Earn your turns in a windproof, breathable, insulated softshell jacket that keeps you nice and toasty from the inside out.
Whether you're a backcountry fanatic who won't let a little cold weather get you down, or an in-bounds skier who works hard enough to work up a sweat even on cold days, the Patagonia Rubicon Windstopper Softshell Jacket is just what the doctor ordered. The Rubicon's Windstopper main body fabric is extremely breathable to allow sweat vapor to escape so that it doesn't chill you from inside the jacket; a durable water repellant allows it to shed light rain and snow. Strategically placed 60g and 100g PrimaLoft Eco insulation locks in the warmth, even when wet, so you can keep your mind on what lies ahead.
The helmet-compatible, adjustable, fixed hood locks in warmth and features a visor for better visibility and protection from branches and debris. Patagonia also equipped the Rubicon WindStopper with a lightweight powder skirt with a loop of nylon webbing that connects to any Patagonia Snow pants to form a single powder barrier. The Rubicon WindStopper jacket's fit is relaxed. 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 WindStopper with a Recco reflector, which makes rescue easier if you're involved in an in-bounds avalanche.

Just a great 'do everything' jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
By far one of the best jackets I've ever owned. This jacket can do it all, it's great in every kind of weather and is top in it's class with the windstopper technology. I have never been cold in this jacket even when I'm slashing pow in the backcountry and it's -20.
The only complaint I have about this jacket is that the powder skirt runs a bit small so it bunches up my under layers. Not a huge deal but enough to factor into the review. Overall: awesome jacket.
