Patagonia's Piolet Jacket uses a durable waterproof/breathable and windproof 2-layer polyester GORE-TEX fabric, the redesigned Piolet Jacket is now more comfortable and functional than ever.
When seasons change in the mountains, the Piolet Gore-Tex jacket helps keep you snug and dry from thunderstorms to raging wind and snow.
Patagonia created The Piolet Jacket for the commitment-phobe who wants to play the field. That is, who wants to do it all when it comes to outdoor pursuits, from high-alpine trekking, to skiing, to climbing ... you name it, she'll go after it, no matter what the conditions. This jacket features Gore-Tex Performance Shell, which is a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane bonded to an extremely durable nylon face fabric for bomber protection in the nastiest winter storms imaginable.
When seasons change in the Rockies, the weather hazards shift from thunderstorms to raging wind and snow. Our updated Piolet Jacket remains unfazed. It protects, moves and breathes with an improved shell, using a more supple 2-layer polyester waterproof/breathable and windproof GORE-TEX(R) fabric that has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The hanging liner is now comprised of a brushed and wicking mesh in the body, with smooth-layering taffeta in the sleeves, and the improved drop-collar design on the helmet-compatible, 2-way adjustable hood provides exceptional coverage and visibility. Finer details include minimal welt exterior and interior storm flaps on the center-front zipper; extremely low-bulk, watertight, coated pit zips; and three external pockets (the jacket also has an internal zippered security pocket). With low-profile contoured cuff closures and full-reach gusseted underarm panels for mobility.
