Exploring New Zealand's most famous walk, the Milford Track is a serious undertaking. It means you need to be ready for anything - Extreme weather, rapid changes in temperatures, and arduous terrains.
But don't worry, as usual, Patagonia Australia has you covered! The updated Nano-Air Jacket is not only warm, stretchy and breathable, it features FullRange insulation and improved durability. The new shell fabric is super-soft so you can wear it all day long and for the entirety of your start-stop mission in the mountains.
Here's where things get really interesting. The Nano-Air Jacket has been cleverly designed by the Patagonia team and sets a new standard for technical insulation. They've combined the breathability of open fleece with the warmth and protection of a puffy to keep you comfortable and snug in a range of conditions.
The fabric shell, made from weather-shedding 100% nylon ripstop material means you stay comfortable and dry in the wettest conditions. Combined with a plain-weave liner and their advanced warm-when-wet FullRange insulation this Jacket is versatile, supremely stretchy and breathable.
The Jacket has a full mechanical stretch that allows for a close, athletic fit over baselayers. When you're trekking through arduous terrains you want an uninhibited range of motion and the Nano-Air Jacket gives you just that. Its incredibly soft and has a supple feel against the skin for extreme comfort. And because Patagonia understands just how quickly conditions can change, pull on a lightweight shell and the Nano-Air's thermal properties skyrocket.
Comfort is critical when exploring the Australian countryside, so is functionality. The jacket is fitted with two above-harness handwarmer pockets and a pair of smaller chest pockets all close with trim, low bulk zippers. The center-front zipper has a zipper garage for next-to-skin comfort. Fitted with a dual-adjustable drawcord the hem traps in warmth and the cuffs comprise of a sleek, low bulk stretch-knit inset. Like most Patagonia winter jackets the hoody has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
