Built for winter's worst cold, this windproof, water-resistant, insulated jacket locks in the heat while it fights off the weather.

When winter sets in and the temperatures get really nasty, grab your Patagonia Rubicon Rider Jacket  and brave winter's worst. The insulated Rubicon Rider comes complete with Patagonia's Thermogreen synthetic insulation (150g) for days when the cost of all that light, dry powder is frigid temperatures. Patagonia designed the Rubicon Rider jacket with 2-layer H2NO waterproof breathable panels in key areas―shoulders, elbows and bottom hem―to increase storm performance and protect from abrasion. The main body fabric is 75D polyester ripstop, which is both durable and soft to the touch, and features a Deluge DWR finish to allow it to shed light rain and snow. 

The removable, helmet-compatible, adjustable hood locks in warmth and features soft microfleece panels at the back of the neck and chin. Patagonia also equipped the Rubicon Rider with a sleek, low-profile powder skirt that stays in place whether secured or not. The powder skirt features a loop of nylon webbing that connects to any Patagonia Snow pants to form a single powder barrier. The Rubicon Rider jacket's fit is relaxed for easy layering. A slew of pockets keep your stuff (everything from climbing skins to your MP3 player) safe and secure while you lap the chair or a favorite backcountry shot, and zippered underarm vents make it easy to dump heat when you need to. Patagonia finished off the Rubicon Rider with a Recco reflector, which makes rescue easier if you're involved in an in-bounds avalanche.

  • Tough polyester ripstop face fabric with DWR finish
  • Heavyweight reinforcements at shoulders, arms, and hem with H2No laminate
  • 150g Thermogreen synthetic insulation
  • Relaxed fit
  • Zippered underarm vents
  • Loop on powder skirt to attach any Patagonia Snow pant
  • 2 hand pockets, 2 chest pockets, 3 internal pockets

Here's what others have to say...

How warm is the insulation in this jacket? How does it compare to the hoody down sweater? Is this warmer?

Responded on

The Rubicon Rider has lightweight, compressible 150-g Thermogreen® insulation that stays warm even when wet. It also has durable, polyester ripstop fabric which is breathable and water-resistant; 2-layer recycled polyester waterproof/breathable reinforced panels over shoulders, elbows and bottom hem prevent wet through and increase durability. And it has a powder skirt.
The down hoody sweater is meant to be more of an insulating piece that you can wear under a shell on super cold days. It also has that ripstop material with DWR coating and actually 800 fill down, so it is SUPER warm. But this Rubicon Rider Jacket is meant to be more of an outer layer, while the hoody is meant as more of a layering piece.
Hopefully that helps!

Can anyone give me the zipper length of...

Can anyone give me the zipper length of the XL?

Hey Andrew,

Zipper length measurements aren't typically listed. Center back length is more the norm which is the measurement from the base of the hood, down the middle of the back to the bottom of the jacket. For this jacket that measurement is 32.5 inches in the medium, plus or minus an inch for each size up or down from there, making that measurement on the XL about 34.5 inches. Hope that helps!

Warm and decently waterproof.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I have used this jacket quite a few times this season and I have been very impressed with its warmth and waterproofing for a non Gore-Tex jacket. The size on the jacket does run a bit big for Patagonia, I normally get an XL for Patagonia jackets but the XL was way bigger than normal so I went for the Large and it fit pretty good. It was slightly big but when I tightened the draw cords on the bottom of the jacket it fit better. This jacket will keep you warm on some pretty cold days. The coldest I have used this jacket and been fine was around 10 degrees F.

Michael: I'm considering this jacket as well and undecided between the M and L. I'm 5'10", 180lbs. I have the Patagonia down sweater in a M.

Responded on

If you were comfortable with the sizing of the Medium in the down sweater I would suggest staying in the medium since this jacket has a more relaxed/roomier fit. If you would like a jacket that has a little more room underneath to wear multiple layers then I would suggest going up to the large .

Very warm, very very roomy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

The pros: just about everything on the jacket, honestly. Plenty of pockets both inside and out - especially like the one built into the zipper in the chest (where I keep my phone). For a Dad skiing with a 6 year old, the huge inner pockets hold a ton - goggles, hats, gloves, etc. when you're taking a break. Very warm, but with the pit zips, you don't overheat - just have to layer appropriately. In 20 degree temps I wore this with just a capeline long sleeve T and a zip synthetic - plenty warm, even on the lift.
Cons: The only thing is that this is a SUPER relaxed fit. I'm 6"1" and 215lbs and the large is HUGE. I would really only wear this on the hill, otherwise I'm swimming in it. But for skiing, it's great.
