Jacquelinewrote a review of Stoic Welder Lo Softshell Jacket - Women's on February 22, 2011
I had the same aforementioned issue with the fit of the forearms and was actually thinking of returning the jacket because of it. I'm glad I gave it a test-drive first. For me I can fit multiple core layers under this jacket, but only one (maybe two if you make them uber thin) full-sleeve layer. Still, I found that on the slopes the narrowing sleeves were no issue at all, and actually made it easier to layer with my gloves.
The hood fits perfectly over a helmet and it zips all the way to my goggles. The water repellance is great, but wind goes right through it.
Lack of wind resistance ended up being my only detractor here, but when you catch that arctic blast up on the lift that's a pretty big detractor.
