Does anyone know how this compares to the Backcountry.com Rime Softshell? I know they're both made of Power Shield, but it looks like this might be a bit heavier. I like the Rime for fall/spring and this looks like it'd be great for the winter. Any comments? Is it any thicker/heavier than the Rime even though it's the same base material?
The Shift is certainly thicker and warmer than the Rime. Its a bit heavier, but the Shift is still a very lightweight jacket for its capabilities. The Rime is a perfect fall piece, and the Shift should be a fairly good winter piece, although I would suggest something with Insulation, such as the Backcountry.com Primaloft Siphon Hoody, for a winterpiece, as its going to be warmer.
