PatagoniaTriolet Jacket - Women's

Jack-of-all-things-alpine.

The Patagonia Women's Triolet Jacket utilizes a three-layer Gore-Tex polyester fabric to deliver tough, waterproof, breathable protection from high alpine weather. While protecting you from the piercing winds and frozen precipitation while on high, this jacket lets any sweaty moisture that's built up escape to keep you dry and comfortably warm. The Optimal Visibility Hood with laminated visor fits over any sized helmet and is two-way adjustable to deliver enhanced visibility in even the worse conditions. If the built-in breathability of this jacket isn't enough, Patagonia installed watertight, two-way zip vents in the gusseted underarm panels to let you dump excess body heat without raising the body of the jacket. A dual-adjust drawcord hem seals out weather, while the elasticized strap at the back connects to any Patagonia Snow pants to prevent snow from getting in when you take a spill.

No Nonsense Technical Shell

Got this jacket for my girlfriend - she is a medium in everything, including this jacket! She tried out a few different similar shell options before deciding to go with this - she will ski at resorts and backcountry tour with it and generally loves it.

Here's what she likes about it:
- Fit is spot on and fits well for her. Its a no BS, durable technical shell. A lot of the jackets had funny proportions for arms or were boxy and this fits well for her.
- 3 layer Gore-tex holds up to nasty wet, weather. With the variable condition season that Utah has had so far, this has proved vital. Also, the 75D protects against random tree branches from ripping it.
- Pit zips allow for dumping heat when touring, relatively easy to use.

What she doesn't like about them:
- The hood does fit over helmets, but doesn't easily move with the turning of the neck.
- Not a deal breaker for her, but she likes powder skirts and this doesn't have one.

If you have any questions on it or are a guy looking to get their chica an awesome ski shell, this is a great contender. Feel free to reach me at my direct line 801.204.4547 or email cojohnson@backcountry.com and would be happy to help!

No Nonsense Technical Shell

Gore-Tex is worth the splurge!

I've been wanting a Gore-Tex jacket for awhile, after having a few winter days last season that forced me into the lodge because I was soaked to the bone! I love this Patagonia shell for three reasons, 1) the fit is great -- just tailored enough to not look overly baggy. 2) So many awesome and awesomely placed pockets! 3) Gore-Tex -- when the weather gets tough, this jacket is tougher.

I usually wear a XS or small in Patagonia -- I have a XS nanopuff -- and I bought this in a small. It's a little loose, which is ideal for layering purposes.

Perfect Shell

    This is my first 3L Gortex shell and I did roll tons of research trying to find the right jacket. I am so happy with this one! First, the fit is fabulous - it looks great over a baselayer on a really warm day or over 3 layers on a freezing cold day. It's slightly fitted without having an overly feminine appearance, it's a tad longer in the back to help keep your bum warm on cold days, it has a nice large hood that even fits over my helmet, and 3 nice external pockets. I use the inner pouch to stash a beanie. Keeps me warm and dry on powder days, plus I've received a lot of compliments on the mountain which a nice bonus.

    Perfect Shell

    Go-to Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great, lightweight shell that my wife uses mostly for skiing. Works well layered with a down mid for warmth. Super comfortable, and great water/wind resistance.

    Fits true to size and looks fantastic!

    After years of insulated ski jackets, this was my first real shell purchase ever. I was caught between several great options, but in the end, picked the Triolet for its versatility and slightly more affordable price, and I'm thrilled with it. I got it to use primarily for skiing, but the light, stretchy fabric would make it a great outer layer for running or hiking in wet weather as well. The length is perfect for keeping my butt dry on storm days, and I haven't missed the absence of a powder skirt or pass pocket. The shaped brim in the hood is a great touch, and the pit zips and length of the sleeves have all been great for skiing. I expect to have this around for a long time!

    Tried and true.

    Long story short, the Triolet is an amazing shell. I have the 2011/2012 version of this jacket and it is undoubtedly amazing. I've never owned such a bombproof jacket. I'm having a hard time believing that it's coming up on 5 years of wear and tear because admittedly it looks never worn when the reality is, is that I wear it all the dang time. Initially I picked this jacket up after a tumultuous relationship with a funky H2n0 hybrid shell and was pleasantly surprised at how versatile it was. I wanted it for very basic reasons, you know, hiking, riding bikes around town, trail running, climbing, etc and I've been incredibly impressed with its performance since then. It's transformed into the Do-Everything shell (from hiking, biking, trail running, climbing, to resort skiing) thanks to its sleek, athletic construction and dependable windproof and waterproof qualities. I can't get over the fit - however I have noticed that the new Triolet runs a little larger and longer than my edition. The hood is super easy to adjust, as is the hem. The chest and hand pockets are harness friendly and the underarm zippers are relatively gloved-hand friendly. I have Nikwax-washed this jacket a two times since buying it, but I do wash it at least once a season to reboot the Gore-Tex material. I highly, highly, highly recommend this jacket if you're looking for a Jane of All Trades!!!

    The best

    If you want a jacket for just about anything, this is the one to get. Amazing quality. This jacket is perfect in every way and protects you from all of the different elements. I have only started to use it but think it will last for quite some time.

    I have the 2012 version of this jacket, but it is without question the toughest, most versatile shell you could ask for. I have used it as a rain jacket while hiking, backpacking and trail running, as a badass wind layer while nordic skiing and mountaineering, and in combination with a puffy as a full-on jacket for downhill skiing. (I bought a size up from what I normally would to be able to pack layers underneath). With 3 layers of Gore-Tex, this baby stays dry much longer and insulates better than your typical rain shell. For warm weather pursuits, this jacket breathes well, and if you need a little extra vent--pit zips to the rescue! The hood is helmet, pom-pom beanie, and top-knot compatible! I do not leave for any type of adventure, regardless of the season, without the Triolet jacket stuffed into my pack. I have used mine heavily for 3 years and it's still holding up like a champ--that's Patagonia for you. The price tag may be higher than a lighter shell, but it's worth it--you are getting a rain jacket, wind shell, and warm layer all in one--and it won't quit before you do!

    Awesome jacket

    Used this jacket all season working on an expedition boat in antarctica. Super super shell that kept me dry in pouring horizontal rain and for hours at a time driving zodiac boats.
    The blue colour is awesome and the fit is really great. Its plenty large for as much layering as needed.
    The only caveat is the velcro on the sleeves dont seem to be sewn properly as they start to unravel. I'm hoping it was just a dud I got. Backcountry warranty exchanged my jacket no problem after the velcros really came undone. Looking forward to testing the new one in the arctic this summer!

    I ordered this jacket to use as a multi season bomb proof outer layer for snow, wind, and and rain conditions. I've gone out with it a few times in all of the above weather and it has been fantastic . The material is durable and protects me from all the elements. It's very warm with just a down puffy jacket underneath. The pockets are easily accessible and I love the one handed hood and waist adjusters. The hood fits well with and without a helmet. I Got a medium ( I'm 5'5" 130lbs) and its a touch big but works well for layering. Overall, I love this jacket it will be my go to for just about every activity!
