“Light and strong, the Super Alpine Jacket is designed to comfortably get you through extended trips and heavy-weather grovelling. The jacket is fully seam-sealed; its two-way front zipper is protected by our double gutter system and is securely topped off with a storm flap that fastens with intermittent Velcro® strips. Its pit zip vents use the same double gutter / Velcro flap system. The Jacket's full-coverage, adjustable rolltop hood is roomy enough for a helmet and easily m converts into a comfortable collar when not needed. There are two external and two internal pockets. Y-Joint™ sleeves and anatomically-curved elbows maintain freedom of movement when layered. Houdini® drawcords snug down the hood, waist and hem in heavy weather. Cuffs adjust with an extra-wide Velcro/elastic closure that opens wide for easy glove entry/exit. Imported” (Patagonia, Fall 1993).
