DETAILSThe lightest hard shell Patagonia makes, the 3-layer waterproof/breathable M10 Jacket is a study in minimalism and performance - a must-have for both our alpine and rock climbing ambassadors.
Alpine dash essentials: rope, skeleton rack, M10 Jacket on your back. Itï¿½s an alpine climbing jacket made for those who thrive on thin and technical climbs in full alpine conditions. A study in minimalism, the soft, pliable H2No® Performance Standard nylon ripstop fabric yields surprising durability for its weight and protects against monsoon-season precip and summit ridge gusts. Weï¿½ve kept the design simple - no pit-zips or handwarmer pockets - our ambassadors didnï¿½t want ï¿½em - and gave it a single exterior zippered chest pocket that doubles as a stuffsack (with reinforced clip-in loop). Details include sonically welded seams with the narrowest possible tape, watertight zippers, a microfleece-lined neck and chin, and cuffs that adjust with minimalist hook-and-loop closures. A single pull adjusts the helmet-compatible hood (with laminated visor) and a drawcord hem blocks out spindrift backdraft. Slim fit for technical use over light-to-medium layers.
Because Deluge DWR is so effective at repelling light rain and snow, we can forego the use of a waterproof barrier on Patagonia soft shells thus improving breathability tremendously. When used on Patagonia hard shells, in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the Deluge DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
