Must Have for the Adventurer's Wardrobe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
This is a such a versatile soft shell jacket. I use it on warm spring ski days, on misty PNW afternoons around town, as an extra layer under my snowboard jacket, or over a fleece on chilly camping nights. The hood fits nicely, and the thumb holes are clutch. My favorite are the double pockets with hidden zippers so stuff doesn't fall out.
Great soft shell jacket
I bought this about a year ago in April 2012 and didnt get to wear it spring skiing until this April, but I loved it all year round in between. Its a great light jacket, thats water resistant. I like to take it with me in the fall/spring when its sprinkling, not for downpours though. This spring I wore it with a light capillene 2 tshirt for snowboarding in 60 degree weather, it was perfect. Great on the chair ride up, and not to hot on the way down because it lets the wind in when your going fast enough. It seems wind resistant in less than ~15kts. Overall, great jacket because of its versatility.
Versatile spring and summer piece!
This hoody fits well and has great pockets- the hand pockets actually each have a second zipping picket inside of them which is awesome to secure your wallet, phones, keys, etc. It's wind resistant and will keep you dry in a light rain. It's not very breathable so I wouldn't suggest for aerobic activity or layering but it's great outer layer for spring skiing or as a casual spring/summer jacket.
Is this version water resistant? The older...
Is this version water resistant? The older versions say DWR coated and water resistant.
Yes. It has a soft, stretchy 100% polyester face with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish for weather- and wind-resistance.
