Patagonia Men’s SnowDrifter Jacket
Built for high-output comfort and motion, our lightweight, backcountry-ready SnowDrifter Jacket combines the uphill performance of a stretch fabric with serious storm protection to keep you dry and comfortable wherever you go in your powder pursuit. The H2No™ Performance Standard shell fabric is made of a limber 3-layer, 70% recycled stretch polyester ripstop that allows the full range of motion and blocks wind, moisture and hard use. We treat the fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to prevent saturation and increase abrasion resistance. A moisture-managing liner of soft polyester knit increases comfort and provides a smooth glide when layering. The helmet-compatible, two-way-adjustable hood has a soft, laminated visor to preserve visibility along with the Cohaesive™ cord-lock system that embeds cord locks in the hood and hem to eliminate loose ends and provide easy adjustability. Pit zips allow a cooling airflow for steamy days; a fully adjustable, low-profile powder skirt (includes a webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia® Snow pants) and adjustable, low-profile cuffs seal out cold air and snow on blower days. Pockets include two handwarmers; one chest with a secure media pocket and cable routing; one pass pocket on the left forearm; one internal drop-in for goggles and gloves. Includes an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

The construction of 2-Layer GORE-TEX® Products is unique. A GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to an outer material, then combined with a free-flowing lining. The benefit: a soft, lightweight garment that keeps you dry and lets you move freely.
The GORE-TEX® membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. These tiny holes are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside. But these same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so your body’s perspiration is able to escape and you won’t feel clammy or uncomfortable inside your jacket.
bluesign® Approved Fabric
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for end customers.
