The space between takeoff and impact zone offers so many possibilities. Grab control of the moment with our Rubicon Rider. It gives you warmth, breathability and a design that encourages the freedom to charge. The Rubicon Rider manages the extremes of warm interior and cold exterior by combining a breathable and highly durable soft-shell fabric (to vent high-output moisture) with stay-warm-when-wet insulation (to keep you dry and mobile) and burly waterproof/breathable reinforcements (for storm protection). Made of supple, 100% polyester ripstop, the shell has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to snub wind and moisture. Inside, a soft layer of compressible Thermogreen(R) polyester (90% recycled) insulation adds heat to icebox temperatures. Tough 2-layer, H2No(R) Performance Standard panels, made of 100% recycled polyester with a waterproof barrier and a Deluge DWR finish, beef up the shoulders, elbows and bottom hem to increase storm performance and protect from abrasion. Finer points include pit zips, an easy-gliding liner, a zip-off powder skirt (with webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia(R) snow pants), a removable, helmet-compatible hood with a single-hand adjustment and zippered pockets: two handwarmers, two chest (one with secure media pocket with cable routing), one internal drop-in and one internal stash. With an embedded RECCO(R) avalanche rescue reflector and an articulated, feminine silhouette.
