I love it!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my go to soft shell jacket. I have worn it during runs when the temp drops pretty low (20's-30's), I wear casually nonstop through winter, as a layer when I'm snowboarding, and you will always see it in my pack. It breathes well, durable, and doesn't impair my range of motion. The water resistance is just that, water resistant.. BUT I TELL YA WHAT! It keeps the rain out (unless you go swimming or you spend a long time out in the down pour, in that case you should be wearing a hard shell...) and it dries pretty quick! It is an awesome jacket, received many comments, and I wear it all the time. Definitely not a bad price, either. I would have paid more for this jacket, and you can bet I'll be getting another one when mine decides to wear out.
I've had it for about a year and a half and it doesn't show any signs of wearing out any time soon. The reflective emblems are even still in great shape! You really get a lot of use out of this jacket.
I'm 5'8", weigh 155-160 pounds, have a medium, and it fits perfectly, with enough room for a base layer and a fleece, maybe another layer.
Feel free to ask any questions about this. Like I've said, I have worn it a lot the past year and a half, so I know this jacket like it is part of my body. I never go anywhere without it.

what do you think for the fall, will it keep you warm for general wear/occasions?

It's perfect for those shoulder seasons. It's warm and repels water pretty well while still being breathable. I wear it quite often when I'm running around doing errands or just out in town. It's great if you live in one of those places that get's snow as early as October lol
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I just got back from a deployment and haven't been able to get on backcountry for the past few months.
