The Patagonia Men's Adze Hybrid Hooded Jacket is designed with maximum versatility in mind. It's perfect for those days when it's too cold and windy to climb in just a midlayer, but putting on a hard shell has you sweating through your layers in about ten minutes. The Adze provides the right combination of stretch and breathability, with windblocking performance and water repellency to keep you shielded from the elements without compromising performance or mobility. Two-layer softshell stops wind in its tracks when you're on exposed walls and peaks, and DWR-coating repels light rain and snow. It also offers enhanced mobility and breathability to let you reach difficult holds while climbing and prevent you from getting bogged down with sweat on the trail. A single-pull hood adjustment lets you quickly and easily cinch down your hood when an unexpected storm hits, even over a helmet. Adjustable cuffs fit over gloves in harsh conditions, and also allow the sleeves to push up easily without constricting your forearms when you get a little warm. When brisk winds try blowing in from underneath, you can cinch down the hem by simply pulling the cord inside the hand pockets, and quickly release with the cord locks at the side hem.
