How to Choose a Softshell Jacket

Softshell is a unique, versatile material used to create lightweight, breathable jackets for skiers, climbers of all types, and runners. Softshell offers mild weather protection, ample warmth, high breathability, and it’s flexible for excellent range of motion. These jackets strike an ideal balance between an insulated jacket and a fleece.

Construction
The more active you are, the more breathable you want your jacket to be. A single-layer softshell offers plenty of breathability, but it sacrifices some weather protection. On the other hand, a two or three-layer softshell jacket will sacrifice a bit of breathability for the sake of more weather protection. Shop Single-Layer Softshell Jackets Shop 2-Layer Softshell Jackets Shop 3-Layer Softshell Jackets
Features
With the exception of a couple of pockets, most softshells are relatively bare-bones when it comes to features. Carefully consider what you plan to do in the mountains to determine the exact features you need. Underarm zips or a helmet-compatible hood may be necessary for one activity and unnecessary for another.
Related Content What is Softshell Technology
Fit
A loose fitting softshell is fine for skiing, but if you're climbing or backpacking, you'll want a jacket with a slim or athletic fit. A more contoured fit keeps the jacket close to your body, give you room to layer underneath, and it'll feel comfortable when you're wearing a backpack or climbing harness.
