Patagonia Men's Storm Jacket.
With an improved fit, updated design and H2No Performance Standard waterproof/breathable protection, this classic Patagonia jacket is ideal for light mountaineering or skiing. The Storm Jacket has kept us dry in torrential rain and mountain blizzards for 20 years. And we just made it better. It still staves off the most determined moisture, outside and in, with its 2-layer H2No Performance Standard hard-shell construction (100% recycled polyester double ripstop), waterproof/breathable barrier with a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish, sealed seams and a hanging mesh-and-taffeta liner. But improved fabric (100% recycled polyester double ripstop) shaves significant weight, and an updated design and fit make the jacket trimmer overall. Sleeker storm flaps cover all external zippers and give it a clean look, and soft microfleece lines the inner chin. Finer points: a helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood, waterproof pit zips, one internal security pocket and two handwarmer pockets with pressed pleats for expandable storage. Cuffs secure with self-fabric hook-and-loop tabs while a trim, minimal storm flap protects the center-front zip and a dual-adjust drawcord hem seals in warmth. 2-layer H2No Performance Standard polyester ripstop waterproof/breathable fabric is soft, supple and repels moisture. Helmet-compatible, 2-way adjustable hood; soft microfleece-lined chin guard. Center-front zipper with minimal storm flap seals out snow. PU-coated-waterproof pit zips. Two harness- and pack-compatible handwarmer pockets have reverse coil zippers and storm flaps to keep items dry; pressed pleats allow for expanded storage; one internal security pocket. Self-fabric hook-and-loop cuff closure. Dual-adjust drawcord hem seals out snow. H2No Performance Standard shell: 2-layer, 4.2-oz 75-denier 100% polyester ripstop with a waterproof/breathable barrier. Pockets, inside torso and hood: 100% polyester tricot warp knit. Shell and lining have a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish. 663 g (23.4 oz).
You've been eyeballing those clouds all afternoon, so when they finally open up and release a load of fresh pow, you and your Patagonia Storm Jacket will be ready. With a trusty layer of watetproof, breathable H2No fabric between you and the fresh offerings, body temperature will be the furthest thing from your mind.

This morning I took the Storm jacket out into negative degree weather (and -20 wind chills) for a winter morning hike. Underneath I wore a base compression layer followed by a smartwool top and then a 800 down shell. At no point during the hike was I cold around my core, and the only moisture I had to deal with was my sweat trapped on the inside. That said, the storm jacket is breatheable and offered me great waterproof protection. I haven't worn it in a downpour but don't really plan to -- this is my winter shell. Compared to the more expensive Gore-Tex options out there (such as the Triolet) the Storm offers waterproofing and a slightly warmer shell. Perfect for winter outings.
The day I got this jacket two things happened.
It drop to just above freezing, and it rained for 5 days straight and then snowed for the last 2 days of the week. I biked threw it everyday to and from work, and let me tell you this jacket gets the job done.
Not only did it keep me dry and toasty (I wore it over a tee shirt and a hoody) but it breaths surprisingly well.
A perfect jacket to handle North Dakotas cold season
The only thing I could think of to make this jacket any better was if it came with a beard.
