We go to Whitewater for 2,000 vertical feet of Backside Bowl bliss, which on most days translates to a heaping helping of damp cold to go along with your serving of overhead. The Rubicon combines a tough shell fabric and stay-warm-when-wet insulation to keep you warm and comfortable ripping it up while everyone else is holed up with a latté and chili mac. The exterior is made of durable, 100% polyester ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to snub wind and moisture. Inside, a soft layer of compressible 150-g Thermogreen polyester (90% recycled) insulation (100-g Thermogreen in the sleeves) adds heat to thwart icebox temperatures. Finer points include articulated arms; pit zips; an easy-gliding liner; a zip-off powder skirt (with webbing loop that attaches to any Patagonia Snow pants); a helmet-compatible hood with a single-hand adjustment; and zippered pockets, including two handwarmers, one chest with media pocket and cable routing and one internal stash. There's also an internal drop-in for gloves and goggles, and an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector.
