Winter Opportunist The Nano-Air® Hoody: A stretchy, breathable cold-weather opportunist for any winter activity. When the seasons shift from warm to cool to cold, the wrong layers in the wrong combination in the wrong temperatures can turn any mission, big or small, into a clammy, finicky bummer—which is why Patagonia’s Nano-Air Hoody is so key to your cool-weather system. It’s warm, incredibly breathable and stretchy, so you can leave it on during stop-and-go missions without having to mess endlessly with layers. It combines a plain-weave liner with warm-when-wet FullRange® stretchy, synthetic insulation, and a weather-shedding shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. It’s soft and supple, with full mechanical stretch and a close, next-to-baselayer fit. It protects from all but blasting winds, but if that’s what you’ve got, pull on a lightweight shell to crank up the heat. Whether you’re post-holing up, dry-tooling across or sliding down, the Nano-Air Hoody is game for any opportunity. Slim fit. Imported. The Nano-Air Hoody is the cornerstone of Patagonia’s Opportunist Collection: essential, enduring pieces for any kit, any activity. patagonia.com/opportunist

Warm When Wet Traps heat with remarkable efficiency, even when wet. Stretchy Full mechanical stretch in both shell and lining. Breathable Unprecedented breathability so you can put it on and keep it on.

Key, always-in-the-kit pieces that switch activities as spontaneously as you do. In a perfect world, you’d do almost everything in the same versatile clothes. They’d work and wear as well in five or 10 years as they did the day you bought them, which would mean less strain on the planet, less strain on the zippers of your duffel, less time in transition between activities and more time for the doing. Sure, for very specific needs, only a specific garment will do, but for the other 80 percent of the time? A few key pieces, thoughtfully designed and intelligently combined, could get an outdoor opportunist pretty close to a perfect world. Here are a few essentials that never leave our cool-weather kit.

The Worst Idea Words by Luke Nelson

“You don’t have to be crazy,” Ty likes to say, “but it helps.” I’ve stopped counting how many times over the years these words have described our hare-brained outings. Right then, I was trying to focus on surviving the current one. Anything that actually resembled running had stopped hours ago. The sun was shining, but it was cold. Minus 25ºF cold . The groomed path to the warming hut where we were headed had ended miles back. A pair of snowmobiles had been through earlier in the day, but their tracks weren’t helping. They’d support our full weight, then without warning one leg would plunge crotch deep into the snow, the other still on the snow’s surface. The effort to then extract the buried leg without having the unburied leg also plunge through was exhausting. Eight hours earlier when we left the warmth of Ty’s house, the back of the truck looked packed for an arctic exploration but we weren’t going to the arctic. We were going running. In Wyoming. In December. The idea to traverse the entire Greys River Range on foot had hatched on a smoldering day in August—the day Ty and I had attempted a long run in the same range but had to hitchhike out after falling apart. Maybe the heat had cooked our brains, but we decided it would be fun to run the whole range. In winter. How could I still be cold? We had been running uphill for over an hour, dragging our homemade pulks—contraptions made up of small snow sleds, some PVC pipe and some rope attached to our waistbelts by a couple of carabiners. The pulks weren’t too heavy, maybe 15 pounds, and in them we carried a duffel bag full of most of our gear for the trip. I had so many layers on, including an insulated jacket and huge mittens, but cold still burned in my nostrils and throat. My beard was a thick icicle. At the top of Commissary Ridge, the sun peeked out and I defrosted enough to unzip my jacket, but just a little.

Here, deep in the Wyoming wilderness in the dead of winter, the grimaces we’d formed while creeping uphill, trying not to freeze, soon melted into hoots, hollers and giggles. Our pulks turned out to be just the ticket for the 3,000-foot descent off the ridge. Standing at the top, Ty and I straddled our respective duffels, and with a little scoot to gain momentum, we raced down. A GPS reading later proved that it is possible to break 30 mph straddling a duffel bag strapped to a cheap plastic sled. Several sections were so fun, we had to hike back up to scream down them again and again. Day one was 20 miles in 10 hours. Sure, we made a few stops to take photos, and we did lap the ridge-sledding bit a half dozen times. But it was the 8 miles of post-holing that ate the better part of the day. In fact, by the time our three-day trip was over, we’d covered nearly 70 miles, 20 miles of it crotch-deep post-holing. Given the high temperature of the trip was 1ºF, we count it an unqualified success that we didn’t lose any appendages. Insane? I wouldn’t disagree, but the best trips often

come from the worst ideas. When the forecast the week before had called for subzero temperatures, we could have bailed. Instead, we packed extra handwarmers. At one point, when I broke through the fragile crust for the nine-thousandth time and looked back, I could see Ty standing in the same awkward position; one leg bent, knee near his armpit, the other leg buried to the hilt. “Good times!” he shouted between panted breaths. “Totally,” I shouted back. Luke Nelson’s worst ideas have led him to a life of worldwide bipedal exploration. In addition to destroying his toenails while racing and adventuring across the planet, he is a husband, father and nearly a doctor. He lives in Pocatello, Idaho.

