Patagonia Spectre pull-over hardshell jacket

You can take this jacket everywhere for protection, just tuck the halfpound Patagonia Spectre Pullover in your pack and you won’t even know it’s there-until the skies open, that is.

The secret to this featherweight is a laminated 2.5-layer fabric that has a light textured finish on the inside instead of a full liner. It’s waterproof and wind-resistant, yet the whole thing stows away into the tiny chest pocket when you don’t need it.

Minimal features include a roll-down hood, a deep front zip for venting and a draw cord bottom. Keep in mind This is true minimalist protection-no extra pockets, pit zips or Velcro cuffs here.

Best suited to fair-weather adventurers seeking carry-everywhere weather protection.

Weight: 0.2 kg, 0.5lbs Price: $220 USD
