Patagonia Women's KnifeRidge Jacket
From the Andes to Chamonix to the Chugach—and countless steep destinations in between—skiers and climbers unite in their quest for all things frozen. Our KnifeRidge Jacket aids the mission with a unique balance of soft-shell breathability and hard-shell protection in a fully seam-taped, lightweight and stretchy 3-layer Polartec® Power Shield® Pro fabric package that’s waterproof in all but a downpour. The soft, pliable fabric slides easily over layers and withstands abrasion, while the underarm gussets and articulated patterning complement the jacket’s stretch. An Optimal Visibility Hood fits over all helmet types and adjusts with a single-pull embedded cord-lock system. The two high handwarmer pockets (above harness line) and single chest pocket close with watertight zippers; the hem cinches with embedded cord locks; and an elasticized strap at the lower back connects to any Patagonia Snow pants (and select Alpine pants) for big powder days. With a concealed RECCO® reflector.
