Instead of having your body fight off the cold weather, let Patagonia's Rubicon Jacket do the work, especially since you'll quickly find that it does one heck of a job. This jacket really works to keep you warm and snow free as a result of its lofty Thermogreen insulation, DWR treated polyester shell that will help to block precipitation, and powder skirt to keep the snow out and fun in. The Rubicon Jacket is crafted for those of us who like to look stunning from the time you leave your house to the time you hit the slope, all thanks to its unique quilting pattern and sleek colors.

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.
