Patagonia Nine Trails Jacket£85, added May/2010, see all Patagonia news & reviews
announcement by Patagonia
The Nine Trails Jacket is for those whose idea of entertainment has everything to do with lung-busting mountain passes. Made from lightweight, wind-resistant 15-denier 100% nylon, it's treated with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed light rain. Its exceptionally breathable stretch-woven back and underarm panels (91% all-recycled polyester/9% spandex) vent excess heat. The high-rise tricot-lined neck, revised wrists (now with improved elastic-style cuffs that are easily pushed up) and drawcord at the hem seal out chilly weather. The jacket stashes into its own internal chest pocket. Reflective heat-transfer logos (front and back) keep you visible.
Keeping our mission statement: 'Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm', we're pleased to announce that 88% of our Spring/Summer 2010 apparel either contains an e-fiber or is recyclable. 62% of our velocity clothing is recyclable, a huge achievement for any technical line and 69% contains recycled materials.
