Spring isn’t all balmy days and sunshine, which is why you’ll want to have a look at the best women’s jackets from Patagonia’s 2012 line. The end of winter may have you chomping at the bit to shed those layers, but chilly temperatures and gray days don’t just disappear on March 20. Patagonia’s spring jackets will keep you dry and protected throughout March’s lion-like winds and April’s showers, even from May’s strong sun. Plus, they look great too! Don’t get left out in the cold this spring; check out these fashionable and functional styles from Patagonia.
Late-season snowstorm? Sudden cold snap? You’ll always be ready with the Super Cell Jacket. Sleek and chic, the modern, stylish silhouette belies just how tough this little jacket is. The lightweight Gore-Tex shell is utterly waterproof, and the 2-way adjustable hood with visor will keep you in control in the worst spring weather. This jacket also packs exceptionally well, making it a must have for early spring travelers, campers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. The fact that it comes in four great colors doesn’t hurt either.
If you want all the features of a sporty, high-performance jacket, but don’t want to look like you’re about to hit the trails, then you’ll want to check out the Saluki Jacket. The super warm yet super slim 80-g Thermogreen polyester insulation will keep you toasty warm without adding bulk, and the smart seaming makes for one figure-flattering jacket. The silhouette is classic with just a hint of urban edge and comes in three sophisticated colors that will make this your go-to jacket all season long.
Don’t let bad weather keep you cooped up; get out and enjoy the great outdoors (even if winter is a bit reluctant to say goodbye) in the Adze Jacket. This soft shell jacket has Polartec Windbloc material that will block out the worst of winds, and the fleece lining and hand-warmer pockets will keep you warm and comfortable. Treated with a DWR finish, this jacket will also resist moisture while still remaining breathable. Beyond being available in six great colors, want to know the best thing about this jacket? The fauna you’re outdoors trying to enjoy won’t hear you coming; there’ll be none of the conspicuous noise of synthetic fabric rubbing on fabric with the Adze.
Simple Guide Hoody
Can’t decide between the Super Cell Jacket and the Adze? The Simple Guide Hoody hits right in between. Designed to resist wind, handle snow, yet still be lightweight and extremely breathable, this jacket is finished with DWR for water-resistance. It also dries quickly if it does get wet. The adjustable hood also has a laminated visor for great visibility no matter what.
At some point, your spring jacket will have to protect you from something other than rain, sleet, wind, or snow, but it’ll also have to protect you from something equally dangerous: the sun’s harmful rays. Soft and lightweight for exceptional comfort, the quick-drying, hooded Sun Jacket offers a UPF of 40. Check it out in chic, summery white or two cute checkered patterns.
