Patagonia Down Sweater Full-Zip Hooded Jacket - Mens

After years of dominating the outdoor apparel market, Patagonia takes things one step further with its Patagonia Down Sweater Full-Zip Hooded Jacket. Despite its highly-descriptive name, the jacket will keep you warm, dry, and comfortable on the slopes.

It’s hard to tell exactly what this jacket is. And that’s where its name comes from. Is it a hoody, a sweater, or a jacket? The best answer is that it is all three. It’s recycled polyester outer-shell with DWR coating and 800-fill goose down keep this baby toasty warm, windproof, and water-resistant.

Unlike many similar jackets on the market, this offering from Patagonia isn’t bulky. Nor is it heavy. In fact, it is extremely thin and lightweight all of which add to its overall comfort. Better yet, it is intelligently designed so that every bit of the jacket has a function. Elastic cuffs and a draw-cord hem provide a quick and snappy way to keep the cold out and the heat in. The insulated hood is thin yet warm and fits perfectly over a beanie while also providing some neck and face protection.

Patagonia itself recommends that the jacket be used for extremely cold environments. Climbing, mountaineering, and backpacking are all given the thumbs up by the company. Snowboarders and skiers can rest assured that they will be equally warm in the jacket while blasting around on the mountain. Even you folks who prefer the backcountry will be more than happy with the Patagonia Down Sweater Full-Zip Hooded Jacket.

If you need a jacket that is lightweight, warm, and waterproof, then the Patagonia Down Sweater Full-Zip Hooded Jacket is for you. In addition, it’s comfortable and stylish and can be layered both on top of and underneath other outwear. Don’t hit the snow this season without protection, hit it with Patagonia.

The Ski Utah Wild Women of the Wasatch find happiness in the moments of synergy between the earth, our bodies and minds, that face shot of powder floating light as a bird across the snow. The deep belly laughs bubbling out when our girlfriend cracks a joke at the goofy outfit we put on, just because. It’s the chill that runs up our spine when the mountain breeze meets the sweat from hiking up the peak. It’s that sweet, sweet rush of pointing ‘em straight down the mountain, and when it comes
