Here's what other sites are saying:
The Rubicon Rider insulated jacket combines flexible, breathable soft-shell fabric with synthetic insulation to keep you warm when you're throwing big-mountain tricks in clear, cold weather.
Patagonia's Rubicon Rider Jacket combines breathable fabric, stay-warm-when-wet insulation and reinforcement panels made from H2No Performance Standard waterproof/breathable fabric.
We make the Rubicon Rider for those whose shred style is driven by stoke, not hype. The Rubicon Rider manages the extremes of warm interior and cold exterior by combining a breathable and highly durable soft-shell fabric (to vent high-output moisture) with stay-warm-when-wet insulation (to keep you dry and mobile) and burly waterproof/breathable reinforcements (for storm protection). Made of supple 100% polyester ripstop, the shell has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to snub wind and moisture. Inside, a soft layer of compressible Thermogreen(R) polyester (90% recycled) insulation adds heat to icebox temperatures. Tough 2-layer, H2No(R) Performance Standard panels, made of 100% recycled polyester with a waterproof barrier and a Deluge DWR finish, beef up the shoulders, elbows and bottom hem to increase storm performance and protect from abrasion. Finer points include pit zips, an easy-gliding liner, a zip-off powder skirt (with webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia(R) snow pants), a removable, helmet-compatible hood with a single-hand adjustment and zippered pockets: two handwarmers, two chest (one with secure media pocket with cable routing), one internal drop-in and one internal stash. With an embedded RECCO(R) avalanche rescue reflector.
When winter sets in and the temperatures get really nasty, grab your Patagonia Rubicon Rider Jacket and brave winter's worst. The insulated Rubicon Rider comes complete with Patagonia's Thermogreen synthetic insulation (150g) for days when the cost of all that light, dry powder is frigid temperatures. Patagonia designed the Rubicon Rider jacket with 2-layer H2NO waterproof breathable panels in key areasshoulders, elbows and bottom hemto increase storm performance and protect from abrasion. The main body fabric is 75D polyester ripstop, which is both durable and soft to the touch, and features a Deluge DWR finish to allow it to shed light rain and snow. The removable, helmet-compatible, adjustable hood locks in warmth and features soft microfleece panels at the back of the neck and chin. Patagonia also equipped the Rubicon Rider with a sleek, low-profile powder skirt that stays in place whether secured or not. The powder skirt features a loop of nylon webbing that connects to any Patagonia Snow pants to form a single powder barrier. The Rubicon Rider jacket's fit is relaxed for easy layering. A slew of pockets keep your stuff (everything from climbing skins to your MP3 player) safe and secure while you lap the chair or a favorite backcountry shot, and zippered underarm vents make it easy to dump heat when you need to. Patagonia finished off the Rubicon Rider with a Recco reflector, which makes rescue easier if you're involved in an in-bounds avalanche.
