Patagonia's take: Protecting you from the elements both in and out of the water, the new Stretch Terre Planing Hoody is made from the same fast-drying fabric as our Stretch Planing Board Shorts. Its superlight, 100% recycled polyester has 2-way mechanical stretch, 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish; the fixed 3-panel hood with adjustable drawcords protects from sun and wind and has a snap tab for easy stowing. The full-zip design has a single-pull drawcord hem, and durable elastic cuffs have thumb loops to keep sleeves in place while paddling or kiting. Two self-draining, mesh-lined front slash pockets are secured with noncorroding zippers and have zipper pulls for ease of use.
FKO's take: This is a new piece of kit for us this season. That beings said, we have tried out the Planing Jacket this late summer/early fall and it has been a breat jacket for the skiff. It is what we would call a spray jacket, not a hardcore rain jacket. When the wind is blowing, throwing spray from the skiff, and you need a little warmth reach for this jacket. It is AMAZINGLY light weight. We have found it true to fit.
