Patagonia Snap-Dry Hoody

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Through long days of fishing, the only constant is change. Staying comfortable means staying adaptable, so Patagonia developed the new Snap-Dry Hoody as part of a versatile, fish-specific layering system that lets you easily adjust to quickly shifting conditions. Providing performance-focused warmth and freedom of movement in cool weather, the Snap-Dry is built with a durable, fast-drying and highly water resistant 6.8-oz 63% nylon/26% polyester/11% spandex outer shell; the fabric has built-in 4-way stretch and a moisture-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) finish that sloughs off spray and lets the hoody snap dry with a quick shake.

Part of our versatile, fishing-specific layering system, we developed the stretchy Snap-Dry Hoody for the cool and windy conditions of shoulder seasons. Combining warmth, comfort and freedom of movement, it has a lightweight but durable 63% nylon/26% polyester/11% spandex face, with built-in four-way stretch and a moisture-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Worn as an outer layer or as a midlayer under a wading jacket in wet weather, the Snap-Dry has a full front zip and fast-wicking insulated lining in the body and hood for a touch of extra warmth. When the wind picks up, the generously sized hood fits easily over a baseball cap for additional protection. The zippered vertical-entry pocket on the left chest is sized to hold a fly box and has an easy-access zipper; two large handwarmer pockets are set on the lower front. The wrist cuffs have adjustable hook-and-loop closures to keep them securely in place and out of the way of your line.


When summer ends the fish don't start to head south for warmer climates, in fact they seem to gravitate towards the windiest banks and coolest rivers, which is why the Patagonia Snap-Dry Hoodie is a cool-weather necessity for the year-round fly fisher. Designed as part of Patagonia's fly-fish specific layering system, it features a four-way stretch fabric for unrestricted movement on any cast, as well as a warm and wicking insulated lining to keep you comfortable in chilly shoulder-season weather. A DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating sheds the spray from your last catch, and the fixed hood fits easily over a baseball cap for coverage from wind and light rain. The zippered chest pocket is large enough to fit a fly box when you need to try a new approach, while the open hand pockets hold extra gear and welcome in cold digits.
