There'll come a time when high winds and driving snow will force you to reconsider your objective, but until you're forced to bail back to base camp, the Patagonia Men's Pluma Jacket will keep you dry and protected from the ever-changing alpine weather. Ridge line winds and falling spindrift won't stand a chance against the Pluma's waterproof and windproof Gore-Tex Pro shell, which maintains breathability whether you're ascending a steep couloir or making the final push to the summit along the summit ridge. What really sets the Pluma apart from other alpine shells, though, is the jacket's durable face fabric that's comprised entirely of recycled nylon, making the jacket one of the first waterproof, breathable garments to utilize an entirely recycled face.
