Why We Like The Calcite Jacket

From winter backcountry tours to summer alpine treks, the Patagonia Calcite Jacket is what we bring to stay dry when stormy weather hits in the mountains. It features a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX membrane with Paclite Plus technology for a lighter weight and more packability than most waterproof rain shells.

We love that underarm vents cool you off when a grueling trail or summit pitch has you heating up, and adjustments at the cuffs, hem, and  hood keep out the wind when you don't need that extra airflow. Plus, the hood is sized perfectly to fit over an alpine helmet, so you can keep your head shielded from rain, wind, and snow without sacrificing protection.


  • Packable waterproof shell with versatility for any alpine pursuit
  • GORE-TEX membrane is durably waterproof and highly breathable
  • Paclite Plus technology makes it easy to fit into any bag
  • Underarm vents allow for cooling airflow on steep hikes
  • Alpine-helmet compatible hood blocks wind quickly as you climb
  • Adjustable cuffs and hem stop wind from creeping in
  • Water-resistant zippers keep rainwater out of your pockets

That perfect top layer

I've put it through the wringer

The Calcite Jacket is the perfect top shell to a touring kit. It's light, breathable, and SUPER waterproof - making multi-days in the backcountry easier when you need to stay dry. I have this in the coral and gypsum green and love both colors and wear it ice climbing, skiing, and everything in-between.

Didn't get wet once

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Wore it on a morning hike in the humid Texas summer and had an unexpected downpour. Amazingly, I didn't overheat and it kept me completely dry. I generally hate hoods but this one did great at staying out of my face while keeping the rain out too. I keep this along with rain pants in a little stuff sack in my day pack, and it packs down to about the size of my fist. It's a bit heavy compared to some, but I prefer solid construction (and a little bit of fashion) as opposed to the lightest thing in existence. Important to note where the pockets are, they're a little low if you are wearing a hipbelt from a pack.
