Patagonia Simple Guide Hoody

By Magnus Angus

More than just a hoodie.
More than just a hoodie.

More than a hoodie (and unlikely to get me booted out of my local shops.) This is a lightweight jacket, made of a stretchy woven polyester fabric, wind-resistant, and still breathable, wicks moisture and dries quickly. On lighter days this makes a comfortable match to a pair of breathable waders, on heavy days I'd have a wading jacket over this. Patagonia list the fit as 'regular', apparently that's a fairly close fit, as it should be if that high-tech fabric is to do its work.

The cuff tightens with Velcro tabs, all three pockets are protected by zippers. The hood has a stiffened peak, a strip of micro-fleece protects the back of my neck from chafing. Well thought out, and nicely made. This one is clearly blue - Viking Blue - also comes in Graphite Navy and Folios Green.


Price: £120