Right: Luke Nelson’s frosty mantra: Bad idea, bad idea, bad idea … Fredrik Marmsater Below: When it’s -20ºF outside, it’s all right to milk the map consult for as long as possible. Ty Draney and Luke Nelson slowly plan their route. Salt River Range, Wyoming. Fredrik Marmsater

Why voting is not a waste of time

Words by Yvon Chouinard

The politicians who deny climate change and think they are smarter than 99 percent of the world’s climate scientists are either crooks or dumbasses. So why would you vote for them?

In the United States, only 60 percent of eligible citizens bothered to vote in the last presidential election. Of those, many voted only for president and left the rest of the ballot blank. They say all politics is local. Why wouldn’t all of us care about who we elect to teach our kids or whether we clean up the local creek or canal? Shouldn’t we care about drinking lead-free water or breathing clean air? Who wouldn’t care about preventing a developer from filling in the local swamp where you hunt and fish? Or fighting a city council to keep a vacant lot available for gardening in your town? Ask the people of Flint, Michigan, about fresh water. Ask the children with asthma in West Virginia about clean air. Ask the people of Vernon, California, about contaminated soil. Put very simply: Without a healthy environment, we are toast. It’s mostly old retired white men (I’m an old [active] white man myself) who vote consistently, and they tend to vote against issues like education (their kids are grown up), progressive taxes, the environment and any change or project that won’t be completed until after they are dead. Only 25 percent of young people (18–30) voted in the recent midterm elections. Most young voters feel disenfranchised and disillusioned by politics, but if they voted in full force, the politicians would have to take seriously their issues, like student debt, fair pay and housing. 30

It’s a self-perpetuating cycle of apathy and inaction. Then there’s the single-issue voter who disregards what’s going on in the world and only cares about a single issue, be it abortion, taxes, gender or race of a candidate—or they just hate all government. These people also tend to vote for seriously uneducated politicians. This great country of ours is rated 14th in the world in quality of life, 37th in healthcare and 14th in education. Most of the countries in the top ratings are socialist democracies. Many Americans have a very negative view of socialism, equating it with communism and welfare. Yet they don’t realize that we actually are a social welfare society. It’s just that we are subsidizing giant agribusinesses, too-bigto-fail banks, fossil fuel companies and monopolistic corporations—many of which, through “legal” machinations, pay no taxes. In the United States, more than $37 billion in subsidies goes to fossil fuel companies. The question is not government subsidies per se, but who and what are being subsidized. With our tax dollars, we are supporting the wrong entities. Government doesn’t move unless it’s pushed. This can be done by you and me or by the Koch brothers or Wall Street. The Koch brothers have poured tens of millions of dollars into fighting climate reform. Bill McKibben of 350.org said the Kochs “hid their contributions through outfits like DonorsTrust, closely linked to

the Kochs and focused not on conducting research to disprove climate change (a difficult task in a warming world) but on raising doubts about it wherever and however possible, a tactic borrowed from the tobacco industry.” We used to be called citizens. We can still act like citizens by exercising our right and responsibility to vote. It is a very serious time in the story of this planet where we have the potential to destroy our natural world or to save this lovely blue planet—our home. The politicians who deny climate change and think they are smarter than 99 percent of the world’s climate scientists are either crooks or dumbasses. So why would you vote for them? If we don’t act, especially by intelligently voting for the people and issues that matter, then someone else will— someone who doesn’t care about a future for our children and other wild things. All of us working together can elect the government we need rather than be forced to live with one we deserve.

The Storm Words by Anne Gilbert Chase As I swung my tools into the unconsolidated snowy headwall and tried to catch something that would hold my weight, I looked down and saw Jason and Caro huddled together at a hanging belay. In the gathering dark, they were trying to avoid the constant barrage of snow and ice I was creating. We’d been climbing for 16 hours. I swung again, dug in up to my elbows, and grunted up and over the steep cornice that led to the final summit ridge. As I let my lungs absorb the cold, thin air, I could see the summit above glowing in the last light. It was still at least two hours away, and a dark wall of clouds was heading toward us. I built an anchor and pulled up rope. “On belay!” I yelled. My body moved through the motions I had made a thousand times, as my mind wandered. Should we

keep going or bail? How bad is this storm really going to be? Was it the wrong decision to leave our bivy gear below? This trip and the Himalayas had consumed me for the last year. Just the planning alone had been a major challenge: denied permits, foreign bureaucracy and partners that fell through, all creating the uneven stepping stones that led me to this exact moment and place. Mount Nilkantha towers 6,596 meters above the Hindu pilgrimage town of Badrinath in the Garhwal Himalaya. Despite the fact that it wasn’t my original objective, it had quickly captivated me with its majesty. Nilkantha’s southwest face had seen many attempts but few successes over the years, and we were hoping to be part of the latter. “Hey! Nice work. That was some weird climbing.” Caro wormed up and over the

lip of the headwall and stood up next to me looking toward the summit. “We still have some climbing ahead of us, eh?” “Yeah, seems like a few hours still.” Jason’s tool popped over the ridge, then his head, then his big smile. “Yeah, nice one,” he said. He pressed his tools down into the snow and mantled up and over the cornice. We were all feeling strong and, despite the approaching storm, decided the safety margin was big enough. We kept going. Caro set off, making quick work of the terrain above. Jason and I followed, navigating a path illuminated by the glistening blue ice under our feet. I could feel my lungs laboring and dehydration working itself into my legs, but still I remained calm and focused. Dark clouds settled over us as Jason and I reached the awkward stance where


