It’s lofty for sure, but the Micro Puff Hoody delivers the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any jacket Patagonia has ever created. The unprecedented combination of warmth, minimal weight, and compressibility - even when wet - offers the versatility of synthetic without compromising the benefits of down. The revolutionary PlumaFill insulation (65-g 100 % polyester) is featherlight and compressible, offering down-level warmth that still traps your heat when it’s wet. A nylon ripstop Pertex Quantum® GL shell, with a DWR (durable waterproof repellent) finish, blocks wind and snow. The garment’s design maximizes performance and minimizes useless fluff. Other features such as zippered handwarmer pockets (the left pocket doubles as a stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop), a pair of sleek internal drop-in pockets (made without excess, using the backside of the handwarmer pocket bags), a light and simple under-the-helmet hood, and elasticized cuffs and hem round off this functional outdoor jacket.
