Iffy conditions can lead to iffy decision-making about what to wear. Designed for cold weather fishing, Patagonia's new Tough Puff Hoody makes the choice simpler by covering all the important bases: warmth, breathability and freedom of movement. Durable enough to push through cover on the way to the water, it features a strong, stretchy and abrasion-resistant face fabric that moves with you and, thanks to a DWR (durable water repellent) coating, easily shakes off moisture or passing showers. With a contoured, female-specific fit, the Tough Puff keeps you warm with ultralight, highly breathable 60-g FullRange® polyester stretch insulation that lets you swing flies all day in ultimate comfort—whether you’re wearing it on its own or as a midlayer under a wading jacket in wetter conditions. The streamlined wrist cuffs have a simple elastic opening and the interior arms have the same water-resisting DWR finish as the outside—meaning you’ll get the least water uptake possible from willfully dunking your arms up to the elbows in the river. Two large, vertical fly-box pockets on the front chest, two zip-closure handwarmer pockets, and a moisture-wicking, 100% recycled polyester Capilene® interior lining round out the technical package.
