Make a break for the backcountry in the Patagonia Women’s Refugative Jacket. Fully waterproof, windproof, and breathable, this technical shell is made from an impenetrable three-layer Gore-Tex fabric that keeps sloppy precipitation and piercing winds at bay while letting sweaty moisture escape to ensure you stay nice and dry in the mountains all day. But this jacket isn’t made from your everyday three-layer Gore-Tex fabric; it has Gore C-Knit backer technology to make it even softer, lighter, and more breathable than the original. A specially-engineered Optimal Visibility Hood adjusts with a single-pull cordlock system to make sure it fits over any sized helmet, or just your bare head, without compromising your line of sight when the storm rolls in. If you start to get a bit too hot while bootpacking, this jacket has watertight, two-way underarm zips to help you dump any excess heat throughout your trek. If you expect some tomahawking throughout the day, pre-emptively nip it in the bud by connecting the elasticized strap at the back to your Patagonia snow pants to prevent the jacket from riding up and allowing powder from getting in. Throw your keys, wallet, and phone in any of the multiple zippered pockets for safe keeping before strapping in.
