Tasermiut Fjord, Greenland: driving rain, mammoth mosquitoes and sweeping, awesome, perfect granite walls. In any place that's potentially drenching, our premier, 3-layer waterproof/breathable technical 100% nylon shell with Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) delivers full stretch-woven mobility and durability, near-soft-shell breathability and a surprisingly supple hand. It's also compressible and made with our stitch-free construction, reinforced with exceptionally flexible tape (patent pending) to reduce weight and to keep seams dryer. Details include: an easy-gliding, extremely water-resistant center-front zipper; two internal mesh drop-in pockets and three secure external pockets with zipper garages; pit zips; a roll-down, 3-way-adjustable (and helmet-compatible) hood; and low-profile self-fabric cuff tabs.
Our premium, full-stretch waterproof alpine jacket is our most breathable hard shell. This garment has a Slim Fit

Patagonia VIDEO: Matt Helliker and Jon Bracey's Meltdown Lecture
Matt Helliker and Jon Bracey, two of the U.K.'s hottest alpinists, present The Meltdown Lecture Series.
From November 22nd to December 4th, they will travel across the U.K, starting at the Kendal Mountain Festival. The two Patagonia ambassadors will tell the public about their search for new routes in the Ruth Gorge, Alaska, where they went in May.
During two weeks, they had exceptionally stable weather combined with some good ephemeral ice conditions. Perfect to open two great new routes:
The Meltdown: ED3, V, M6 R, 1300m. 12 hours climbing time and 20 hours camp to camp.
Now, Matt and Jon have a strong experience to share: two news routes, alpine style, committed and exposed, six months planning, a lifetimes' training, leave no footprint... Great pictures, movies and stories about their adventure will give the opportunity to everyone to experience opening a new climbing route... just like if you were there!
