There are better

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

The materials in this jacket aren't top notch like other softshells. It wets out more easily and it doesn't shed wind well. The fit is mediocre as well (baggy in the torso and sleeves) and the velcro closures on the sleeves don't work well. Additionally, the neck is too short, which limits its storm protection.

Compact but not lightweight

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

I had the earlier 2009 Simple Guide Hooded Softshell Jacket which I love to wear in Spring for light rain or mild temperature. It keep me warm, very compact so you can keep in the backpack for office and does not pile up. My only complain is that it is heavy for all day use. I prefer lighter material. Maybe they fix it in current version.

Sick Jacket

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

This jacket seems pretty bomber. Super lightweight and compactable and keeps you pretty warm with a light midlayer underneath. Definatley my go to Summer/Spring/Fall jacket that can pretty much be layered with anything and keep you dry in all but a downpour.
