In the big mountains, bombproof weather protection can help you keep it together while everything else is falling apart. The Super Alpine Jacket protects against the worst possible conditions with the best available waterproof/breathable and windproof fabrics. It features a light yet durable 3-layer nylon new generation GORE-TEX® Pro fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, key-area reinforcements and a technical fit with a slim torso. The two harness-compatible handwarmer pockets have a single-pleat design that lets you see your feet, but also allows the pockets to expand without bulky seams. Trim, watertight zippers for the pockets and pit zips are laminated in place to reduce weight and bulk; a small internal zippered chest pocket stows small valuables. The underarm gussets keep the jacket in place when you lift your arms, and the streamlined Gasket Dry Cuffs seal out the elements at the wrists. Our adjustable, helmet-compatible Optimal Visibility Hood has a laminated visor, and the sleek Touch Point System® embedded cord locks (in the hood and hem) allow for easy adjustment without opening the jacket.
  • Built with two lightweight, fine-deniered GORE-TEX® Pro fabrics for uncompromised, durable waterproofness and a wide range of breathability
  • Technical fit has a slim torso and longer hem length that reduces bulk and stays put under a harness
  • Optimal Visibility Hood with laminated visor provides exceptional coverage and visibility, and allows total range of unrestricted motion
  • Touch Point System® with embedded cord locks in hood and hem for quick-and-easy adjustment
  • Gusseted underarm panels reduce lift when reaching overhead and have minimal pit zips for venting
  • Two high single-pleat pockets with watertight, coated slim zips increase capacity without added seams; interior zip pocket
  • Pleated Gasket Dry Cuffs with tapered tab design provide a secure low-profile wrist seal
  • Shell: 3-layer, 3.2-oz 40-denier 100% nylon GORE-TEX® Pro fabric. Reinforcements: 3-layer, 3.7-oz 40-denier 100% nylon ripstop GORE-TEX® Pro fabric. Shell and reinforcements have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • 430 g (15.2 oz)
  • Made in Vietnam.

Water Resistant

 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.


GORE-TEX Pro products have a 3-layer construction that comprises a special high performance GORE-TEX membrane, bonded to a tough outer material and a specially developed robust inner lining. The benefit: no movement between the three layers for exceptional durability and the option of combining the layers with insulation.

