Featuring hybrid construction, the Patagonia Men’s Shelled Synchilla Snap-T Hoody delivers everyday fleece comfort, reliable warmth, and the added protection of durable, weather-resistant nylon.
When warm days suddenly turn to cool nights, the Patagonia Men’s Shelled Synchilla Snap-T Hoody will certainly keep you happy. Cozy and comfortable materials with a nice fit make this a go to piece for when the weather starts to cool off. Let’s take a look at some of its features.
Taking a look at the materials of the jacket. We have got a blue sign approved mid weight polyester fleece. So throughout the jacket we have got a nice, polyester fleece material. It is really warm and really cozy and is very soft against the skin. It is easy to layer under or over in the event that you are using this as a mid layer piece.
The exterior or the harder portion of the jacket is a 100 percent nylon, so it is a nice, abrasion resistant and weather resistant material. It blocks some of that wind. It will block some of that rain with a DWR finish. Not being fully waterproof, but still giving you a little bit of weather protection, so you have got good protection from that nylon paneling and a nice warmth from that polyester material.
Taking a look at some of the features with this jacket, we have got full length zipper on the front. It comes all the way up to a nice stand up collar. There is no real zipper garage here, but you do have that nice fleece lining on the inside to give you lots of comfort against the skin.
We do have a nice full hood on the jacket. It is a relatively fit hood with an elastic binding around the outside, so it keeps you nice and cozy, gives you some warmth there and it is full fleece line, so no real adjustability with the hood, but you do have a nice, snug fit with that guy there, so a nice addition to the jacket.
We do have a chest pocket with a snap closure. It is kind of like a tap town pocket, so you can open it up and you can get some smaller items in there, a cell phone, a snack, whatever you might want to keep relatively close.
You have also got two snap down hand warmer pockets. So these are fleece pockets, nice and cozy pockets, pretty big pockets. And they have got two snaps to close down if you want to keep the materials inside nice and secure.
The openings on this jacket are elastic, so around the cuffs and around the hem we do have some elastic stretch there. So it helps to keep things in place while allowing a lot of movement as well.
This hoody does have a regular fit so it is not a super tight hoody, not super loose. It is very cozy, but I could see this being a great mid layer piece or a, you know, outer layer piece on cooler days if you are around town. It is a really nice feel, very soft and supple. And it moves well. It doesn’t hinder movement at all.
And there you have it. It is the Patagonia Men’s Shelled Synchilla Snap-T Hoody, a great, cozy option for those cooler days outdoors.
