Fleecy warmth meets stretchy mobility.

Windy ski tours and chilly climbs call for the Patagonia Women's Adze Hybrid Softshell Jacket. This hybrid softshell blends the warmth and windproof protection of Polartec Windbloc fleece with stretchy breathable panels under the arms, at the sides, and on the cuffs for mobility and extra comfort. Patagonia finished this jacket with a DWR coating to shed raindrops and moisture.

The Adze Hybrid Softshell also features Patagonia's Modified Variable Condition cuffs that stretch over ski gloves or stay snug on your wrists while climbing. The flat-cinch hem adjustment keeps this jacket under your harness, and you can access the zippered handwarmer pockets even with a harness on.

  • Three-layer Polartec Windbloc fleece
  • Softshell panels at underarms and cuffs
  • Durable Water-Resistant finish
  • Modified Variable Conditions Cuffs
  • Flat-cinch hem adjustment

Good for activity in the cold.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

My mother in law is a cross country skier and she was looking for a water/wind proof layer while she was on the trail. I bought her this jacket for Christmas and the reports have been that it seems to be doing the trick. Her only complaint has been that the sleeves are a bit long, although she's still been happy to use.

Zipper hangs up

    I read a review where the person said the zipper would hang up on the fabric when unzipping the jacket, and I thought they just got a bad one. Well the one I ordered did the exact same thing. It's like the little wind flap is made of material that is too thin, and it gets caught in the zipper. I zipped and unzipped it multiple times to see if it would self correct, but it didn't. It would hang up about 3 times every time I unzipped it. I think they need to change the wind flap to a stiffer material and/or make it wider. Very poor design. Needless to say, I returned it.

    Weird sleeve length

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: Large

    This jacket has a LOT going for it. I returned it due to sleeve length. My arms are not ordinarily short, I'm quite average, a little on the tall side actually. But the sleeve length came to my knuckles. I couldn't stand that. Great color (oxblood red) and very comfortable, I'm sure it would be really warm and it's a great looking jacket too. Just don't let the sleeve length surprise you. Patagonia really should have velcro or something to cinch the cuffs for those of us with shorter to average arms. I do own a Patagonia Nano Puff in the same size I ordered in this and have no issues with the sleeve lengthen the Nano Puff fwiw.

    Great Spring Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    This is the perfect weight jacket for transitional weather - warm enough for early spring with a light sweater and through the fall. It's comfortable and runs true to size. It's durable and has been great for especially windy days.

    I love this jacket.

    Great spring/fall jacket. Warm enough, not bulky, keeps the wind out, and did an impressive job the first time I wore it in the rain. Love the big, zippered pockets and oxblood red color. Highly recommend.
