Durable alpine-worthy protection at a fraction of the weight.

Moving fast in full-on alpine conditions requires a balance of low weight and durable protection—in other words, it requires the Patagonia Men’s M10 Jacket. Three layers of H2No Performance waterproof, windproof, and breathable nylon ripstop with a DWR finish fend off nasty weather while keeping a low-profile, slim silhouette for efficient climbing. Sonically welded seams with super-narrow tape and watertight zips ensure against drafts and leaks; and a single-pull adjustable hood with laminated visor keeps your head protected and your vision clear.

  • Lightweight, 3-layer H2No Performance Standard Shell 15D nylon ripstop with Deluge DWR finish gives durable waterproof, windproof, breathable protection
  • Sonically welded seams and waterproof zippers seal out the elements for assured dry comfort
  • Slim fit features strategically placed seams for tons of comfy movement without bulk
  • A single pull adjusts the helmet-compatible hood with laminated visor for fine-fitting head protection
  • Drawcord hem blocks out spindrift backdraft
  • Microfleece-lined neck and chin and cuffs that adjust with minimalist hook-and-loop closures for cozy, non-chafing comfort
  • Chest pocket with watertight, coated zipper protects and secures essentials and doubles as a stuff sack for convenient portability

Torso too short, hood too small

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: Medium

I was super stoked to get the M10. I've always heard super rad things about it, boasting its place as among the lightest 3-layer hardshells on the market. However, the fit really bothers me. Torso is too short, and hood is too small.

I'm 6'2, 180 lbs. I've always been a medium in Patagonia. The chest and arms fit great, it allows me to layer a R1 hoody underneath and if necessary an UL down jacket. However, the torso is too short. I don't have an especially long torso or anything, but my other Patagonia pieces in size medium are longer than this M10. Seriously. When I layer the Patagonia UL down jacket underneath it sticks out on the bottom, or worse, the M10 rides up. It's weird. When I have a harness on, it rides up and out of the harness and has a hard time staying tucked in.

Next, the hood is too small. The description says the M10 has a helmet compatible hood but there's no way I can layer a helmet underneath. Granted, I have a bigger than average head but previous helmet-compatible hoods worked for me (Super Alpine works). I have to layer it awkwardly underneath my helmet but it's in a weird zone between too big to go under a helmet and too small to go over.

Otherwise, the feel of the jacket is really cool. It's really interesting that a 3-layer jacket can be this thin. The lack of pockets doesn't bother me, if it does than you're probably looking at the wrong category of jackets. The single chest pocket is really all you need. How often do you really stick things in your pockets when you're climbing? If you want a place for your gel or phone, just put it in the chest pocket. If you want somewhere to put your hands, then the new M10 (2016) has that.

Overall, if you're able to get a great deal on this (I was) then take it if you can deal with its faults. If you want the best hardshell that is equally light, take a look at the Arcteryx Alpha FL if you can afford it. I'd still stick with this since it's way better value and Patagonia will help repair all the damage you inflict on this jacket (you will tear it up if you use it right).

lightest 3 layer rain jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This thing is light. Super light. For a three layer shell it is the lightest coat I have ever seen. For all that it is bomb water and wind protection. This is the jacket hiding in the top of your pack that you hope you never use but are damn glad you have when you need it. It’s a no frills barrier between you and the wet minimalized to save weight and increase packability. For all the backpackers, bike commuters and wet city strollers this is a heck of an insurance policy.

Just like Colin Haley said

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This shell is the dopest, flyest s*** you will ever put on your body. When the box arrived in the mail, thought it was empty. It was just too light to have the several Patagonia items I ordered in it. When I put on the M10, it's like it wasn't there. It's ultra light and super packable. No bigger than a tennis ball when fully compressed in a ziplock bag. It packs into its chest pocket, and can be compressed even further, so just throw it into the pack without hesitation. It is a little big baggy, however I intend to wear plenty of layers under it, and a pack over, so it's perfect. It is a bit expensive, so if you can snag this on sale, I would definitely go for it. Used a discount to really whittle down the price on mine, super stoked. If you are still wondering if it's worth it, check out outdoorgearlab's review of it, and go from there. Final thoughts: If you are looking for an extremely light, packable shell for backpacking or climbing, this is money. If you want something a little thicker, check out Patagonia's other Jackets, or get a thicker mid-layer.

