Patagonia Mixed Guide Hoody Jacket - Men's: The Mixed Guide Hoody Jacket combines hard-weather protection where it’s needed with a soft-shell breathability everywhere else. Created for the athlete that has the stop-and-go cycles. The upper torso hard shell (shoulders, chest, upper arms and hood) utilizes our H2No Performance Standard 3-layer 100% nylon ripstop fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier. The remaining soft-shell areas are made of heavy-duty but highly breathable Polartec Power Shield fabric. This durable stretch-woven blend (57% polyester/36% nylon/7% spandex) uses Hardface Technology that dramatically enhances the Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish’s resistance to wind, water, snow and abrasion. The jacket’s brushed interior provides a uncompromised comfort; the helmet-compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood with laminated visor allows optimal visibility in bad conditions; and gusseted panels let you reach high without raising the body of the jacket
The Patagonia Mixed Guide Hoodie jacket combines soft shell mobility and breathability with key area storm protection for the best alpinist protection around.
Combining the waterproof breathability of H2No® and stretchy Polartec® Power Shield fabrics, the Patagonia Mixed Guide Hoody takes on alpine adventures with ease. Full Reach Gusset panels brilliantly allow you to raise your arms without sacrificing coverage, while zippered pockets are strategically placed to secure items without interferring with your pack or harness.

These body mapped harshell/softshell jackets have prooven themselves with the proliferation of positive reviews. They can handle some serious weather and keep the wearer comfortable even with the start and stop nature of resort skiing. This particular jacket benefits from Patagonia's updated sizing where they have taken in the waist a little bit to make it more form fitting. The new powershield material is supposed to be pretty darn weather resistant while maintaining breathability. I wore mine on a very warm day skiing and can attest to the breathability. Jury is out on the stormproofness but I have a feeling it's going to be good. Hood fits a helmet fine. The one drawback for this jacket is sleeve length. Great for skiing, too short and restrictive for climbing. Only took one pitch of ice in this jacket to send me back to the others in my closet (mammut tempo hoody, arcteryx gamma mx, patagonia houdini, patagonia super alpine all do very well ice climbing). It's also still a bit baggy in the waist (characteristic of patagonia size L for me...M is too tight in shoulders...what's a guy to do...?) I'm 6", 180#, 33" waist, 42" chest and the mixed guide hooded fits well in a L with room to layer. I wear it with the mixed guide pant in a 32 for touring and fair days at the resort. - EDIT TO ADD - The chest pockets are great, however the hand warmer pockets are NOT set high to be out of the way of the harness. They are set at a perfectly normal position that TOTALLY interferes with the harness. Oh well, like I said, use it for skiing. It's also a bit heavy for a climbing jacket but quite durable for skiing....
I have loved this jacket and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice light shell. I am a traditional layering guy and this is a fine shell. I have used it mostly this fall in the rain and I have found to be very good in the down pours. The hood has a great elastic flap sewn in that hook around the brim of a hat to keep it in place. I don't think that the hood is large enough to fit over my ski helmet but I usually don't bother with a hood while skiing anyway. It lacks a little in the pockets as there are no internals but if you are using a Patagonia then you probably don't have one in your current jacket. Fit is good, I am 6'1" around 190 lbs and the XL is a little big around but I have longer arms and they arms fit just right. The size around is ok and will allow for a down underneath if it goes sub. Hopefully this is helpful.
I am biased because I am a life long Pat fan.
I have been wearing this jacket for over a year now. This jacket has been though it all, from a light mist to full on poring rain. The only time it has let me down and has actually seeped through and gotten me wet was about a month ago. After about 30 minutes of pure downpour if finally started to leak and I was able to feel little droplets seeping through the non waterproof seams. But other than that I have never had a problem with getting wet. Then again, if you are into sitting in the rain all day you probably aren't looking for a water resistant softshell anyways. If anyone is contemplating getting a softshell I wouldn't think twice about the Patagonia Mixed Guide jacket. This jacket has been amazing for me and I surely would buy it again.
I have only worn this jacket a handful of times but initial impressions are that it fits very well, seems to be extremely durable and is fashionable to boot! even for a night on the town (I have the forge grey)! An east coast ice climbing guide friend of mine swears by this jacket and wears it every day (reason I bought one). I'm looking forward to using in on climbs and expeditions in Patagonia coming up in a couple months as well as for ice climbing and backcountry ski touring in Alaska this winter!
So, this jacket is flashy and fun in that way but I am not so sure of its purpose. Not a hard shell, not a soft shell...but both. I guess it offers a slightly better level of protection for wet days than a hardshell. However, I bought it for its soft shell properties and plan to use on cold clear days of ski touring. Cool, jacket, fit is a little boxey as many regular cut patagonia items are. I wear a L at 6'2", 175lb, tall, thin, athletic build. Cool jacket but not totally sure where it fits in unless you dont already have a softshell and want this for the cool look and get a deal or something. Would not replace a serious hardshell for those that are out there every day!
