Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Core protection from even the worst wind, this durable soft-shell vest combines Polartec Windbloc stretch-woven fabric with a moisture-wicking fleece grid backer that keeps you warm and dry in cold conditions; with a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish to resist moisture
When blustery blasts threaten to slice through backcountry joy, our Adze Vest will keep you happy with full windproof protection where it matters most. It breathes, blocks wind and keeps quiet, just like a soft-shell vest should. Key is the Polartec(R) Windbloc(R) stretch-woven polyester shell, which deflects wind while breathing freely and maintaining a soft, supple hand. Inside, a microgrid fleece backer warms and wicks, feels great next to skin and allows total versatility over or under layers. Features include two handwarmer pockets (harness and pack compatible) and one internal chest pocket (all with reverse-coil zippers), a drawcord hem to seal out the elements and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to resist moisture.
When springtime gusts cut through your layers like a Japanese-made blade through a boiled turnip, it's time to suit up in the Patagonia Men's Adze Vest. This soft-shell vest mocks even the wildest wind with Polartec Windbloc fabric that's soft, pliable, stretchy. DWR coating encourages water and melting snow to bead up on the fabric's surface without affecting the garment's overall breathability. To keep your vitals warm, Patagonia's thrown in a drawcord hem, and a fleece grid backer sits under the shell; the backer wicks moisture, too, keeping you comfortable where it matters. Telling the arctic blasts to kiss off, the microfleece-lined neck and wind flap adds protection, and it also gives you next-to-skin comfort.
