Patagonia wants to make sure that you’ll be fully prepared for the challenges of climbing, and so the brand has put together a truly amazing High Alpine Kit for both men and women. This kit includes high-quality Patagonia gear such as pants, hoodies, bottoms and parkas, all of which boast the company’s own technologies and fabric combinations. Let’s have a closer look at the Patagonia High Alpine Kit for men and women, shall we?
Patagonia Merino Air Hoody
We’ll start off with the brand’s Air Hoody, which is available in both men and women’s versions. Both variants flaunt uniquely lofted yarn that ensures irreproachable warmth, breathability and stretch, while wool sourced from the grasslands of Patagonia is mixed with Capilene fiber for outstanding comfort. The company uses recycled polyester for these products, which is sourced from plastic soda bottles.
The main differences between the men’s and women’s Merino Air Hoody comes in the form of colorways. Men will be able to choose from Cinder Red, Campfire Orange, Forge Grey and Deep Sea Blue, while women are treated to Purple, Forge Grey, Epic Blue, and Drumfire Red.
Patagonia Merino Air Bottoms
The Merino Air Hoody that we presented above goes nicely with Patagonia’s Merino Air Bottoms, which were also manufactured using recycled polyester and are available in men’s and women’s versions. Both products flaunt 18.9 micron-gauge yarns, as well as lofted wool innovation, and they were manufactured using a seamless 3D construction that eliminates chafe points. They include 5.6-oz 51% chlorine-free merino wool and 49% recycled polyester seamless zigzag knit, and they are available in Forge Grey colorways.
Patagonia Nano-Air Light Hoody
Designed for performance athletes and mountaineers, the Nano-Air Light Hoody is 33% less insulative and 75% more breathable when compared to its previous version, but it managed to retain its amazing level of stretch. Available in two versions for men and women, this hoody was created using a 100% nylon ripstop shell and a plain-weave liner, while a durable water repellent finish keeps the elements at bay.
The pullover silhouette boasts deep a center-front zipper that allows the user to vent hot air easily, while an engineered pattern does away with all seaming across the back and shoulders thus eliminating abrasion points. The men’s version of this hoody weighs in at 10.9 oz, while the women’s variant is lighter at 9.2 oz.
Patagonia Nano-Air Light Pants
The Nano-Air Light pants from Patagonia impress with warmth, flexibility and outstanding performance in cold conditions. They boast a lightweight 100% nylon ripstop shell and a plain-weave liner, as well as a 40-g FullRange insulation that blends with the shell and liner in order to ensure a fantastic amount of mechanical stretch and permeability. The pants were patterned to minimize bulky seams, and they have elasticized waistbands and internal drawcords. Both the men’s and women’s versions of these pants come in Black colors, and they feature a durable water repellent finish.
Patagonia Men’s M10 Anorak
The latest version of Patagonia’s M10 Anorak for men is a lightweight 3-layer shell jacket that provides an ideal balance of protection and minimalistic looks. The product comes with ultrasonic-welted seams reinforced with a narrow seam tape for a very low bulk, while an engineered pattern eliminates all seaming from the back panel and shoulder areas. The product includes an H2No Performance Standard shell, and it comes with a simple pullover silhouette. Its campfire orange colorway is incredibly eye-catching, and it provides a plus of visibility when the sun goes down.
Patagonia Women’s M10 Jacket
The M10 Jacket for women by Patagonia comes in Purple, Big Sur Blue, and True Teal, and it also impresses with a H2No Performance standard shell that was built with an ultra light, 3-layer, waterproof and breathable nylon ripstop complemented by a durable water repellent finish. The ultrasonic-welded seams are reinforced with a narrow seam tape, while a pair of handwarmer pockets and an exterior left-chest pocket add points in the practicality department. The minimal self-fabric comes with hook-and-loop cuff closures and a drawcord hem, and we should also mention the alpine helmet-compatible hood.
Patagonia Galvanized Pants
The Galvanized Pants for men and women by Patagonia were designed to provide dynamic performance and protection, and so they are able to stretch, breathe and keep the elements at bay thanks to their advanced technologies and durable fabrics. The H2No Performance Standard shell is present for both the men’s and women’s pants, but the Patagonia Galvanized pants for men are a bit heavier at 13.4 oz when compared to the lighter 10.2 oz offered for women. The women’s pants also include a separating zip fly and a unique OppoSet that’s adjustable for a custom fit.
Patagonia Men’s Grade VII Down Parka
No alpine gear set would be complete without a reliable parka, and the Patagonia Grade VII parka for men is definitely one of the best available. It features a Black or Viking Blue colorway, and it tips the scales at 23.8 oz. Its main highlights include a light and durable 100% nylon shell fabric with a DWR, as well as a plethora of pockets, elasticized stitches at the cuff openings, and a hem-cord that routes through a mini-powder-skirt located a few inches above the jacket hem. The parka includes 800-fill Traceable Down, and it has a helmet-compatible baffled hood with a single-pull drawcord and a high-loft draft collar.
Patagonia Hybrid Sleeping Bag
The Hybrid Sleeping Bag is available in a single Viking Blue colorway, and it is based on 850-fill-power Traceable Down insulation. It also boasts a featherweight 100% nylon ripstop liner with a durable water repellent finish, as well as an Ultra lightweight Pertex Quantum shell with interlocking Y-shaped nylon fibers. The custom foot box pattern eliminates dead space and bulk while maximizing warmth, while an adjustable drawcord at the waist area is used to seal in warmth.
