Patagonia Men's Stretch Rainshadow Jacket Black - Size - Medium. If they were smart, those guys that stand outside in hurricanes to report on the weather would all wear this jacket.Don't get us wrong, we're not saying storm reporters aren't smart, but dodging flying two-by-fours, falling trees and other wind-borne debris just to broadcast that we shouldn't be doing that might disqualify them from joining Mensa. We will say that you'd be smart to consider Patagonia's Stretch Rainshadow Jacket for your adventures. The advantage lies in its use of a 2.5-layer H2No Performance Standard shell fabric. Waterproof, windproof, breathable and highly packable, you'll be covered for that quick downpour while exploring the Amazon basin (where you'll find the largest rainforest in the world), pushing through fresh powder to find your backcountry hut before dark or taking a quick sail around the buoys after work. 100% nylon ripstop shell. Imported.Wonderfully WaterproofThe Stretch Rainshadow Jacket features a water-repellent 2.5-layer H2No Performance Standard 30-denier fabric shell of 2.2oz. nylon ripstop that's lightweight, supple and stretchy. This shell fabric is combined with a waterproof, yet breathable membrane, a protective top coat barrier and a durable water repellent (DWR) finish. This design allows the jacket to be constructed without the need for an internal lining fabric. A distinctive raised print layer is applied for decreased surface tension and increased moisture management. The DWR finish not only repels light rain and snow and decreases drying time, it also keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so the breathable barrier can do its job—keeping you dry on the inside and out.Perfect PackingBecause its 2.5-layer H2No Performance Standard shell fabric is so lightweight and compressible, the Stretch Rainshadow Jacket makes a good choice for backpacking, alpine climbing and backcountry skiing and snowboarding.
