Hello BC community,

I like to ski tour in softshell and bring a waterproof layer with me. I'm between the Mountain Hardwear Cohesion jacket and the Marmot Aegis. Does anyone hold an opinion on which might be better for such a purpose? Thanks!

Either of these shells will be a perfect waterproof layer to keep in the pack in the case of inclement weather. They both weight about the same and are super packable. I have the MH Stretch Cohesion in DryQ Core, and absolutely love it. For me the fit is spot on. I'm 6 185 and the Large is perfect. I think the Cohesion is about a half inch to an inch longer in length, and features a nice athletic cut. Maybe it comes down to fit, as they both are very similar for the purpose you need.

Thanks Jeff. That bit about length is important, as I'm a rather "long" guy.
