A great all-around soft shell, the Patagonia Men’s All Free Jacket resists the wind, breathes well and is soft and quiet, offering versatility for cold weather backpacking, snowshoeing, skiing or climbing.
Offering breathability, wind resistance and comfort, the Patagonia Men’s All Free Jacket delivers versatility for a wide range of outdoor activities in any number of seasons. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and features.
Weighing just 12.4 ounces, the jacket is constructed of a double weave soft shell fabric. It is highly abrasion resistant, has great wind resistance, but it also has really nice stretch and breathability, which makes the jacket really ideal for aerobic activities.
The All Free jacket has a regular fit. You can put some low profile base layers under this, perhaps, but not bulkier layers by any means. You could, however, layer over top of it in colder conditions or really nasty weather.
The cuff treatment on this jacket is Patagonia’s Variable Condition Cuff. It has a bit of stretch to it. Fits nicely without any real adjustability built in. It also is constructed in such a way that if you did want to pull up your sleeves, it still fits nicely but it is not constrictive in any manner, so an interesting design feature there.
There is also hem adjustability there. That can be accessed through these always open hand warmer pockets on the front of the jacket. It is obviously a fully zipped jacket as well and there is a storm flap beneath that zipper to offer some additional protection. There is also one small zippered pocket high on the chest to keep valuables close at hand.
Patagonia Men’s All Free Jacket, again, really nice versatility built into this jacket that makes it something that can be utilized in just about every season of the year.
