I had to search the site for "Guide Hoody" and it popped up on sale for $125. Must be left over from last year and for whatever reason they didn't bring it back.
I've had the chance to play with the First Ascent 18K Jacket a bit and it meets all the criteria, as well. The Colorado Mills Eddie Bauer outlet has a TON right now for half-off.
The Guide Hoody can be had for $64.99 right now. I've been thinking about getting one except for the fact that Outdoor Gear Lab completely eviscerates the jacket giving it one out of five stars.
