Gear of the Week: Patagonia Snowshot Jacket

There's nothing we like more than a tricked-out jacket. One that looks good, too? Even better.

Holiday shopping can be toughest when hunting for brothers and dads. Cozy sweaters for mom, new boots for sisters, but the men in my life always seem to get books and music. The Patagonia Snowshot jacket erases those shopping-list blues. It's notable first for it's bright colors (blue, red), but really earns it's stripes when it comes to technology.

I like a jacket that looks good– when the cut, styling, and even zippers all are sleek This jacket first struck me because of the fabric: the herringbone-woven exterior is different than most technical jackets out there. Of course, it's waterproof and breathable, thanks to the H2No barrier, and a durable water repellent finish makes sure you'll stay warm and dry. Pit zips, articulated arms, and a helmet compatible hood ensure no details are forgotten, and a chamois-lined collar and powder skirt keep the deep stuff out. Best of all, it's recyclable through the Common Threads recycling program.

Whether the man in your life is hiking out the sidecountry gate or ripping groomers with his kiddos, he'll love the simple design and stand-out technology in the Patagonia Snowshot jacket. $249; patagonia.com.
