This light yet durable, packable GORE-TEX shell built with Paclite Plus Technology and 100% recycled face fabric is fully featured to keep you equipped and dry from summer thunderstorms to full winter conditions above tree line.
From summertime thunderboomers through spring snowfall, on alpine rock or backcountry tours, our Calcite Jacket stays light, durable and stormproof. It’s built with a packable 2.5-layer waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX Paclite® Plus fabric that has a 100% recycled polyester face and a special textured backer for next-to-skin comfort. The hood is alpine helmet compatible, with a laminated visor and an easily adjustable single pull. Pit zips help ventilate, its zippers repel water, and three secure pockets (exterior left chest and two handwarmers) hold your valuables. With minimal self-fabric hook-and-loop cuff closures, a dual-adjust drawcord hem and DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
Patagonia's Calcite Gore-Tex Jacket is a well-featured jacket that comes in at a good weight and for a good price. Gore-Tex Paclite Plus is a tried and tested fabric that provides ample waterproofness and high levels of breathability to give you a comfortable jacket that will keep you dry in even the heaviest of showers.
The 2.5 layer fabric keeps the jacket light and gives you a little bit more breathability over a 3 layer jacket and it's slightly less stiff than other jackets which makes it a bit nicer to walk in.
