight Crew Long Sleeve Shirt for $17.50

Has anybody used this Techwick stuff? I'm a merino wool man, but this Techwick stuff felt really good as a winter base layer. I wore it outside for a walk and it felt really warm. I thought about buying the heavyweight stuff, but was worried it would be too hot for me.

I also bought the EMS Thunderhead rain jacket for $49.50.

At $49.50, this jacket ain't cheap, but I had one of these before and loved it (zipper broke and I'm too lazy to fix it myself). It has kept me dry in some wicked downpours and it packs up small.

All in all, I spent $107 dollars and would have spent more but payday is a few days away. They have some sweet gear on sale, bu even after 50% off I still find their stuff to be too darned expensive.
