Description

A versatile jacket for weekend mountain adventures and weekday wear when you're back down in town.

You can climb, ski, or stroll around town in the versatile Black Diamond Men's Crag Softshell Hooded Jacket. As much as you'd like to, you don't spend every waking moment on a crag or snow trail, so it's nice to have a transitional piece that's technical enough to support your weekend mountain forays, but casual and comfortable enough to wear around town when you get back down to lower elevations (or down to earth, you might say). The jacket's Polartec Windbloc shell fabric provides breathable windproof and water-repellent protection while its lofted fibers offer low-bulk warmth. This stretchy fabric supports dynamic movement when you're out on mountain adventures, and the large hood is compatible with a climbing or ski helmet. And whether you're powering out in the hills or strolling around the park, an internal media pocket with a cord port can hold your MP3 player so you can create a soundtrack for the day.

  • Nylon and elastane Polartec Windbloc shell with brushed fleece backer
  • Regular fit
  • Adjustable, helmet-compatible hood
  • Zippered hand pockets
  • Internal media pocket with cord port
  • Drawcord hem

Great so far

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Got this jacket last fall and I couldn't be happier. I've used it in both PNW wet snow and bitter wind of the white mountains, also while four wheeling. I stayed dry in the wet stuff and on the late season days it breathed great. When I came home to the east coast I used in some cold days in NH and with simple layers underneath it was perfectly warm.
Size definitely runs small, im 6'0 and 170 and I have the extra large, room for layers but still fits athletically.
The material also sheds mud real easy, even the fleece on the inside. After a day on a four wheeler the mud just fell off.
My only regret with buying this jacket is the next version coming out this year, its only gonna get better.

Is this water resistance?

Is this water resistance?

Yes, it should fend of light rain for a while, and heavy rain for about long enough to dash from your car inside.

What is the biggest difference between this and the solution? I understand one is a fleece and this is a softshell.. But just wondering what material is better. Also, I'm 5' 9" 165 lbs and I'm broad through my shoulders. Would a medium work best or should I step up to a Large to be safe?

Best Answer Responded on

The biggest difference is that this will be much more water resistant. You shouldn't feel wind through this jacket much, if at all, whereas you would certainly feel anything above a breeze in the solution. This will also shed a bit more moisture then the solution, though it's certainly not waterproof. Neither material is better, just have different uses. This will be better to use in cool/windy temps by its self, or in cold temps when you are doing high aerobic activities. The solution would also work for both of those scenarios, but would outshine the crag for layering, as a backup warm layer on a fall hike (it is half a pound lighter), and for being generally more "comfy". Purely depends on what you are looking for. For the dimensions you gave I would normally recommend a medium for an athletic fit, but if you are worried about shoulders, a large could be better, though it will probably be a bit more or a relaxed fit. Again, comes down to what you are looking for really.

is this jacket warm compared to other similarly priced jackets?

Responded on

That is too subjective of a question to answer accurately. This jacket depending on the activity you are participating in will keep you warm in moderate temps. This might even be too warm if you are skinning in the spring, but this will not keep you warm if you are watching a football game in late December. With added layers underneigh you could probably get away with this softshell below freezing but this jacket is only mildly thermal so if you are looking to keep warm in really cold temp then this is not your best option as a standalone jacket.

fair enough, im just thinking about buying this jacket but I cant find it a store to try it on. im debating between this one and the Patagonia adaze hoody

Responded on

Dan,

The Patagonia Adaze Hoody (PAT3375) and the BD Crag Softshell are made from the same Polartec Windbloc fabric. They'll be incredibly similar based on the fabric being the same. The major difference will be in how the garments are patterned. If you have a more athletic build, I'd go with the BD Crag.

jared is right. the adze has more space through the gut and wont be as close fitting as you may prefer for climbing and layering. additionally, the bd crag has a hood and an internal media pocket. the adze has an internal chest pocket as well, but i don't believe it has a media port. the adze has wrist closure where the bd crag does not. they both have drawcord hems. i'd prefer the bd for the fit.

Good attempt but some flaws

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I loved the idea of Black Diamond coming out with an apparel line, was ready and willing to try it all. Just got my Crag Hoody and I love the sleek look, the material is great inside and out but as a 6'3 190lb guy, normally I go with a large, which I ordered but when I went to try this on it had an incredibly loose fit, something I would have never expected from BD and especially after hearing how form fitting this jacket would be after talking to reps. I have sweatshirts that fit me better than this. Again, I love the idea, and would go with a medium, but with longer arms, thats not an option. Best of luck with this line!

How does this jacket compare to the Patagonia Adze hooded softshell? I need real wind block that`s quite warm and these two seem to fit the bill, but which one is better?
Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

they're made from the same material, so wind blocking, warming, and stretching capabilities are all on par. thebd crag has a more athletic cut. the adze has more space through the gut and wont be as close fitting as you may prefer for climbing and layering. additionally, the bd crag has a hood and an internal media pocket. the adze has an internal chest pocket as well, but i don't believe it has a media port. the adze has wrist closure where the bd crag does not. they both have drawcord hems. i'd prefer the bd for the fit.

Great fit! Versatile

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

The Windbloc fleece gives thie Crag a good feeling and versatility. The fit is slight trimmer than most other brands - which I think it a good thing. The finish is sharp and I dig the same color logo on the chest. It is easy to see that everything on this jacket was thought out and has a specific purpose - burly zipper, roomy hood, big enough for a helmet if needed, interior pocket for the smart phone/music with a headphone port. The Crag is a great casual around town jacket that also works great for trips to the mountains?

Basic

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Reminds of the North face Apex Bionic jacket a little, has unnecessary excess material on some parts (mid section)and a high price tag. But, it's deferent brand than the north face and I wish them luck.
