Patagonia Refugative Jacket - Women's



Show Description

Shelter for the high-country escape artist. The Refugative Jacket is a lightweight, ultra-packable shell for alpine touring missions or on-hill ski days. A 3-layer waterproof-breathable shell offers up protection when either you or the weather is fully storming. Flex fabric through the arms and back offer full and free mobility. The hood adjusts with a single pull and locks in the position over a toque or a helmet. And technical features like underarm vents, high pockets and watertight zippers make it a solid choice for alpinists, backcountry skiers and in-bound shredders.

  • 3-layer nylon ripstop GORE-TEX® shell sheds water, an inner C-knit layer keeps it breathable, compressible, and softly flexible.
  • Stretch nylon GORE-TEX in the lower arms and upper back offers easy mobility. DWR finish sheds water.
  • Optimal Visibility hood adjusts with a single pull and fits over a climbing or skiing helmet.
  • 2 handwarmer pockets with watertight zips ride comfortably above a harness or hipbelt.
  • Welted exterior chest pocket, internal left chest pocket, and interior stretch drop-in pocket.
  • Watertight 2 way underarm zips for ventilation on steep approaches.
  • Elastic interior strap and snap connect to compatible pants to prevent riding up.
  • Hem cinches with a Cohaesive embedded cordlock for one-handed adjustment.
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to locate Recco reflectors under snow. Recco technology is not a substitute for skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry.

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.

Length Hip-length
Durable water repellency
