Patagonia Stretch

What differentiates this Patagonia Stretch Rainshadow Jacket from other waterproof jackets is its unique feature – stretchiness (a feature more commonly found in windbreakers than in waterproof jackets). This add-on contributes to the overall level of comfort, a crucial factor for everyday wearers and hikers alike. Don’t be alarmed by its price – the amplitude of details like watertight pit zips, dual-adjust drawcord hem, and a chest pocket with a carabiner clip-in loop will bring substantial value to you. And it’s recyclable, hooray!

With an outstanding skin-like material that stretches to the wearer’s body shape, this Patagonia jacket is truly one of a kind. The company made sure to include every imaginable and non-imaginable feature, thus making it near-perfect. Wear it on a rainy day on a commute to work or on a trail around Lake Tahoe – there’s no occasion this jacket wouldn’t come in handy.
