Our most technical soft shell for full-on mountain pursuits strikes the alpinist's balance between protection and minimalism. The dense polyester-stretch doubleweave, with stitchless seams, has exceptional water- and wind-resistance, a rapid dry time and superb breathability. Pared-down detailing provides everything you need and nothing more: a helmet-compatible, 3-way-adjustable hood; water-resistant zippers; large external handwarmer pockets (with zipper garages) that are placed above the harness-line; an internal security pocket; articulated arms; supple die-cut cuff tabs and elastic at the wrists; a drawcord hem. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program..

Recycled and Recyclable Polyester
We recycle used soda bottles, unusable second quality fabrics and worn out garments into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Patagonia's proprietary durable water repellent fabric finish, Deluge DWR, lasts substantially longer than standard DWRs. Garments with the Deluge DWR finish have like-new repellency after years of extensive use.
