Whether our objective is skiing a steep chute in the backcountry or traversing a knife blade ridge the Triolet Jacket by Patagonia has us covered. Rain and snow shed right off the three-layer GORE-TEX fabric keeping you dry as you carve turn after turn through waist deep powder. The helmet-compatible hood keeps snow from trickling down your back and still provides visibility when you need to keep your partner on belay. If the sun comes out from behind the clouds watertight two-way underarm zips dump heat to keep your core temperature at a comfortable level. Tall handwarmer pockets are easily accessible while wearing a harness or backpack so you can stash your phone or some snacks and take a moment to enjoy the scenery while knowing your jacket has you protected from whatever the weather throws at you.
