The description says its a 3L pro shell, but I just received them this morning and it is the goretex soft-shell (white line hardshell). What's the deal? This sounds like older version of these pants. Does anyone know?

I've read certain places that the Gore softshell is just proshell with a fleece backer and softer outer fabric...don't know if it's true though.

Fear not! The Sabre's are made from GoreTex Pro 3L, with "softshell technology." This means the face fabric has a softer hand and there's a low-loft, brushed flannel backer on the inside. The pants are still completely wind and waterproof.
