Don't let the weather spoil your summit quest.

High-exertion alpine activities require a jacket that is extremely flexible, breathes well, blocks wind, and sheds snow. The Outdoor Research Men's Enchainment Softshell Jacket hits upon all of these key features—allowing you to enjoy your summit quest with fewer worries. In addition, the jacket's movement-mirroring stretch won't restrict critical maneuvers when you're climbing up a technical route.

This softshell jacket features a tightly woven polyester double weave fabric to completely block wind, resist all but the gnarliest of downpours, and easily shed snow. The extreme breathability of Schoeller underarm panels facilitate sweat evaporation; these underarm panels are treated with a NanoSphere DWR to resist moisture, dirt, and stains that inevitably build up over time. A wire-brimmed hood with stretch panels enhances peripheral vision, and DWR coated zippers resist moisture.

  • Polyester double weave body
  • Schoeller (polyester double weave) underarms with NanoSphere DWR
  • Welded seams taped in critical areas
  • Wire-brimmed hood with stretch panels
  • Zippered hand and Napoleon pockets
  • DWR coated zippers
  • Trim fit

Great Versatile Softshell

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket is perfect for High output activities. The closely knitted softshell that covers most of the jacket is in all the perfect high exposure points. It breathes great while working well to keep rain out. I have never gotten wet in this jacket, even though it is not fully waterproof.

The ligher Schoeller material underneath the arms breathes beautifully. I also like that it has been put in the front of the collar. Placing the softer fabric on the chin and face creates a soft and comfortable fit. The stretchy material inside the pockets allow me to easily stash gloves/ hat/ kicker-skins away while I'm moving.

The only issue I had was due to the zipper pulls on the handwarmer pockets. The zipper pulls are textured for easy gripping. The pulls rubbed against the light Shoeller fabric on the underarm of the jacket pilling it almost instantly. I cut the pulls off after my first use and it has not been a problem since.

I have large shoulders and chest and this jacket fits very well while still tapering down to my waist effectively. I am 6'2" 230lbs and the XL fits great.
