Patagonia took their extremely popular Better Sweater and added a layer of insulation, making an already warm garment even warmer. The inner lining is treated with DWR and sandwiches a layer of insulation between the outer sweater fabric and lining. The final garment is a warm and very cozy cool weather item. The fitted hood adds an extra measure of warmth when the wind picks up.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
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.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
