Shoot for the summit.
Built for belaying in below-freezing temps and waiting out blizzards at base camp in comfort, the Patagonia Men's Hyper Puff Hooded Jacket delivers serious warmth in a lightweight and stretchy package that's primed for alpine assaults. Patagonia's warmest synthetic insulation keeps you toasty while staying light and packable, and the entire garment flexes for easy movement in the mountains.
Part of the secret to this jacket's alpine prowess is its innovative HyperDAS insulation, which maximizes dead air space (DAS) for greater heat retention, less weight, and superior compressibility. There's also twice as much insulation in the torso to keep your core toasty without adding bulk or restricting mobility in other areas. Pertex Quantum fabric offers featherweight toughness, shields your from wind and snow, and stretches to accommodate climbing movements. Patagonia also included a stuff sack for easy storage in your pack at warmer lower elevations, so you can keep it neatly tucked away until you have to brave the weather near the summit.

Like wearing sleeping bag
Super warm, feel like you are in a different world when you get the hood on. Hood fits nicely over a ski helmet, goggles cover the rest.

How Good Is It???
We take an in depth look at this brand new jacket from Patagonia, and break down some of the things that we like/don't like.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought: Xxl
Typically order XXL but this thing was enormous. Buyer beware - they’ll charge you to exchange it which i think is utter BS for an online company in 2017. My first time ordering through them - likely the last. Very warm jacket for our Minnesota winters.
Curious: whats the difference between this and the hyper puff parka? looks like the parka is heavier; does it have a bigger/longer cut but the same amount of insulation "per baffle," or does the hoody just have less insulation?
