You didn't earn the title of powderhound by skiing bulletproof conditions when there were freshies to be found. The Patagonia Men's Reconnaissance Jacket shares your hunger for pow with a super breathable three layer softshell that keeps you cool on the skintrack but combats the chest deep shot of snow that's included with a clean line of pow. Being Patagonia's most breathable ski shell, the Reconnaissance is ideal for those big days in the backcountry, but will work for the occasional foray at the resort.To prevent moisture from sneaking through the stretch softshell, the Reconnaissance features fully taped seams, and it has a DWR finish along the face of the fabric for some added protection from moisture. The hood and hem have a low profile, locking drawcord to seal out wind and snow when the weather decides to take a turn for the worse. Inside the jacket is a single drop in pocket that will carry a pair of gloves or celebratory flask of bourbon, as well as a media compatible zippered pocket, so you can enjoy some of your favorite tunes when you're spinning laps at the resort.
