Patagonia Slopestyle Hoodie 2.0
Dek: 
A softshell jacket that is technical enough to wear on the hill but also good-looking enough to wear afterward.

When I think of the word slopestyle, the first things that come to mind are the X Games, tall Ts, and Shaun White. It’s not Patagonia clothing. But maybe that’ll start to change? Patagonia’s Slopestyle Hoody 2.0, which has been redesigned from last year, has a decent amount of style to it. Case in point: I wore it around Aspen all weekend and didn’t feel entirely out of place amongst the pro skiers in town for the weekend with their Red Bull flat-brim hats. All that, and it’s plenty technical enough to wear on the hill. It’s got a soft fleecy interior and on the exterior, a waterproof polyester softshell (60 percent of it made with recycled materials). The only bummer: It’s got a big hood, but it’s not quite large enough to fit over a helmet. Because of that, I’ll probably wear mine as purely an après ski jacket. And when you’re ready to retire the coat, you can recycle it through Patagonia’s Common Threads Recycling program. [$125; patagonia.com]  —Megan Michelson
