Review by: Valentine Cullen ⋅ Senior Review Editor, OutdoorGearLab ⋅ May 9, 2014  
The Patagonia Simple Guide Hoody has replaced the Patagonia Guide Hoody.
It has the same lightweight, breathable, stretchable, wind resistant fabric and helmet compatible hood with visor. The Simple Guide is lighter, weighing in at 464g which is 134g lighter than the Guide. One of our main complaints with the Patagonia Guide Hoody was that it didn't have adjustable wrist cuffs and Patagonia has remedied that with the Simple Guide. It has velcro adjustable cuffs and it also sports a nice microfleece lined neck.

The Best Softshell Jacket for Women Review

We took a selection of top-of-the-line women's softshell jackets and tried our best to thrash them. We looked for the best flexible, breathable piece that still offers some weather protection.
