It's windy and wet? Huh, hadn't noticed.
When weather takes a turn for the worse during a ski mountaineering or alpine climbing adventure, be grateful that you're wearing the Patagonia Men's Super Alpine Jacket. This big-mountain slayer keeps you warm and dry with its waterproof and windproof 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric. When you put the hood up, don’t worry about low visibility—the laminated visor helps you see the next ridge or belay ledge. The sleeves won't slide up due to the pleated Gasket Dry Cuffs, and the body of the jacket won't rise up even when you're reaching high up for that perfect axe placement because of the gusseted underarm panels.
- 3-layer nylon Gore-Tex Pro fabric is waterproof, windproof, breathable, and durable for the coldest and wettest conditions and harsh, rugged environments
- Gusseted underarm panels help this regular-fit jacket stay in place while you reach up for the highest axe placements
- Watertight-coated and laminated Slim Zips close this jacket up tight without increasing bulk
- Pockets are press pleated to increase storage capabilities without adding seams
- Pleated Gasket Dry cuffs tighten down on your wrists so heat cannot escape and snow cannot enter
- Hood is helmet-compatible with a laminated visor for better visibility during bad weather
- Cord locks embedded in hood for quick and easy adjustment

Where does this jacket come too in...
Where does this jacket come too in length?
Im torn between this and Triolet, where is better in your opinion?
I will be wearing this jacket for skiing
This jacket will be about 29.5 inches in length, a solid inch longer than the equivalent Triolet jacket. As far as which jacket will out perform while skiing, that's a tough call as both are designed for performance. For me I would probably make my decision based on pockets.

This jacket loves glaciers
