Great Multi-use Softshell
First winter with the Serendip, love it. Have had it out for sunny days and a few pounding days in-bounds (sadly few so far this year) and it has performed like a champ. Breathes amazingly well & repels the wet nicely. Haven't had it out for hiking to turns yet, so that will be a test too. Moves well, good pockets, just what you want in a softshell. I'm 6'1"/175 and the sleeves in the medium could be 1/2-1" longer, but I didn't want to go to a bigger body. Cloudveil tends to be a bit big in the body and shorter on the sleeves than some others, guess they grow 'em thick & stubby in Jackson!
Put it on and forget about it.
I picked up CV's original Serendipity about 10 years ago and barely was there a time when I didn't walk out the door with it. Thought it was time to finally retire it as the years have taken it's toll so I replaced it with their new one. I love the wool lining which helps keep the funk smell to a bare minimum and that they've kept the minimum style as on the original. Love it. Perfect for climbing too!
