Under this jacket’s clean lines lies some serious cold weather protection. With its technical construction and minimalist urban aesthetic, the Patera is right at home in city winters. Supple 2-layer GORE-TEX™ is fully waterproof, breathable and windproof, yet maintains a lightly textured natural feel. Arc’teryx’s Down Composite Mapping™ blends pillowy down and Coreloft insulation. Mapping maximizes the jacket’s ability to keep you warm, but maintains a streamlined silhouette. With a 2-way front zipper, knit cuffs and an insulated collar your core warmth stays in and the cold stays out. All this weather protection doesn’t come at the cost of mobility. Articulated patterning and underarm gussets to allow free and easy movement. And, plenty of pocket space means you have lots of room to stash hats and gloves, or just keep your hands in from the cold.

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.
|Waterproof with fully taped seams|
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.
