Anybody using/used the Patagonia Triolet shell?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the Patagonia Triolet shell.  Looking for something that I can wear all season, from temperatures in the 30's, and then layer up under when the wind chill puts is in the negative double digits.

 

I've red the specs, and some formal online reviews, but I'm hoping to hear from people who've had a chance to really use this thing for a season or more, and what they think.

 

So, anybody using, or used, it?

No idea about this particular shell, but it looks fine.  I have been using shells for 30 years now.  I look for 3 things:  Waterproof (Gortex), Ventilation (pit zips)  and pockets.  Patagonia has a good rep.,  though somewhat pricey IMO.  I just bought one of their down sweaters, though it was at a 50% discount tent sale.

 

BTW, if you keep the wind off your skin then wind chill has no effect.  I wear my shell with anything from just a t shirt underneath to a good 4 or 5 layers depending on the temp.
