Spring has sprung.
When snow recedes above the tree line and spring flowers bloom, replace your winter jacket with the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Hooded Jacket. This water-resistant jacket sheds light spring showers and it blocks cool alpine breezes when you hike for late-season turns. The nylon/spandex softshell fabric breathes well when you're working up a sweat, and it allows for maximum mobility with its movement-mirroring stretch. Tough stretch Cordura on the shoulders and arms stands up to brushes with rock faces and ski edges. In addition, DWR coated zippers block outside moisture from seeping into vulnerable zipper seams, and the zipper is offset at the collar to prevent chafing.

Best lightweight soft-shell
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I got this soft shell about a month ago. I have used it for b/c skiing, mountaineering and rock climbing. This is a great lightweight soft-shell. Super breathable and durable bet gives you the protection you need to stay warm while in the mountains.
I'm 6'1 and 165lbs and I have a size Large. Fits me good.
