Super Alpine Jacket (Men's)
In Stock Product Number: 26900
Wind howls, spindrift blasts and cornices loom across ridges. Up or down? Those who endure big mountains—whether ski mountaineering or alpine climbing—know that bomber protection is as crucial as decision-making. The newly refined Super Alpine Jacket protects against the worst possible weather with the best available waterproof/breathable and windproof fabrics. It features a lighter, yet still durable 3-layer nylon new generation GORE-TEX Pro fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and key-area reinforcements, and a redesigned technical fit with a slimmer torso and longer hem. The two harness-compatible handwarmer pockets have an improved single-pleat design that lets you see your feet but also allows the pockets to expand without bulky seams. Trim, watertight zippers for the pockets and pit zips are laminated in place to reduce weight and bulk; a small internal zippered chest pocket stows small valuables. The underarm gussets keep the jacket in place when you lift your arms, and the Gasket Dry Cuffs still seal out the elements at the wrists but are now far more streamlined. Our reengineered, adjustable and helmet-compatible Optimal Visibility Hood has a laminated visor and the sleek Touch Point System embedded cord locks (in the hood and hem) have been improved for easier adjustment without opening the jacket.

Comments about Patagonia Super Alpine Jacket (Men's):
Talk about a good first impression. Right after I got this jacket I was in the thick of it that was Super Storm/ Hurricane Sandy. In both the rain and the snow that it dumped on us it certainly proved its worth. Hands down my favorite thing about this jacket is the wrist gaskets...what a great addition. The fit is spot on as it is cut athletic but easy to layer underneath as the temps drop. At this point I have been through multiple Gore-tex Shells and this is my favorite so far. Its burly and is taking all the abuse I can give it. As a disclaimer I test products for the Gore company.
