According to data from the NPD Group, an unseasonably warm winter didn't just take a bite out of outerwear sales. As sales of jackets, vests and parkas dropped 6 percent during the fourth quarter, those for camping equipment jumped 13 percent.
NPD attributed the unusual spending patterns to both above-average temperatures and shifting shopper preferences.
"Despite the atypical weather, there is still a shift taking place when it comes to consumer preference for outerwear, which is altering the category landscape," said Matt Powell, vice president and sports industry analyst at The NPD Group.
"Driven by the millennials, consumers are choosing lightweight puffy jackets and multiple layers that incorporate new technologies as opposed to traditional, heavy winter coats."