Caro was crouched belaying. The storm began with light graupel, followed by heavy snow and wind. And just like that, on an exposed ridge at 6,300 meters, we were in the middle of it. Before I had time to think of our next move, something hit me. I yelled and grabbed my head. Caro and Jason stared at me. “What’s wrong?” Jason asked. “I think I was struck by lightning!” Then Jason felt a surge in his waist. We were in the middle of a static electricity storm with no quick escape. “Fuck, that hurt!” Caro bellowed, grabbing her chest. “Let’s get the hell out of here,” I yelled, my voice whipped away by the howling wind and increasing snow. As small jolts of electricity continued, I struggled to get a V-thread in the ice. My mind was racing, and I couldn’t focus on the simple task I had done so many times before. I felt responsible for the safety of the team, and now our safety margin was gone. “Come on, what’s taking so long?” Caro urged.

I looked up and locked eyes with her. Caro and I had not met before this trip. We’d had an immediate, strong connection and we climbed fluidly together, but now this storm was wreaking havoc on our blind date. We stared, saying nothing, understanding that things were going terribly wrong. Sensing my paralysis, she snapped into action. “Hey, what about slinging this rock. What do you guys think?” She grabbed hold of a rock half exposed in the ice. Relief settled over me as I regained my thoughts. “Looks solid. Let’s do it.” Wasting no time, we rigged the rappel and started down. As the frozen ropes slid through my belay device, I looked back up toward Jason and Caro, and the summit above wrapped in blackness. For a moment, everything around me went silent and I fought an urge to scream as tears welled in my eyes. It was over. I can’t deny my disappointment for not summiting. And maybe if I’d made the summit, the entire journey would now feel like a simpler event, more tied-up and defined. I know now that working toward the chance

to not summit was the real expedition, a journey defined not by single moments but by what I learned from all those moments combined. As a result, my respect for the mountains deepened, the bond with my climbing partners deepened, and my ability as a climber expanded. For all that, I am grateful. Because I’d retreated, the lesson of the trip became complex, nuanced, deeper and more difficult. No simple thing. But a thing I’d never trade. Anne Gilbert Chase finds balance between working as a nurse and taking care of others in the hospital, and taking care of herself in the mountains. On rest days, she likes to dig in the dirt, drink cocktails and dream up climbing trips to take with her husband. She lives in Bozeman, Montana.

We’ve changed the Nano Puff Jacket for good. ®

win for performance

win for the planet

It’s not easy to lighten the environmental impact of a trusted technical piece like our Nano Puff Jacket without sacrificing performance, but we never stop trying. So we challenged our partners at PrimaLoft to help us. The result is new PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Eco. Lightweight, compressible and warm even when wet, its premium synthetic insulation now has 55% recycled content with zero loss in performance. It’s so good that we now use it in all of our Nano Puff styles.

By using PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco in our Nano Puff styles, Patagonia will keep more than 2 million plastic bottles from the landfill this year alone. But a breakthrough like this is too important not to share. Beginning in 2017, PrimaLoft will replace all of its Gold Insulation, anywhere it’s used, with the new 55% recycled Gold Insulation Eco. We consider that a huge, responsible leap forward not just for the outdoor community, but for any industry that uses synthetic insulation.

Recycled Labels & Zippers

55% Recycled Polyester Insulation

100% Recycled Polyester Fabrics

Zippers, pullers, labels, binding, thread, cord locks and other features serve essential functions on a garment, but they’re often conventionally built in giant quantities from virgin materials. We’ve doggedly searched out recycled alternatives, hoping to incite a more global demand for nonvirgin sourced goods. Since 2014, we’ve used 85% recycled polyester content in the woven Patagonia labels that appear on our Nano Puff garments. This season the zippers on all Nano Puff styles are made almost entirely from recycled polyester.

This season we are proud to use PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco in all of our Nano Puff styles. Modeled after the pinnacle PrimaLoft Gold Insulation, PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco delivers the same superefficient performance but uses 55% post-consumer recycled fibers. By diverting used polyester from the waste stream, we lessen our reliance on petroleum-based virgin materials. PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco is soft, lightweight, compressible and maintains 98% of its warmth even when it’s wet.

We’ve been using shell and liner fabrics woven from 100% recycled polyester yarns since we launched the very first Nano Puff style in 2009. Since then we’ve evolved the fabrics for quality and performance, but our commitment to nonvirgin sources hasn’t changed. Specifically, our textiles use post-industrial waste from the yarn milling process—a clean by-product that requires less energy and less CO2 emissions to recycle than more highly processed postconsumer materials.
