When you're six pitches up on an arête and the wind is threatening to blast you off the rock wall, you'll find some protection from the gusts with the Patagonia Adze Vest for men. Sturdy and light Polartec® Windbloc® fabric with Deluge® DWR blocks wind in its tracks and wicks any precipitation blowing around as well. This softshell vest features stretch-woven fabric with soft, supple outer face and a fleece grid backer that wicks moisture and keeps your core warm. It's a great piece for backpacking, hiking, climbing, cross country skiing, and generally, anything that you might do outside. It breathes well when you're exerting yourself, while the micro-fleece lined neck feels soft against your skin and the hem drawcord provides extra protection from chilly drafts. Two zip-close handwarmer pockets are compatible with your climbing harness or pack and provide warm shelter for your hands. An internal chest pocket provides secure storage for small items.


  • Fabric: 9-oz Polartec® Windbloc® 93% polyester, 7% spandex, with a Deluge® DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish

More Slim than Regular
March 05, 2013

First, had to return. At 5'9", 180 with a 43" chest and 35" waist, I own a number of items from Patagonia in their Regular fit. I always have plenty of room with ease of movement through chest and shoulder and torso. This vest has a cut that reminds me more of their Slim fit. It was tight over just a short sleeve T in the upper body and down right "really tight" in the waist. The XL, which I tried on in a retail store, was just to big through the chest and shoulders, but fit through the waist. As for fit and finish, it looked to be top notch.

Pros: Build quality, Cons: Bad design
