No matter what way it presents itself, precipitation is simply just condensed, wet globules falling from the sky. Built for those who prefer to keep the invasive phenomenon at bay while embarking on alititude-gaining adventures, the Patagonia Women's Stretch Rainshadow Jacket provides glorified performance and protection against Mother Nature's harshest forms of moisture. Crafted with the waterproof yet breathable H2No fabric and the additional protection of a DWR treatment, this full-zip jacket is both lightweight and stretchy, so it avoids impeding your mobility even while it rebuffs rain, sleet, and snow. A helmet-compatible hood is easily rolled down and stowed should the sun come out to play. The hood is also fully equipped with a laminated visor and a single-pull adjustment tab, making on-the-go modifications easy as pie. In addition to its current waterproof membrane and DWR treatment, the Rainshadow is built with watertight zippers, including the underarm ventilation zips. The self-stuff chest pocket, minimalist hook-and-loop wrist closures, and dual-adjust drawcord hem seal the deal--or rather, seal you in for a good time.
