Patagonia Guide Parka
Fabric: Nylon w/ H2No Plus
Price Paid: ~ $200
I bought this jacket eight years ago and have many good things to say about this garment as well as Patagonia as a company. I had a small tear in the sleeve and sent it back to the company to have it repaired. I have never had a company call me back to see if I was happy with the FREE work they did! Thanks, Patagonia....the jacket has been working for everything from mountaineering to fishing. The only complaint is breathability. The H2No Plus fabric coating is neither waterPROOF nor breathable. Good for more sedentary pursuits........
Fabric: H2O Plus
Price Paid: $278
I have had this jacket since 1989. It has been tested in many different climates both in Alaska and in the Rockies it has climbed Mt. Rainier and has always kept me dry and warm.
Come last year it lost its ability to repel moisture. I called Patagonia and they promptly asked me to send it back and within 10 days they had sent me a new one. Thank you very much, Patagonia. I would recommend this jacket and this company to anyone.
