A lightweight, yet durable soft shell jacket is a winter climber's best friend, and the Men's Patagonia Alpine Guide Jacket will easily do double duty when you take a break from climbing to seek out fresh turns on your skis. When you're squeezing up a granite chimney and climbing hard, you get hot. Then it's time to belay your partner and you risk rapid cooling -- the Guide Jacket handles those activity swings easily with its highly breathable, wind-resistant Polartec Power Shield fabric. It has a DWR finish that repels snow and icy drips, and a brushed interior for better interior moisture management and soft comfort. Two zippered hand pockets and one chest pocket sit above your harness and help warm up frozen fingers. Articulated sleeves let you make those long reaches easily without fighting your jacket. The drawcord at the hem and Velcro tabs on the cuffs let you adjust the level of protection and seal out spindrift. Following in the footsteps of veteran climbers and mountain adventurers, once you try the Patagonia Men's Alpine Guide Jacket, you'll see that nothing outperforms a soft shell.

Decent, but not perfect
March 02, 2013

Not totally pleased with this, so I returned the jacket. Not really warm enough for the price while not being comfortable for a light versatile jacket. Didn't really like the fit. And the "hand" pockets are too high to put your hands into.... maybe this has a mountain climbing purpose, but it is annoying as far as everyday use.
