      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

wanted to buy WTB - Purple Patagonia Piton Hybrid Hoody Mens L

Recommended Posts

Like the title says, I'm on the hunt for a (discontinued) Mens L Patagonia piton hybrid hoody, preferably in the Purple. I have a Gray/Green zipper one that I love, but want to have a backup as it is my ski touring layer of choice.

Anyone holding?

Thanks!

You have good taste. That is my favorite fleece hoody. When I saw they were discontinuing it, I drove from Bishop to their Reno outlet to buy their last one in stock. It's a great cut for alpine bods, long in the waist to tuck in for extra warmth in the low back, full overage hoody which even when not pulled over the head really keeps your neck warm when fully zipped up. Breathes well.  The large fits my 6'2" 170lb frame perfectly. I own two of them and would buy another few if I could. It's the one go-to layer that I always seem to take climbing, backpacking, skiing, and for house/urban wear when temps demand it, as it's great alone or in combo with other layers/shells. The warmth/weight/durability ratio is better than any of my other backcountry wear. Used prices for them are ridiculous, as I paid less for new ones at the Patagonia Outlet back in the day.

Perhaps I need to visit their store to try on newer equivalents like the R1, etc.?

I have an R1 hoody as well (size M), and a Cap 4 hoody (size L) and Cap 4 hoody one piece suit (also L). But the Piton Hoody works better and is more versatile for my uses, especially ski touring. Size wise I am the same build and wear a large in the Piton. The hood and high collar are really well designed. The industry has moved away from these types of pieces it seems towards "active insulation" but they aren't as durable and honestly are just trying to solve a problem I don't have. I am starting to not wear my Piton as much so I don't wear it out!
