Oregon Gary wrote a review of Arc'teryx Trident Hooded Softshell Jacket - Men's on May 16, 2007
Not having a windproof membrane, the Trident breathes much better than "windproof" jackets do. Great for pushing hard in weather where other jackets would make you sweat too much. However, the jacket is very wind resistant and water resistant. Hood is a nice feature, rare for a softshell. This jacket is not for hard-core weather, but is almost perfect for typical cool, damp NW weather.
