Patagonia Ascensionist Jacket
The Ascensionist Jacket is built for the mountains. It has the perfect balance between being lightweight and durable so you can move fast through the mountains, it's the lightest technical shell Patagonia makes. It has GORE-TEX Active fabric with C-KNIT® Backer Technology which is a lightweight, super breathable, waterproof 3-way fabric construction for high-intensity activities. The Ascensionist Jacket is easy to move in because of the C-KNIT construction makes the jacket stretch and breath making it easy to move fast over difficult terrain. The hood has a laminated visor which fits over a helmet and adjusts at two points so you can get the perfect fit. It even has full mobility sleeves which allow you to swing a tool or coil a rope without getting in your way. Other features include a waterproof chest pocket for valuables, two handwarmer pockets, a stretch catch-all pocket and an intuitive Cohaesive™ cord-lock system shuts out the elements.
