Built with a recycled/recyclable 3-layer polyester fabric, the packable Cloud Ridge Jacket combines H2No® Performance Standard waterproof/breathable protection and next-to-skin comfort for wet and sticky conditions.
Depending on where you live, soaking storms can be a novel occurrence or simply wetness as usual (we’re talking to you, PNW, Eastern Seaboard, B.C., Japan…). For those who move regularly through super-humid zones, the new Cloud Ridge Jacket balances reliable H2No® Performance Standard protection with environmental impact in a simple yet robust jacket. Thoughtfully built with a 100% recycled 3-layer polyester fabric and a recyclable polyester barrier and backer, it offers waterproof/breathable protection and next-to-skin comfort in wet, sticky conditions. The 2-way-adjustable, alpine helmet–compatible hood with laminated visor rolls down and stows away with a simplified cord-and-hook design, while soft microfleece on the neck and chin goes easy on your skin. The watertight center zipper has a minimal interior storm flap and two ventilating mesh hand pockets (with coated, watertight zippers) that sit between a pack’s waistbelt and sternum strap. With hook-and-loop cuff closures, a drawcord hem and stuffsack with clip-in loop.

This lightweight jacket is excellent for casual wear as well as hiking, and it serves as an excellent outer shell for skiing. The H2No technology and recycled polyester construction offer protection, comfort, and environmental sustainability. Key features are the two big pockets which can be accessed on top of a hipbelt, a large hood that is alpine compatible, and a stuff sack for easy storage. Furthermore, the elastic drawcords and watertight zippers allow you to keep out precipitation. The only downside to this jacket is that it does not have pit zips, the pockets can be opened to increase ventilation but if pit zips are an essential feature for you I would suggest looking at the Patagonia Triolet Jacket or the Patagonia Torrentshell jacket.
