Code: WINTER20

Description

A puffy for the cold and the wet.

Patagonia's warmest freeride Jacket, the The Women’s Primo Down, is serious about every aspect of winter riding—weather protection, warmth, and breathability. Welded seams and waterproof nylon fabric block moisture so you don’t have to limit your puffy to clear-sky days, and ventilating mesh panels suspend the 700-fill down liner so you won’t overheat on tough mogul runs (air circulates between liner and shell). Snap the powder skirt, stash your MP3 player in the insulated left chest pocket, and pull up the lightly insulated hood.

Here's what others have to say...

Can this jacket be used for mountaineering...

Can this jacket be used for mountaineering in the Himalayas? Will in keep one warm in -10degree temps and protect against wind chill?

It really depends. The usual setup I've seen is base layers, mid layers, shell, and then down parka over all of that. So you deploy the parka for belays and when you need warmth. This would kind of meld the system but you may find it too warm for really high output activity with no way to dump that heat since the down is built into it. In all honesty I would likely stick with a traditional layering system and get a warmer parka to throw over the top of all of it.

great question. The Primo Down would definitely do the job of keeping you warm, and sheltered from the windy in some very cold temps. The Gore-tex shell is fully windproof, and the down sweater lining will give you extra warmth.

Not to mention GoreTex waterproofing! It has excellent pit-zips to help dump excessive heat, quickly. I have posted some close-ups of its interior on the 'new' Pat. Primo men's page.

By all means layer, as you would for any jacket in most any situ. Size accordingly.

This jacket (with proper layers) will take your there, and back again with no problems!

Warmest ski coat ever!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the warmest ski coat I have ever owned! Even in sub zero temps, my core stays toasty warm! Lots of great interior and exterior pockets. I highly recommend this jacket! I even wear it running in the winter!

Unzip the vents on a warm day and it's the down sweater. Driving freezing rain, pull up the hood and this is the jacket Patagonia is famous for. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

the BEST jacket for cold/skiing/boarding

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned one, then two, of these jackets ever since Patagonia came out with them. It is not puffy, yet it is incredibly warm and I am easily cold! It layers nicely (I go up a size) , and it has pit zips for when you get a little too hot for exertion. Both of mine were stolen this year and I am here buying a new one. It is very expensive, even on sale, but it keeps me warm, and that makes the difference between loving the mountain or wanting to go home! I have used it for skiing, snowboarding and other cold winter outdoor activities. The zipper did seem a little small and light for such a jacket, but I have never had a problem with it. I skied in temps of - 10 F and lower and , with layers, it kept me warm and happy. Even my big puffy down jacket does not do as well, and it is too bulky to move around in.

Warmest Gore-tex ski jacket

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Down Sweater meets Waterproof! Super warm ski jacket with all the ski features, powder skirt, pit zips, drop in and security pocket, electronic/media pocket,and removable hood. Also, the Primo series from Patagonia was the first company to ever use a recycled polyester face fabric with Gore-tex!

I have long arms, broad shoulders but am thin (5'5", 115-120 lbs) and normally wear Medium in other outdoor brands. I've never owned a Patagonia jacket, but want to buy this one. Small or medium?

Best Answer Responded on

I would go Small Megan... but if you need measurements to verify, just call Patagonia mail order customer service and they can look up the across the back length and length of arms.

Really Enjoying this Jacket

I really love this jacket. I ended up getting it to cope with the Nebraska winters and I'm glad I did. Look around and wait until it goes on sale.

Jacket has great construction, and although it's a down jacket, it isn't as "poofy" as some can be. Personally, I think the zippers are great, as is the weatherproofing take around them. I'm certainly a fan. Patagonia makes great products and backcountry.com couldn't be a better company to purchase this jacket from.

Disappointing

The style is nice, but the zippers aren't worth the price. They gave out and split after one season.

The fabric also turns stiff and cold below minus 20 celcius.

Responded on

The 'stiffness' is the water-proof GoreTex fabric, just the nature of it; worth the inconvenience when it's cold & wet.

As for zips giving out, ours haven't, maybe you can get a exchange from BackCountry...no "questions asked, no time limits"? Worth a try!

is the hood detachable?

is the hood detachable?

Best Answer Responded on

The hood IS removable - perhaps it was not in the past, but currently you may remove it.

Responded on

My guy just got his, and no, the hood is NOT detachable. Because I too am interested in this awsome jacket, and whether or not the hood comes off, I inquired at the "Patagonia" site: They said NO, the hoods does not come off; this was 1/17/13. Maybe some of their other jackets have the detachable hoods, but not in this style (according to Patagonia, and the jacket my guy just got from Backcountry. N.B.D., anyway (less areas for drafts/heat loss, etc.). These newer modles do run a tad large; while he got a L, I think maybe a M would have fit better (he's only 5'9", not a athlectic build, seems too big, but...can't wait to get one of these, too!
