These are my first high quality softshell and they are mindblowing. Really water resistant unless I'm sitting in snow for a long time, nice fit that's not too tight, easily go over my boots, range of motion is truly astonishing. The vents work great. Material seems fairly impact resistant, the one hole I've gotten is from putting some metal spikes in the side pocket, my fault. Super impressed, I expect to be using these things for many years.
Purchased these for touring in the wasatch, only one early season day on them so far, but they breathe exceptionally. Love the big front knee pocket for storing gels and shot blocks, the vents are a plus, not many softshells have that option. Very happy with my purchase.
