Patagonia goes to Whitewater for 2,000 vertical feet of Backside Bowl bliss, which most days translates to mean, damp cold. The Rubicon combines tough shell fabric and stay-warm-when-wet insulation to keep you warm and comfortable out there while everyone else is holed up with a latt and chili mac. The exterior is made of durable, 100% polyester ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to snub wind and moisture. Inside, a soft layer of compressible Thermogreen polyester (90% recycled) insulation adds heat to thwart icebox temperatures. Finer points include articulated arms; pit zips; an easy-gliding liner; a zip-off powder skirt (with webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia snow pants); a helmet-compatible hood with a single-hand adjustment; zippered pockets, including two handwarmers, one chest pocket, an interior media pocket with cable routing and one internal stash. There's also an internal drop-in for gloves and goggles and an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector.
