Not even the coldest days of the year bring down your stoke level on the slopes when you wear the Patagonia Women's Primo Down Jacket. Updated this season with a new fabric, and backed by a Gore-Tex membrane, this jacket provides waterproof, windproof, and breathable protection from winter's nastiest weather. The traceable down insulation keeps you nice and toasty in weather that chills even the abominable snowman. In addition to a whole new fabric package, the Primo features refined design lines and an adjustable, removable powder skirt. An articulated fit gives you freedom to move when you're skiing through tight trees or carving giant slalom turns on the groomers. The powder skirt can be cinched for a tight seal on deep days, and lies flat when not in use. Underarm zippers provide easy ventilation to prevent overheating. Its hood slides over your helmet with ease and adjusts for a secure fit. Patagonia topped this jacket off with a concealed Recco reflector to aid rescue teams in the event of an emergency.
