Unwavering attention to detail.
Staying focused on committing lines is tough when you're wet and cold, so a jacket like the Patagonia Men's Untracked Jacket is necessary to help keep your wits about you. Constructed with a durable Gore-Tex shell, fully taped seams, and watertight zippers, this jacket keeps you dry during nasty winter storms without causing sweat to build up and leave you shivering. The DWR finish causes moisture to bead and run off the shell's surface for an extra layer of protection against the wet and cold. A brushed polyester lining provides warmth and slides over midlayers and baselayers with ease. Towards the hem, the lining is especially slick to stop snow from building up.
The Untracked Jacket is built with unwavering attention to descent-oriented details. Underarm venting boosts airflow for those ridgeline hikes when the best lines aren't accessible from the lift. A new adjustable powder skirt cinches for a tight seal or lies flat when not in use. The helmet-compatible hood features a laminated visor for optimal visibility in poor conditions. A Cohaesive cord-lock system embeds cord locks in the hood and hem for quick and easy adjustment. Patagonia updated this season's jacket with a more tailored silhouette for comfort and protection without bulk.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
I got this jacket to wear for resort riding and backcountry touring and love it so far! I've only had it for a couple weeks so far but in that time I'm ridden some of the deepest pow of my life and stayed dry day after day. It breathes really well and the pit vents allow great ventilation when touring or hiking, it's also super light and packs down small so you can easily stow it in your pack if it's too warm to wear.
Another thing I love about this jacket is the fit. While many other gore-tex shells out there that have a tight climbing/euro style fit, this jacket has a looser fit for skiing/snowboarding. It has a slightly longer cut to it which is great for keeping snow out and keeping you dry sitting on the chairlift or on the snow.
Bottom line. If you're looking for hardshell protection for ripping the resort or touring get this jacket.

This jacket treated me really well through last ski season. I used it primarily for touring and it worked exceptionally well because it is relatively lightweight and has nice vents. It offered a great balance of not being too warm on my way up and not being too cold on my way down. Definitely planning to get lots of use out of this jacket for years to come.
Bad velcro at the wrist.
Sent last years back because it fell apart at the cuffs in one season or more like half way through. Bought a new one thinking they would have repaired it and I can see its already unraveling. Very disappointed. Everything else about it is great.
