Snow ambassador Bryce Phillips, swears by the Rubicon Rider for maintaining a redline pace through the coldest days in the Pacific Northwest. 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 Deluge(R) 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 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; zippered pockets: two handwarmers; one chest with secure media pocket with cable routing; one internal drop-in; and one internal stash; and 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.
