Fantastic Super Hoodie!
I love this softshell. It's the most versatile jacket I own. I wear it over or under my down vest and it just performs. Breathable and water resistant, it really just works in almost any situation. It's so thin it folds into the smallest spaces in my backpack, carry on or briefcase. I like it so much I ended up buying a 2nd one as a backup. For me it holds in the heat and keeps out the moisture which is exactly what I expect it to do. I really think it's the perfect hoodie. It's worth a closer look if you already haven't.
north face quark men's jacket
over all a very good jacket for the money. this is a true shell jacket so there is no liner inside. nice stretchy soft shell, which is not totally water proof. when im in the rain i do feel a bit of dampness after the water sits of me a while. it has a semmi fitted cut, im a thin guy and it is a little looser than i would like. i would say that this jacket is best fitted for light spring, summer or early fall backpacking where there will not be heavy or long periods of rain.
The Quark is a great thin shell jacket, keeps the wind off and sheds the rain -though this seems to be more to do with the dwr coating rather than the fabric so I guess it will fade in time. Is basically the lightest/thinest softshell that you can buy -a good barrier to the elements but not as bomber as Gore-Tex and no insulation.
