The Patagonia Men's Triolet Jacket is a jack of all trades that can handle everything from resort skiing and snowshoeing to backcountry tours and alpine treks. Gore Tex three layer fabric offers rugged protection from the elements for versatile performance and durability in driving snow, howling winds, and torrential rain. In addition to shielding you from harsh weather, Gore Tex is also highly breathable to allow sweat vapors to escape when you're hiking or skinning so you stay dry from the inside and outside. The re engineered Optimal Visibility hood protects your face from intense wind and sideways snow without blocking your line of sight so you can still see clearly. Watertight underarm zips let you vent excess heat when you're following a grueling skintrack, and an elasticized strap at the back hooks up to your Patagonia pants so your jacket doesn't ride up while riding. Low profile cuffs and a dual adjust drawcord hem seal out frigid drafts. Patagonia also made sure the zippered hand pockets are accessible even with a harness or waist belt on, so you can easily get to your snacks while you're on the go. Whatever alpine adventure you're setting out on, make sure to bring the Triolet along for the journey.
