Description

The best of the hardshell and softshell technology, brought together to keep you feeling right and climbing strong.

As you work up a multi-pitch alpine route or boot up a 4,000-foot couloir with skis on your back, the Patagonia Mixed Guide Hooded Softshell Jacket keeps you protected from the elements while efficiently regulating your core temperature. This jacket features two strategically placed technical fabrics to meet the needs of the most technical climbers and backcountry skiers. Waterproof breathable H2No fabric technology in your exposed areas seals out flakes and dripping ice while highly breathable Polartec Power Shield allows sweat expulsion and mobility as you travel through the volatile alpine world.
  • Hood, upper front, back, shoulders, and upper sleeves features the H2No hardshell fabric, which consists of a tough nylon shell, a waterproof breathable membrane, fully taped seams, and a wicking interior liner to keep worst weather out while remaining breathable
  • Stretchy Polartec Power Shield softshell fabric in the lower front and sleeves is lightweight, highly breathable, and provides great mobility
  • DWR coating repels passing snow showers, dripping ice, and drizzle so you aren't soaked on a pitch
  • Entire jacket only weighs 22 ounces so you don't add a lot of weight to your climb
  • Adjustable hood and hook-and-loop cuffs tabs seal out the wicked weather
  • Water-resistant front zipper, chest pocket zippers, and storm flaps for the hand pockets prevent vulnerabilities to wet and snowy weather
  • Two zippered hand pockets hold your frigid fingers while you wait for a partner to tie into a harness
  • Two zippered chest pockets holds small items like a snack or a radio throughout the climb

So close

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

First off - I know it's not designed primarily for skiing. but damn they are so close to the perfect shell for skiing! It's really frustrating because the materials are top quality, super-durable, etc. But why, Patagonia, WHY NOT PIT ZIPS! I know you say it is breatheable, and it is, but pit zips would make it perfect! Also handwarmer pockets. I can't imagine why any jacket designed for cold weather activities (hmmm ... like ice climbing, climbing, skiing) would not have hand warmer pockets. That's just lazy. I got the Lotus Greeen so my kids/friends could find me when we're skiing trees, and it is cooler-looking in person than in the pics. Anyway - it's great, just wonder why Patagonia didn't take two really easy small steps to make it flawless.
BTW - I'm 5'11, 190, and the L is an athletic fit, with room for a midlayer, while still looking trim. Runs slim in the arms.

Great Ice climbing jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Been using this jacket all season for single and multi pitch ice climbing. The soft-shell keeps you ventilated while the hardshell (in all the right places) keeps the elements out of your face. My go to climbing jacket.

Awesome jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

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.

Awesome

  • Fit: True to size

Without question, the most breathable shell I have ever owned. Beautifully designed with the H2no material just where it is most useful. Noting like being completely dry inside after a long drippy ascent. Would have written the same review had I paid 450 for the shell. A definite buy.

ice!

Shelter in the cold

More protection than most shell jackets and all the mobility and breathability required as well for ice and mixed. A favorite.

Another great Pat product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

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.

Great Ski Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

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....

Brand new and already impressed!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

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!

Perfect Mix

  • Gender: Male

This jacket is a perfect combination of soft shell mobility of comfort with the weather protection of a hardshell. When planning an alpine climb or ski tour I have always had a hard time deciding whether to go in a hardshell for the protection or soft shell for comfort. Inevitably when I chose soft I'd keep a hardshell in the pack for emergencies. This was the answer. I would prefer a more athletic cut to keep snow out, but the extra room is nice for layering.

Best Shell out There!

This is the best shell out there! It will keep you dry. I laugh whenever I fall down in the powder on my snowboard because the snow will never touch me (not really, but you get the point). I always wear a down coat under this to keep warm (as this doesn't provide any insulation) and it's like heaven. There are enough pockets to hold everything that needs holding, and keep it dry, too. Worth the money. By far.

cool looking but unsure of function

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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!
