The Pipe Down jacket offers extreme warmth thanks to 600 fill of recycled down insulation and a storm-proof outer shell made of recycled polyester with a DWR coating. A ton of pocket space gives you room for all the essentials, and a soft microfleece panel on the chin prevents chafing for better comfort during vigorous outdoor activities. A removable powder skirt and jacket to pant interface are installed to help seal out snow while slashing through fresh powder on the ski hill, and a discreet RECCO® System is included to help S&R crews find you in the case of an avalanche. If you're looking for a jacket that'll keep you toasty through the gnarliest backcountry conditions, the Pipe Down has your back.

RECCO® - RECCO® is an advanced avalanche rescue system hidden in this outerwear that will save your butt when you need it. RECCO® is utilized by more than 700 rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim's precise location using harmonic radar. Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but if you do you'll be glad it's there.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
Down - Down is the lightest and warmest option when it comes to outerwear insulation, the only drawbacks with down is it doesn't perform well in wet conditions and it's more expensive. Synthetics will dry faster than down and are easier to clean, but they can't beat down when it comes to performing in very cold and dry weather.
A fill power rating measures the number of cubic inches that one ounce of that particular down will occupy, so a jacket with a 800 fill power rating will be warmer than a jacket with a fill power rating of 500.
H2No® Performance Standard - H2No Performance Standard is Patagonia’s benchmark for waterproof, breathability and durability, which ensures a high level of long-term performance backed by their Ironclad Guarantee. H2No Performance Standard products undergo the most rigorous testing in the industry. The H2No Performance Standard for waterproof shell garments is 20,000mm before, and 10,000mm after their Killer Wash test (per JIS L 1092 B).
Recycled Down - The down fill of this garment has been reclaimed from used down products.
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.
Jacket to Pant Interface - Connect your jacket to your pants for better protection from the elements.
DWR Coating - A Durable Water Resistant finish applied to the exterior of the garment.
