Patagonia Men’s Adze Hybrid Jacket


The Patagonia Men’s Adze Hybrid Jacket blocks
wind, breathes well and fits great. It is ideal for hiking, climbing, snow sports or
every day wear. This versatile piece can be worn as a stand alone or used as part of a
layering system. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and its features. The jacket is constructed of Polartec Windbloc
polyester and spandex fabric. The hybrid in the name references the fact that you do have
slightly differing constructions, some strategic placement on the jacket. So on the side panels
you have got a lighter weight, more breathable, stretchier fabric. It gives the jacket a nice
movement or gives you a full range of motion within the jacket. And then you have got greater
durability over the arms and the torso of the jacket. There is a DWR finish over top
of that fabric so it gives it nice water resistance. It is not a waterproof piece. It is highly
wind resistant. On the interior of the jacket you have got
a fleece backing, gives this nice next to skin comfort or if worn over lower profile
base layers. As far as the fit of the jacket is concerned,
it is what Patagonia would call a regular fit. Again, there is room for some low profile
base layers beneath it, probably not a whole lot more than that. But you can definitely
put heavier layers over top of it or a true water-proof shell if you knew you were going
out in nasty conditions. So, again, adds to it being a versatile piece within a layering
system. No adjustability on the cuffs, per se, but
there is a really smart design here. Again, you have got that durable fabrication. It
is cut in such a way that it really just does not ride up on you at all where you want it
to be. You can pull up the sleeves, certainly, if you need to and there is enough elasticity
there that allows for that, but no specific points of adjustability. There is some hem adjustability and that is
actually accessed through the two hand warm-er pockets. So there are pulls within those pockets
that will allow you to cinch or pull the hem in close. And then there are easy releases
on the hem itself if you do want to open that up a little bit. One other zippered pocket on the interior
of the jacket is kind of tucks away keys, essentials, things that you might want close
by, but don’t need immediately to get hands on. The Patagonia Men’s Adze Hybrid Jacket.
You have certainly got the functionality here that makes it a great piece for active outdoor
activities. You have got comfort. You have got a great fit that certainly also makes
it an option for every day wear.
