Patagonia Women's Dual Aspect Jacket
The Patagonia Women's Dual Aspect Jacket is a 3-layer H2No hardshell designed for alpine climbing. Alongside sustainability-centric features like a PFC-free DWR finish and Fair Trade Certified sewing, the Patagonia Women's Dual Aspect Jacket features a climbing/belay-ready design that includes underarm gussets for enhanced mobility when reaching for holds, a two-way zipper for better access to your belay loop, a helmet-compatible hood, and a RECCO reflector. Made for stormy climbing in the worst possible weather.

3-layer H2No® Performance Standard fabrics are completely waterproof, windproof, and breathable built to withstand long term exposure in extreme environments. All products bearing the H2No® label have been vigorously tested for durability in Patagonia's "24 Killer Wash", a process used to simulate years of use and abuse in a short period of time. This process consists of exposing the fabric to severe thrashing in a modified washing machine for a continuous 24-hours. The H2No® Performance Standard for waterproof shell garments is 20,000 MM before, and 10,000 MM after Patagonia's Killer Wash test (per JIS L 1092 B). This fabric features a Durable Water Repellent treatment.
Ripstop fabrics are made by weaving a nylon thread in interlocking, square patterns through a base material. (You can spot its distinguishable appearance in fabrics with a raised box or diamond pattern.) As a result, rips and tears, unable to bypass this nylon barrier, are confined to one very small area and will not spread throughout the fabric.
