The Patagonia Insulated Snowbelle Jacket comes with a couple of updates for this season. An attached hood, exposed waterproof center-front zip and a lighter-weight insulation package for better versatility.
For the full-time rider, weekend warrior or decade-plus ski bum, the priorities are all pretty much the same: good friends, good snow, good times (and maybe some good beer, too).
Stick around for a week or a year in the Patagonia Womens Insulated Snowbelle. This waterproof jacket combines compressible insulation with a durable shell to keep you warm and free in the nastiest weather. Built with a soft-to-the-touch yet tough H2No™ Performance Standard 2-layer, 100 % polyester shell with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish for wet weather. Lightweight 80-g Thermogreen™ polyester (90 % recycled) insulation in the body and 40-g in the arms feels soft, wraps you in warmth and stays that way even when wet. A 100 % polyester lining wicks moisture and glides smoothly over layers. Other details include a 2-way-adjustable, helmet-compatible hood (with a laminated visor), articulated sleeves with pit zips for venting, fleece panels at the neck and chin, and a low-profile powder skirt (with webbing loop that connects to any Patagonia® Snow pants).
Zippered pockets include two hand warmers, one chest (with media pocket and cable routing) and one internal stash pocket. There's also an internal drop-in pocket for goggles and gloves. With an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector and an articulated, feminine silhouette.
