Softshell or fleece - pick one.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This jacket does what it's supposed to - stop wind. I don't deny that, and it's nice, but the jacket really doesn't provide much warmth. A fleece is warmer, and a softshell is more weatherproof. This jacket CAN work as a mid-layer, but really its fit is much more of a shell. And it doesn't work as a shell - yeah, water would bead a bit, but it won't handle weather as well as some softshells might. I can't return mine anymore, but it's taken a lot of convincing myself not to sell the thing and put the money to a warmer fleece or a more weatherproof softshell. I wouldn't spend my money on this again.
