Autumn / Winter 11 is a big season for Patagonia on a number of fronts, and one of these is that Gore-tex is back in the range. The Super Alpine is a classic reborn in Gore-tex. This technical jacket is built for long, cold days in the mountains. It uses the lightest and most durable nylon face fabric available. The 3-layer construction uses a special high performance membrane that's bonded between the outer material and Gore Micro Grid Backer Technology.
