For shoulder season jaunts.
Patagonia's Crosstrek Women's Hooded Jacket is ready for all of your shoulder season adventures. The jersey knit exterior fends off the cold while the fleece lining keeps things soft and cozy, while the flat seam stitching rules out chafing when you're hiking, climbing, or enjoying a casual walk through the woods.

- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought: XL
I tried this on, along with the Arcteryx Maven, Arcteryx Kenai, and the Outdoor Research Transition.
This is a great and simple fleece hoody. The fabric is soft fleecy on the inside with a smooth outer face. I would call it a midweight. The right handwarmer pocket has a smaller hidden pocket inside for something like a chapstick or key, possibly a credit card (it does not zip though).
The fit did not totally work for me (5'5" and curvy/pear shape in an XL). I did like the length, but it ended up being too big in the shoulders/top and too fitted through the hips. It will be better suited for someone who is a bit straighter, and I think would definitely work for taller women.
