The Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket is one of those rare items that can make you stand out on the ski slopes, and not because you’re tumbling wildly down an expert slope with your obviously intermediate skills. But if you do take a spill, it’s likely that the Patagonia Down will hold up, due to its tough-as-nails abrasion-resistant shell with a DWR finish. And if you wind up having to play Eskimo under an avalanche, the good news is that this sweater jacket gets its name for a good reason: you actually have a sweater inside of the jacket for a double layer of warmth.
