Patagonia brings you the Diamond Quilt Bomber Hoody, a windproof and water resistant jacket that is perfect for when the weather changes its mind while you're gallivanting in the outdoors. The 100% recycled polyester shell with high tensile thread for durability. The diamond-quilting pattern creates a heat trapping geometry, while at the same time reducing bulk. Inside the jacket is a layer of 80-g Thermogreen® polyester insulation to efficiently trap heat in all environments. Deep hand warmer pockets and elastic cuffs keep the wind out and keep you warm and dry.

Polyester Fill - Polyester insulation may not be as warm or light as down, but it's far easier to clean and performs better in wet conditions. If cost is a concern or you live in a wet climate, polyester insulation might be your best option.
Synthetic insulation is measured in grams, so a jacket with a 80g rating simply means that a 1 meter by 1 meter piece of that particular jacket's insulation weighs 80 grams. The higher the rating, the warmer the jacket.
Recycled Polyester - There are over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris floating in the oceans. Recycled polyester won't fix that but this is better for the Earth than creating virgin polyester for products.
Water Resistant Fabric - A DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish allows fabric to shed moisture and prevents saturation to keep you warmer. DWR also helps repel oils and stains which can affect the fabric's breathability. Clothing with a DWR finish is a must in snowy or wet conditions.
