Great Function and Great Look
Grabbed this jacket right after Christmas '11, lost my REI soft shell in an airport. I love this jacket. The fit is awesome, looks great. I've only put it to the test once so far, wearing it under a hard shell jacket, to go snowboarding in the Wa Cascade Mtns. This soft shell, along with a Stoic Merino Wool / Spandex blend mid weight shirt underneath it, kept me warm at the top of the hill in 25 degrees with 40mph sustained winds. Was not cold at all!
