Patagonia Men's Rubicon Rider Jacket

When snow squeaks, you know it's cold out. This insulated coat combines the warmth for a good thaw with a highly breathable soft-shell fabric and durable, waterproof panels. Made from supple, 50-denier 100% polyester ripstop for decidedly breathable performance during high-output endeavors; a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish blocks out wind and determined snow squalls. Tough 2-layer panels, made from 150-denier polyester (50% recycled) with a H2No® waterproof/breathable barrier, beef up the shoulders, elbows and bottom hem to increase abrasion-resistance. A lightweight layer of compressible 150-g Thermogreen™ polyester (90% recycled) insulation warms up predawn starts. Finer points include underarm venting, an easy-gliding liner (100% all-recycled polyester taffeta), a zip-off powder skirt with webbing loops that attach to any Patagonia® Ski/Snowboard pants, removable hood with a single-hand adjustment, handwarmer pockets, a zippered chest pocket (holds an audio device) and two inside pockets.