Rain rain go away

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I love this jacket because it's light weight and compact. The ability to zip the jacket into its own chest pocket is huge for me. I mainly bought this as a light weight alpine/rain jacket and it's been doing its job so far. It repels rain well and isn't too bad at being a wind breaker either. I'm a little concerned about the durability when it comes down to climbs. I feel like the cuffs might get shredded easily but only more days will tell. For now it's a go to spring and summer waterproof layer. I'm 5'8" 155 and always wear a small in Patagonia coats. This jacket is no different and is comfortable with my size small nano air inside or outside the coat. The hood fits nicely over my climbing helmet as well. The only reason I haven't given it five stars is because with only a handful of days in it I haven't gotten the big picture on how well it breaths and how long I'll stay dry in an extended storm. So far this is par for the Patagonia course because it performs... Always worth the extra cash for quality gear in my world.

Pocket zip end design fault

There is actually design fault in the chest pocket zip. There is nothing to stop the zipper at top. That will beak the fribbit. A better way is set a "raft" at the top end of the pocket for zip parking

Top Notch Minimalist Piece of Gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The M10 is fantastic for lightweight excursions. I pair it with the R1, nano hoody, and between all of the pieces I haven't found a situation where I was uncomfortable. Keep a big puffy around, and you're sure to be safe.

The m10 breathes incredibly for a rain shell, so even in warm weather you can rock it without sweating buckets.

It basically doubles as a wind shirt and rain jacket. But be wary, there aren't any handwarmer pockets; it's built for movement.

Great Hardshell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This thing is ultralight, very comfortable, and super durable. Definitely a well designed product top to bottom. I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone looking for an extremely light, strong, packable hardshell. Comparing this jacket to my Marmot Spire hardshell is like apples and oranges. It is significantly lighter yet feels just as tough in its construction. Other reviews have named this the best hardshell jacket on the market - after my thorough testing I would have to agree.

Patagonia M10-Great do-it-all jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Initially bought this as a super light alpine jacket however this has ended up being used solely for year round commuting to work by bike or running.

Light weight, breathes well and the bright yellow/green is super visible. Also love the helmet compatible hood and pit zips.

The jacket has held up very well to daily use over the last year.

I am 5'8" 165lbs and the medium fits perfectly. For sizing reference, I also wear a medium in Arcteryx and Patagonia jackets.

XL fits a tall dude nicely

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Got the XL on sale and it fits nicely, sleeves and body are plenty long. I'm 6'4, 220lbs. It's got a little extra room, but it still feels athletic fitting. Not like the ridiculously baggy Arc'teryx jacket I tried on before this. Like the other reviewer, this also replaces a EB BC-200 Large Tall jacket whose zipper breaks every year, but is otherwise a good coat. XL weighs 9.1oz by my scale.

M10 Jacket

    Pretty stoked on this jacket. Just had it briefly so far but it has served well as my emergency shell for ski touring here in the coast mountains. Packs really light. It replaces my Eddie Bauer BC200 Jacket and it is bigger, but lighter and takes less space in the pack - perfect for skimo missions. Cuts the wind and sheds rain well. Fit is good. I am usually a medium and the medium is slightly baggy but good to layer over. Happy so far!

    I'm debating between the M10 and the Super Pluma. I am looking for a do everything shell from ice climbing to skiing to flyfishing. Thoughts?

    tough call, both are awesome, and both will have similar weather protection and breathability (top notch). M10 is more of a minimalist piece where lightweight and packablity are it's strengths. Super Pluma is a little more of a fully featured all around jacket, but still nice and lightweight.

    Sizing question: I normally would get a small (I'm 5'5" 140lbs), but if I want to layer a small puffy underneath it, should I size up to a medium?

    I got the medium and as soon as I put it on I knew it was too big. While there was ample space for a puffy midlayer, the sleves were too long. Returned it no problem, and got the small which has has worked amazingly so far, and I am able to fit it over my synthetic puffy midlayer.