The GORE-TEX® membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. These tiny holes are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside. But these same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so your body's perspiration is able to escape and you won’t feel clammy or uncomfortable inside your jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Features, Didn't Work For Me I really wanted to love this jacket, and I hoped it was going to be the one jacket to rule them all. For many users, I think this will be the case, for me a couple small things added up to one big no-go. The first issue I had was with the DWR. From day one the face fabric would wet out in even a gentle drizzle. It was still keeping me dry on the inside as long as I wasn't exerting myself too much, but the performance of a waterproof/breathable garment goes downhill fast when the face fabric absorbs moisture. I had to put it through a wash and dry cycle before it would actually bead any water, which is disconcerting because nothing will kill a garment faster than repeated wash cycles. After getting quite waterlogged in a downpour I had no other option. The fabric absorbed an unacceptable amount of water and took close to an hour inside my house to dry before I decided it needed to be thrown in the wash. I assume this will not be the experience of every user, and that it was a somewhat isolated occurrence. The second problem I have is with the fit. Again, fit is a personal issue and not necessarily a problem with the garment itself. I have broad shoulders and a thick chest which rules out mediums in any Patagonia hardshell without some sort of stretch. The large in the Super Alpine actually fits quite billowy through the chest between the shoulders, as if there is too much material and bunches in strange ways when moving my arms in front of my body. This coupled with the reinforced areas in the chest creates a situation where I have very poor visibility of my harness and gear loops when I am ice climbing. This would lead me to believe that I could size down to a medium in this garment, but the sleeves on the large do not allow me enough freedom of movement to raise my hands above my head without pulling the (super smart) wrist gaskets off of the cuff of my gloves, so I know this will only be exacerbated by sizing down. Like I said. I wanted to love this jacket. Read their description, it's features are brilliant. It just did not work for me in action. Try it on before you buy it if at all possible. If the fit works for you, I'm jealous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great jacket for everything. I love this jacket. It is a great piece to bring along on all adventures. I had intended on using this jacket as an alpine hiking jacket that I could also use on whitewater canoe trips as it is a three layer gore-tex but i have also worn the jacket skiing. Layered on top of a base layer and mid layer it is perfect as a shell jacket on the ski hill. I am excited to take it paddling and fishing and just hanging out in a downpour. The gaskets on the cuffs are also a great feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile This is my first experience with Patagonia products. I was visiting Hong Kong recently and the weather around May is consistently humid at 30C (86F) or higher. There's always a good chance that you'll see rain. I caught a cold on the first day there as I was constantly moving from outdoor heat to the air conditioned indoors and back out again. If I was healthy, any kind of tech wear jacket in Hong Kong would seem ridiculous but not this time. I shopped around looking for something waterproof to go up against the rain, something breathable so I wasn't cooking inside, something wind resistant so I was protected against the air conditioning, and something that was light weight and not bulky. For a city that doesn't need to worry about winter weather, it's strangely not hard to find apparel that's geared towards winter. Moncler is incredibly popular here, so is North Face, Columbia, Helly Hansen, and some other brands I've never seen before. I'm usually very meticulous with my research when buying things and I didn't have any idea what I was looking for on this particular trip. I just knew I needed something. Columbia, Helly Hansen, and to some degree North Face use their own tech fabrics. Moncler is ultra-priced and not what I needed at the moment. Having experience with Gore Tex products, namely an Arc-Teryx Veilance Field IS jacket. I knew from experience that Gore Tex Pro worked well for me. Seeing that the Patagonia Super Alpine was Gore Tex Pro, I pretty much jumped on it without thinking too hard. Needless to say, it really helped me for the rest of the trip. I didn't have to wear it much when outdoors but it wasn't hard to hold on to. The pockets are HUGE and easily stowed a bottle of water among other things. All the seams are taped which is what you would expect and the zippers are waterproof. There were times when I felt warm but never did i feel perspiration inside the shell. Chances are I'll never use this for alpine sports or activities so the hood is a little extreme for me. It's too big for regular use and the drawcords system doesn't do anything to make the hood more manageable. Overall, it's an incredibly well built tech shell. For it's intended purpose, I'm sure it does it's job perfectly. It wasn't designed for me and I'm aware of that. I can only give it 4 stars, because the hood wasn't what I needed. It's too big and hard to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Quality Piece of Clothing This jacket is durable, waterproof, well designed and worth every penny. I have owned the Super Alpine Jacket for several years. I reviewed it several seasons ago here on this website, but it appears to have been taken down. I saw there were not a lot of reviews on this quality piece so I thought I would add my two cents back into the mix. I have used the jacket extensively for two and a half years. Two trips to El Chalten, three months in New Zealand's springtime Southern Alps, multiple month long forays into the Wind River Range and a month in the Indian Himalaya are just some of the wear that I have put on this jacket. Despite the abuses the fabric shows little to no signs of abrasion, the velcro on the cuffs (a usual high wear point for me) continues to function flawlessly and it still keeps most of the water out. The rubber like gaskets on the cuffs are beginning to show signs of wear, but they still function well. Despite rock climbing a waterfall on Fitz Roy a few years back, water did not make its way down my upraised arms. Similarly after a few years of use, the main waterproof zipper is beginning to fail. It is no longer zipping reliably, but this has just started happening in the past month. Granite off-widths, heavy backpacks and arduous bushwhacking have done nothing to put noticeable wear on the fabric. It seems as durable and well formed as when I took it out of the bag. I have washed, dried and retreated the Gore-Tex Pro membrane a handful of times, as per the directions. Other than that, no special care has been given. It is a bit heavy and bulky. As one who does extended expeditions, and alpine climbs, in wet climates, a packable jacket is a plus. That being said, it is a trade off for its bombproof nature that I am willing to make. At a time when Patagonia is moving more toward the lighter, alpine style equipment, I greatly appreciate the quality, durability, thought and engineering that went into this piece of clothing. There are still folks who do extended expeditions in harsh remote environments that need the long term waterproofness and durability that this jacket provides. Thanks Patagonia for keeping this niche filled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like. This is my second Super Alpine. I blew the chest zipper on the first one. Fit is great, gore-tex is great, hood is pretty good. Cuffs are sweet.
