Built for the best days.

When old man winter dumps a few feet of blower pow and the temperatures get borderline nasty, grab your Patagonia Rubicon Rider Jacket and enjoy winter's bounty. The insulated Rubicon Jacket comes complete with Patagonia's Thermogreen synthetic insulation for days when the cost of all that light, dry powder is frigid temperatures. Patagonia designed the Rubicon Rider jacket with a two-layer ripstop polyester shell to increase storm performance and protect from abrasion and a DWR finish to shed light rain and snow.

The helmet-compatible, adjustable hood locks in warmth and features soft microfleece panels at the back of the neck and chin. Patagonia also equipped the Rubicon with a sleek, low-profile powder skirt that stays in place whether secured or not. The powder skirt features a loop of nylon webbing that connects to any compatible Patagonia Snow pants to form a single powder barrier. The Rubicon jacket's fit is relaxed for easy layering. A slew of pockets keep your stuff (everything from climbing skins to your MP3 player) safe and secure while you lap the chair or a favorite backcountry shot, and zippered underarm vents make it easy to dump heat when you need to. Patagonia finished off the Rubicon Rider with a Recco reflector, which makes rescue easier if you're involved in an in-bounds avalanche.
