Patagonia Piton Hybrid Jacket
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Patagonia's most durable, wind-resistant fleece jacket is a hybrid made of Polartec Wind Pro fabric with Hardface Technology and Polartec Power Dry fabric; it works well as an under layer or outer layer for long alpine climbs.
The Piton Hybrid jacket is the most durable, wind-resistant fleece in the Patagonia lineup. Its trim design works well on brisk fall hikes, mixed climbing burns and uphill skinning in a snowstorm. Flexible hybrid design lets you wear the jacket as a moderate-conditions outer layer until it's time to don a full-on shell. Features Polartec(R) Wind Pro(R) with Hardface(R) Technology in key areas: elbows and front, then wrapping over the shoulders and down to mid-back. Wind Pro's durable face is water repellent and abrasion resistant; the Durable Water Repellent finish adds extra protection. Remaining areas of main body use super breathable, stretchy and wicking Polartec(R) Power Dry(R) fabric; smooth jersey face slides easily beneath layers. Warm brushed-fleece interior moves moisture quickly to the fabric face. Microfleece-lined collar, chin guard; stretch binding on cuffs and hem. Zippered handwarmer pockets are pack- and harness-friendly. No shoulder seams provide pack-wearing comfort. Slim fit. Polartec Wind Pro: 50% recycled polyester/40% polyester/10% spandex. Polartec Power Dry: 54% recycled polyester/40% polyester/6% spandex.
Brisk fall days in the Tetons, mixed climbing burns at Ouray and uphill skinning in a snowstorm: The Piton Hybrid doubles as a moderate-conditions outer layer or insulating midlayer under a shell. Its trim design features a durable Polartec(R) Wind Pro(R) fabric in key areas (elbows and front, then wrapping over the shoulders and down to mid-back) with Hardface(R) Technology that enhances the Deluge(R) DWR (durable water repellent) finish for increased water repellency and abrasion resistance. The remaining areas use super breathable, stretchy and wicking Polartec Power Dry(R) fabric, creating a flexible body-mapped design. The one chest pocket and two zippered handwarmers are pack- and harness-compatible, while an absence of shoulder seams allows pack-wearing comfort.
