The Patagonia Women's Fitz Roy Down Jacket cackles with evil delight when environmental menaces like a polar vortex, a bone chilling belay, or city shuttering blizzard try to thwart your continual core warmth. Made with durable, DWR finished ripstop fabric, the sweetly shiny and secretly tough DWR treated reinforcements help this jacket shed icy drizzles and fierce flurries without succumbing to the non stop rubbing by your pack straps. Down insulation gives you the biggest hit of heat with the smallest hit on your scale. Down doesn't mind being man handled, so you can squish this portable heater into the nether regions of your luggage when you're trying to be strategic about packing for a two week trip to Canada to see the Northern Lights. Both the nylon shell and Y yarn nylon reinforcements offer a hit of protection against initial precipitation. The 800 fill Traceable Down gives you unbeatable warmth to weight so you can move without feeling overloaded. The feathers filling your jacket have been ethically sourced: the geese were not force fed nor were they denuded while still amongst the honking. Sewn through horizontal baffles prevent the down from clumping and settling in favored locations. Your preferred paw protection, be it mittens, gauntleted gloves, or silkweight liners, play nicely with bound cuffs to minimize wrist exposure and subsequently cold fingers. Cut to flatter your hard earned figure, the Fitz Roy slips under a hardshell for full weather protection or over a trim fitting fleece when you're playing in an arid environment. Two hand pockets give you storage for a few snacks or kiss saving lip balm. The chest pocket is the perfect place for your currency.
