Instead of scrambling for your shell at the first sign of snow, keep on pushing towards the summit with the Patagonia Men's Dual Aspect Hooded Jacket. Combining the insulating properties of fleece with the weather resistance of a softshell, the Dual Aspect sheds wind and snow thanks to its Polartec Power Shield body, which is bonded to an insulating layer of Power Grid Fleece fabric for additional warmth. Polartec Power Dry fabric along the underarms and lower torso adds a touch of stretch to the jacket while effectively wicking moisture in the process.The jacket functions as both a midlayer and shell with a slim fit that wears comfortably under a hardshell when the weather takes a turn for the worse. The hood traps heat that would otherwise be lost through your head with a snug, balaclava style fit and an elastic binding. The two handwarmer pockets maintain functionality when worn with a climbing harness, and the two internal drop in pockets are ideal for storing extra pieces of climbing gear and give frozen climbing skins a place to warm up before the skin back up.
