Staying inside isn't the only way to stay dry - enjoy the trails in all conditions with fully seam-sealed waterproof/breathable protection. The Rain Shadow is made from a packable, lightweight and tear-resistant 2.5-layer 100% nylon fabric with a waterproof/breathable H2No® barrier and a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
On the inside, a raised pattern diffuses and channels moisture away from skin, aids in hassle-free layering, and enhances long-term durability. Updated with microfleece lining on the neck and chin, waterproof handwarmer pockets (no longer mesh-lined) with zipper garages, and external zippers that are now water-resistant (without storm flaps). Also features a roll-down, 2-way-adjustable, helmet-compatible hood, a 2-way center-front zipper, self-fabric cuff tabs and a drawcord hem.
2.5-layer H2No® shell fabrics are waterproof, windproof, breathable and highly packable. They combine a water-repellent shell fabric with our H2No waterproof barrier and a raised pattern on the inside, instead of the full-coverage interior scrim used in 3-layer fabrics. The raised pattern makes 2.5-layer fabric packages lighter and more compressible while still protecting the waterproof barrier.
H2No Barrier is Patagonia's standard for 100% waterproof and breathable protection in our shell garments. H2No is created by adding a waterproof and breathable laminate or coating to a high performance protective fabric. This fabric package blocks wind and water on the outside while allowing water vapor generated by your body to escape – keeping you warm, dry and comfortable. Learn More
