Patagonia is the first brand to be delivered for Summer 2016. Hot on it’s heels next week are Arcteryx and Rab.
It’s only our second season with Patagonia so there is lots of new product but a few stand out items are…
Stretch Rainshadow Jacket
Super light waterproof jacket, under 280g and under £200
Nano Air Vest
Without doubt my favourite new piece of kit. Seems to have the magical properties of keeping you warm when cold but never making you too hot. I use mine under my drysuit, walking the dog, ski touring and alpine skiing.
Capilene Lightweight Crew
Performance baselayer in white to help reduce sweating in the alpine sun. Sweat less and carry less water, seems remarkably simple but quality white baselayer is hard to find. People are put off by the fact they look grubby faster than dark colours, hang the asthetics, it’s performance we are after.
