Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 215 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I have two Haglofs Barrier jackets and they fit great in size Large. The large for this one is a bit too tight through the chest, even for a base layer. I'm 6ft 215lbs, and wear a size 42R jacket. I returned for size XL and it fits great as a base layer, or with a tee underneath. <br /><br />Also, this is not Power Dry Fabric according to the label on the jacket . It's Polartec Power Grid. Power Grid is more airy, than the Power Dry that's in the Patagonia R1. The material is identical to Patagonia Cap 4.<br /><br />Just finished a short trip with it and I can tell this is the kind of thing I will live in. I've decided to ditch wind jackets from my hiking pack and replace with this haglofs piece. This will stop a bit of convective heat loss like a wind shirt, but will also act as a buffer during long showers under my rain jacket.<br />

I ended up buying this after posting my question below. It worked great in Alaska, and since. A nice fleece interior, but very thin. This thing is made to block wind and breath, not accentuate warmth. It will do the trick from 45-65 with just a T-shirt on below it, use a thin fleece to take you down a bit lower. Water beads well for now. Only thing it could use is a wire brim hood like the RAB stuff.Power shield is great and I think it's even superior to Polartecs new Powershield Pro. I saw the new Pro stuff at a store and the membrane is too apparent and feels like it would be tacky in the least bit sweat. Not so with old powershield. Take all that part with a grain of salt though, since i didn get to test the new powershield pro.It fits long, which I find nice.I am 5ft11 and the L (XL on the tag) fits well.

Will this softshell do well in the 30-60 degree Fahrenheit range? I''m thinking about buying this for a trip to south Alaska in June. The piece needs to be my main jacket (eVent hardshell will backup.) Average temps are 55 degrees, record low of 33 deg. I want to cover that range in something that breathes and blocks 95% of the wind. Is this the jacket? If you have a windstopper piece and a powershield piece, which do you prefer and why?
