Patagonia Piolet Jacket - Women's



Show Description

Mountain weather can throw anything at you, and to reach the base of the route, you may have to bike the last 12k of the logging road. For mountain all-rounders the Piolet Jacket brings it. It offers versatile protection, good movement, and breathable 2-layer nylon with a waterproof-breathable membrane. The helmet-compatible, 2-way adjustable hood has a stiffened visor for optimal visibility, and the embedded cord locks in the hood and hem allow quick adjustment without opening the jacket to the elements.

  • Made of 2-layer nylon waterproof-breathable GORE-TEX® fabric that repels moisture.
  • Helmet-compatible hood with a laminated visor provides good visibility in poor conditions.
  • Touch Point System™ with embedded cord locks in hood and hem for quick-and-easy adjustment.
  • Gusseted underarm panels let you reach without raising the body of the jacket.
  • Underarm zips feature supple, slim, watertight-coated zips.
  • Chest pockets are compatible with a harness and pack. Single internal zippered pocket.
  • Zippers are very water-resistant, but not waterproof, so we don't recommend storing items inside the pockets that could be damaged if they get wet.
  • Pleated gasket cuffs provide a tight, low-profile wrist seal.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
