Named after a versatile type of tool that has been used by humans from pre-history into modern times, the Patagonia Men's Adze Jacket offers multi-purpose weather-protection that makes it a must-have for any outdoor adventurer. It provides the right combination of stretch and breathability with wind- and waterproofing so you stay shielded from the elements without compromising performance or mobility. Two-layer softshell stops wind in its tracks when you're on exposed walls and peaks, and it's DWR-coated to repel light rain and snow. Plus, it offers enhanced mobility and breathability to let you reach difficult holds while climbing and prevent you from getting bogged down with sweat on the trail. Adjustable cuffs fit over gloves in harsh conditions, and also allow the sleeves to push up easily without constricting your forearms when you get a little warm. When brisk winds try blowing in from underneath, you can cinch down the hem by simply pulling the cord inside the hand pockets, and quickly release with the cord locks at the side hem.
