MARS (Military Advanced Regulator System)


In 2004, Patagonia commenced work for a SOF customer on an environmental clothing system which was comprised of modifications to what was already in their commercial line. Leveraging their Regulator line of inner layers, this project was dubbed the Military Advanced Regulator System or MARS. Some garments remained the same as their commercially available counterparts but with a color change to Alpha Green, while other items were slightly modified with additions such as sleeve pockets. Later, many components of MARS were produced in Coyote.

MARS "Rain Shadow Jacket Level 5"


R2 Regulator Fleece Jacket: This is a simple lightweight Polartec Thermal Pro Fleece jacket. It has thinner stretch panels on the sides of the torso. It is not windproof or resistant. This jacket is not as thick or warm as the Mil Issue 300 weight fleece jacket. It is lighter being better suited to a higher level of physical activity. They also pack up smaller than the issued fleece. Has to hand warmer pockets and one zippered chest pocket, and elastic cuffs. No interior pockets. A good lightweight fleece that is not too hot for vigorous outdoor activity. Retail, $139.95

Slingshot Soft Shell Jacket: This is a simple windbreaker type jacket with a tight plain weave. It has a stand up collar, high mounted hand warmer pockets, bicep mounted pockets on both sleeves, (These close with Velcro but mine seem to be a bit too far forward on the sleeve. When items are carried in them rolls forward a lot and get in the way while working.) and a DWR (Durable Water Repellant) finish that sheds wind and water somewhat. No interior pockets, no pit zips. A nice light, packable, earthy toned, windbreaker jacket. Retail, $139.95

Dimension Technical Soft Shell Jacket: This is a full featured soft shell jacket. It is a thicker “doby weave,” more robust than the Slingshot Jacket. This jacket has a hood that is frikken huge! No matter the helmet or hearing protection your wearing I bet the hood will still come down far enough to cover your eyes. Most “technical” jackets have large hoods that cover climbing helmets worn with hats. You have to use the shock corded hood take-up strings to keep the hood in its place keeping your vision clear. It has a hood roll-up strap, chest mounted hand warmer pockets, one interior pocket, extended rear hem line, and Velcro cuffs. This is a thicker warmer soft shell jacket. It’ll do a good job of keeping you warm without an insulating layer underneath or hard shell overtop. Since this is a warmer jacket a feature I miss, that I use, and have become used to on my jackets is pit zips. Retail, $249.95

Rain Shadow Hard Shell Jacket: This is a very lightweight rain jacket. Still a storm level garment with a highly breathable inner barrier and a DWR finish. The Rain Shadow is very packable with minimalist details. It has a huge helmet compatible hood and pit zips to help with thermal control. I hate to be clammy in my rain gear. Hand warmer pockets, extended rear hem line, water resistant zippers, and Velcro cuffs. All in all it’s a great lightweight packable storm proof rain jacket. Retail, $168.95

Stretch Micro Burst Pants: Lightweight packable storm proof hard shell rain pants made of the same material as the Rain Shadow Jacket. These come with removable elastic suspenders, twill crampon instep panels, one zippered thigh pocket on the right leg, and reinforced stretch panels on the seat and knees. They also have a partial elastic waist with a two way zipper and full length side leg water resistant zippers covered by a substantial storm flap. Nice lightweight packable storm proof hard shell pants. Retail, $239.95

DAS Parka: This is a heavily insulated parka. It has 6oz Polarguard 3D in the body and 4oz Polarguard 3D insulation in the sleeves. This thing is like wearing a synthetic sleeping bag with sleeve. It has a tightly water resistant, windproof, snag resistant shell with a DWR finish. It has hand warmer pockets, a chest pocket and interior pocket sized for Nalgene Bottle to keep your water from freezing. Of course it has a huge hood with adjustments. This jacket will retain some of its thermal value even when wet. (This is why all of my sleeping bags are synthetic and not down.) I depend on my gear to work wet or dry since natures a mother and I don’t make the weather calls. Elastic cuffs and drawcord waist hem. Retail, $249.95

Micro Puff Pants: Water resistant, windproof synthetic pants that compliment the DAS Parka. These are lightweight, full side zip, DWR finished pants with an elastic and Velcro waist. They have twill reinforced seat and knee patches. Insulation is 2.3oz Polarguard 3D. This is lighter than the parka which is fine for me. My legs never really seem to get cold. My trunk and torso are another story. No suspenders on these though. Kind of wish they had some. Even the minimalist elastic type would be nice. Retail, $149.95
