Everyone else is skiing, in the gym or by the fireplace, but you’re still racking-up below sun-touched rock. The Down Sweater’s featherweight, superbly compressible warmth is for you. The revised 100% polyester ripstop shell on this down jacket does more than look sharp; it’s tear-resistant, snow shedding and windproof. Details include top-quality, ethically sourced and traceable 800-fill-power premium European goose down stabilized with a quilted-through construction, two exterior zippered pockets and an interior chest pocket that doubles as a zippered stuffsack with a carabiner clip-in loop. Now with a more contoured fit, new quilting lines and a slightly longer hem. Nylon-bound elastic cuffs and drawcord hem (tightens from inside the handwarmer pockets) seal in heat, and the DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds moisture.
Comments:I am using cold caps to save my hair during chemotherapy treatment for cancer. I need to wear clothing that doesn't pull my hair, which is why I purchased this jacket. The material is "slippery," so that my hair doesn't get caught on it, so it rates perfectly in the cancer department! I know and love the Patagonia brand, but this is my first Patagonia winter jacket (also highly recommend the Better Sweater). I live in northern Massachusetts, where temps are often below freezing in the winter months. I wear this jacket walking the gods and I don't feel cold, even she temps are in the teens. I find that it buffers the wind quite nicely. In general, ordering from Clearwater was a great experience. I couldn't find a lower price for this jacket anywhere. Plus, shipping was super fast (2 days to me), and the staff included a fun personalized note in my package.
