The Patagonia Women's Knifeblade Jacket probably has the toughest sounding name of any jacket. Unless there's a Brass Knuckle jacket or maybe a Broken Bottle jacket out there somewhere. It's a fitting name in regards to the toughness of the jacket and the fact that nature doesn't want to mess with it. The Knifeblade's shell is made of Power Shield® Pro fabric, a soft shell technological breakthrough (bridging the gap between soft and hard shells), which gives enhanced wind/weather protection without a loss in stretch or breathability (aka, it's magic. You'll be wearing magic). So take the Knifeblade jacket out to full exposure, even on a knife's edge trail (where the wind/rain breaks upon the trail like crashing waves), and you'll feel like you're just on a normal stroll through the woods.
Patagonia Women's Knifeblade Jacket.
Combining storm-level protection with optimal breathability, the Knifeblade Jacket is a highly water-resistant performance stretch soft shell, built with lightweight, moisture-shedding Polartec® Power Shield® Pro fabric. Wherever mountains glisten with frozen ribbons, imaginations ignite with possibility. An ambassador favorite, our premier soft shell for ice and alpine climbing now comes in a full-zip version for added versatility. The Knifeblade’s Power Shield® Pro fabric - a breakthrough in soft-shell technology - fills the gap between traditional soft and hard shells, offering unprecedented stretch, breathability and wind protection in a water-resistant 3-layer package. The Knifeblade has a pliable feel, slides easily over layers, and is durable against big-route abuse. It has three water-resistant zippered pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, placed above pack and harness waistbelts), low-profile cuff closures and Touch Point System™ embedded cord locks in the hood and hem for quick adjustment. The helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood with laminated visor provides optimal visibility in bad conditions. Full-reach gusseted underarm panels allow overhead mobility.
