Built with unwavering attention to descent-oriented details, Patagonia's Untracked Jacket features a wonderfully soft, supple (and quiet) 3-layer stretch fabric construction, a fully dialed yet refined, low-bulk design and unsurpassed windproof and waterproof/breathable performance for riding anywhere, anytime. Treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish the fabric keeps moisture and wet snow out, this finish also keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated and increases durability.
A moisture-managing brushed interior lining in the upper body increases warmth and comfort without extra bulk and a slick, snow-shedding nylon lining in the lower body provides a smooth glide when layering. Pit zips allow a cooling airflow for steamy days, but when it blows, a fully adjustable, low-profile powder skirt with a single snap seals in your heat (includes a webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia® Snow pants). The helmet-compatible, two-way-adjustable hood has a soft, laminated visor to preserve visibility along with the Cohaesive™ cord-lock system that embeds cord locks in the hood and hem to eliminate loose ends and provide easy adjustability. Coated, watertight zips with slim zip installation reduce bulk and weight. Pockets include two handwarmers, one chest with a secure media pocket and cable routing, one pass pocket on the left forearm, one internal drop-in for goggles and gloves, and one internal stash (for your après-ski brew). Includes an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector.
Since 1985, Patagonia has pledged 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. 1% for the Planet is an alliance of businesses that understand the necessity of protecting the natural environment. They understand that profit and loss are directly linked to its health, and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry.
Patagonia's mission statement is to "build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis." Clear as day! They work hard to produce innovative, high-quality, simple and utile apparel that help explorers and outdoor enthusiasts achieve their dreams.
