The Patagonia Men's Super Alpine Jacket is a waterproof jacket in a lightweight package for taking on the mountains via ski mountaineering or alpine climbing. The Super Alpine has been built with two different GORE-TEX® fabrics for 100% waterproof/breathable protection. The main shell is a 3-layer, 40D, 100% nylon GORE-TEX® Pro fabric, while the reinforcements are 3-layer, 40D, 100% nylon ripstop GORE-TEX® Pro fabric. The whole jacket features a durable water repellent finish to repel water from soaking into the fabric surface. The lightweight jacket comes in at 15.2 ounces with a regular fit that has a trimmer torso and longer length that still allows for layers underneath without impeding movement. The attached Optimal Visibility Hood™ has been re-engineered for even better coverage and visibility, and still remains helmet-compatible. All exterior zippers are trim and watertight, which helps drop weight as well as helps keep things from getting soaked. The pit-zips open for quick venting when your body heat rises fast. Even your wrists and arms keep warm and dry with re-designed Pleated Gasket Dry Cuffs, which help keep a low-profile to keep fabric out of the way of your ice tools. Finished off with two high pockets, that won't get in the way of your pack or harness, you're ready to take on the challenges of mountain weather.

Men's Fit Guide Details & Info
Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.
Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.
FORMFITTING • Conforms to the body's contours.
SLIM FIT • Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
REGULAR FIT • Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.
RELAXED FIT • Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.

Just what I wantedBeen on the lookout for a top tier light weight mountaineering jacket and decided to go with the Super Alpine from Patgonia. The quality is great. Ordered on May 7th and received the jacket on May 10th with the 2 day shipping option via USPS. Very happy with the purchase and would recommend moosejaw for future purchases! Love this jacket!!!!

Not so 'BIG' fitting...I purchased this jacket online as it was supposed to be an XL 'expedition' jacket. It is small and tight fitting! Cannot wear any layers viable enough to consider this an expedition outerwear, will be returning via the no hassle return policy.
Aside from trying on, I've not worn...
