A great jacket for skiing/snowboarding or to wear around town on cold days. The diagonal chevron quilting minimizes bulk and the cut is very complimentary to my figure. Patagonia’s Deluge water repellant treatment keeps me dry and warm all day. The premium goose down (600- and 800-fill-power) and the insulated hood with the fleece-lined collar is an effective shield from the wind. I was surprised to find extra perks like a stretchy, removable powder skirt to keep out the snow and a pocket on the chest for easy access to my iPod with a cutout for earphones. This jacket keeps me at the perfect temperature regardless of the weather conditions.
