Patagonia Men's Alpine Wind Jacket:
On high ridges, steep ice and anything alpine, Patagonia's new Alpine Wind Jacket serves as a true "best of all worlds" staple. It excels as a stand-alone shell for blustery rock climbs, cool-weather trail runs and high-output ski tours. And then, when conditions have you ice and alpine climbing, it functions as a lightly insulated windshirt on the approach that doubles as a frictionless mid-layer when it’s time to bundle up and tie-in. The polyester ripstop shell, with Deluge® DWR treatment, sheds snow and blocks wind, while the smooth, lightly brushed hanging mesh liner wicks moisture, dries fast and doesn’t bind to your baselayers. Superlight stretch-woven underarm panels enhance breathability and allow for unimpaired arm motion, and zippers close the three pockets (two hand, one chest). A drawcord hem, elastic cuffs, a heat-transfer reflective logo and regular coil, center-front zipper with DWR finish round out the features. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.
