Mammut's got your back on the slopes.
For the days when you want to push the limits, the Mammut men's Eigerjoch IN Hybrid Jacket has your back. With its lightweight, water and wind reppellant Pertex outer, this jacket takes on brutal weather like a champ. Polartec insulation stays warm even when the sweat and rain dampen it, so freezing solid isn't an option. The Eigerjoch also rocks an athletic cut to offer you a full range of motion so that restriction doesn't happen when you need to pull the next move. When the weather conditions take a turn, you'll still be visible, too, since this jacket has a high visibility backer. Since this coat is extra durable, be prepared to take it on many adventures for years to come.

In term of softshell, I will consider a gear with multiple features, like wind/water resistance, light insulation, much better breathability etc. Years ago, I tried a "real" softshell, but to the end I am not really happy with it (this softshell delaminate eventually)
I am looking forward to a hybrid jacket with a truly trim fit as a second layer above the baselayer during backpacking tours for a time to offer me light insulation, wind protection, and maximum breathability, and I found Mammut Eigerjoch hybrid is the perfect one "softshell" in my mind.
When backpacking in summer, it is easy to damp into lots of sweat, Eigerjoch is essential gear to avoid chilling effect from wind and eventually give me a dry baselayer back; in winter or cold morning, it is a very good choice to layer upon the baselayer, versatile just like a softshell. Thanks to Polartec Alpha, which provide active insulation, it is very comfortable in a dynamic thermal balance, not too hot and you won't feel cold while walking into an area with strong wind even damped by sweat.
Hybridized a kind of four-way elastic fabrics, although the athletic fit is trim, restriction movement doesn't happen to me when full range of motion. This jacket is not only providing synthetic insulation but also fleece's breathability.
I like the fit, functionality, versatility and design behind the appearance.
