No Siesta, Infinite Spur, Exocet - for serious mixed climbing, Patagonia's alpine ambassadors wanted a pared-down pullover with storm-level protection and soft-shell breathability. Teaming with Polartec® to deliver, the new Men's Knifeblade Pull Over from Patagonia fabric fills the gap between traditional hard and soft shells, providing superb weather-resistance - it's functionally waterproof in all but a deluge - while remaining exceptionally breathable. It has a soft, pliable feel, slides easily over layers, and is durable enough to withstand big-route abuse. The stripped-down pullover has two water-resistant zippered chest pockets placed to avoid a harness or pack, low-profile cuff closures and Touch Point System™ embedded cord locks in the hood and hem for quick adjustment without opening the jacket. Sonic-welded seams reinforced with micro-stitching (patent pending) reduce seam bulk while optimizing strength, and the helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood with laminated visor provides optimal visibility in bad conditions. Full-reach gusseted underarm panels allow overhead mobility.


  • Fabric: 5.9-oz Polartec® Power Shield® Pro 94% polyester/6% spandex bonded to a tricot back
  • Polartec® Power Shield® Pro with tricot backing is engineered for optimal soft-shell performance in all conditions
  • Pullover silhouette reduces weight and bulk for use with a climbing harness or pack waist belt
  • Helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood with laminated visor for optimal visibility in bad conditions
  • Touch Point System™ embeds cord locks in the hood and hem for quick adjustments to seal out rain and snow (patented)
  • Modified Y-Joint™ sleeve construction for overhead mobility without jacket lifting
  • Pockets: Harness- and pack-compatible chest pocket configuration with moisture-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) reverse-coil zippers
  • Cuffs have low-profile closure with pleated gusset
  • Regular fit

Great piece with a caveat
March 25, 2013

Patagonia's Knifeblade Pullover is the answer to a very specific need: mixed climbing endeavors. I find that, for the most part, it succeeds. It eschews unnecessary pockets, zippers, etc., and offers a deep front zip for venting, a streamlined athletic fit, and a well-proportioned hood. The Polartec Powershield fabric is light but very stretchy, and seems quite durable. My issue was that the XL was tight in the shoulders (I'm 6'3"/225#) even with just a base layer, thereby compromising layering in cold conditions. In the end, this limited its versatility for me, and so had to return. If it fits your frame (thin, lanky), you won't be disappointed. Even though it didn't work out for me, I think these are the kinds of garments that put Patagonia at the leading edge of outdoor clothing. Altrec's great customer service, fast shipping, and killer deals are icing on the cake.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Cons: tight fit
