not on the rug man wrote a review of Salomon XA WS Softshell Jacket - Men's on September 21, 2012
Has every feature I have been wanting and some I didnt know I wanted till it arrived.
-2 zippered hand pockets above waist straps/harness level
-napoleon pocket (has a small inner pocket in the mesh, i guess to keep mp3 player secure?)
-interior map/skins pockets behind hand pocket mesh
-stowable hood (no adjustments needed, has a gasket like system around the face, elastic band that acts as the adjusters, wired brim...wont fit over a helmet, but will fit under)
-2 way stretch Windstopper front, hood, ass, exterior arms
-4 way stretch highly breathable fabric on sides, interior/under arms, back
-gripper material on shoulders
-snap across the chest & behind the zipper above napoleon pocket for venting (attaches the two sides so you can unzip partially without the chest flopping around)
-single pull hem drawstring
-very water resistant
Only thing I can think of it missing is a port hole for headphones, but that is an easy DIY snip.
Ignore Johnathon, he bought the wrong jacket for his intended use.
My intended use is for cold weather mtn biking, urban/roadish cycling, and jogging as well as cool weather hiking. I havent used it yet cuz its summer, but having used softshells of various types in the past and figuring out the pros and cons, this is the one ive been searching for. As long as it lasts a reasonable amount of time, I cant think of a reason give it less than 5 stars. The bright blue color is sick too (two materials are just slightly off shade from each other if that matters to you). 5'11" 185, generally get a L jacket and am in between M/L shirts dependent on brand. L in this fits perfect with a little room, but not baggy, spot on. I havennt been this pleased with a piece of outerwear without even using it in ever.
