Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: H2NO+stretch
Price Paid: euro 200

This is an excellent jacket. I also have a Gore-Tex XCR jacket, but this one is just IT.

A very lightweight jacket with 3-layer reinforcements at the right places. On the shoulders so you can carry your bagpack without damaging the jacket. More than enough ventilation openings and taped zippers are the finishing touch. It has a very good fit around your body with elastic pieces. Never leave home without it, no matter what you'll be doing...

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Patagonia Men's Stretch Metabolic Jacket delivers the top-notch weather protection alpine climbers and backcountry skiers need at a light weight to satisfy ounce obsessions. Though this Patagonia shell weighs only 15.5oz, its waterproof breathable H2No Storm Stretch nylon shell keeps you completely dry in the worst downpour. A helmet-compatible hood and pockets that sit above a climbing harness make the Stretch Metabolic Jacket an ideal choice for technical alpine climbing. Whatever the terrain, whatever the weather, this Patagonia jacket keeps up with ease.

CSS seams also create a wonderfully clean finish on both the interior and exterior of the garment increasing the functional elegance of our already streamlined shell designs.
