For climbers obsessed with shaving grams and streamlining their systems, our M10(TM) Anorak embodies the ethos of single-push perfection-when efficiency matters and actions have consequence, you don't care if a pullover musses your hair. We took our most minimal alpine shell and honed it even further, with a trim half-zip silhouette that won't pooch in the belly and ensures you can see every dime edge and verglas smear. Its engineered pattern eliminates seams from the shoulders and back panel, reducing points of failure and enhancing the modest stretch of the fabric. The Anorak is built with an ultralight, 3-layer, H2No(R) Performance Standard waterproof/breathable nylon ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Ultrasonic-welded seams are reinforced with narrow seam tape for superlow bulk, and the helmet-compatible hood with laminated visor and single-pull adjustment rolls down and stows with a simplified cord-and-hook design. The exterior left-chest pocket closes with a coated, watertight zipper, and the jacket self-stuffs into its chest pocket (with carabiner clip-in loop). Ultraminimal cuffs seal out weather, and a single-pull drawcord cinches the hem.
Save weight, save bulk, and save yourself from getting drenched from summer showers and heavy winter snows, thanks to the Patagonia M10 Anorak. This minimalist climbing shell represents years of research by Patagonia in the pursuit of helping you go ultralight in alpine environments, without sacrificing the dependable waterproofing and performance you'd expect from Patagonia. A three-layer H2No membrane ensures your protection from ever-changing alpine weather, while the helmet-compatible hood ensures total coverage from the storm. This jacket is also designed to meet the demands of tough climbing maneuvers. A seam-free design on the shoulders and back panel keep you free from worrying about blow-outs or restricted movement. The few seams that are there are ultrasonic-welded for fully-sealed security that reduces bulk but boosts durability. Elasticized cuffs seal out the elements with a simple design, and roll up easily when your route demands it. When the weather clears up on multi-pitch climbs, you can easily stuff the M10 into its own chest pocket and clip it onto your harness with a handy carabiner loop.
