Optimal efficiency in insulation and design merge with the lightweight and windproof Down Sweater Hoody Pullover by Patagonia. The cozy silhouette traps heat with the high-lofting and humane 800-fill-power Advanced Global Traceable Down (goose down certified by NSF International, traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure that the birds are not force-fed or live-plucked). The 100% recycled polyester shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish provides wind and weather protection, while quilting lines stabilize the down and accentuate the contoured fit. Further detailing includes a kangaroo-style handwarmer pocket, and a zippered drop-in torso pocket that doubles as a stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop. A single-pull adjustable hood, elastic cuffs and a drawcord hem further seal in heat.
