Jonathan Diehlwrote a review of Arc'teryx Seeker Comp Softshell Jacket - Men's on December 23, 2008
I have had this jacket for 2.5 seasons now and truly enjoy it. I use this during the summer for camping hikes in woods, and for most of the winter skiing. I love the breathability and never find myself sweated up inside of it. I have not had problems with wind but my standard midlayer is a mountain hardware windstopper fleece to that may be part of it. I love the zipper on the collar and how it comes up the side. i can ski with it fully zipped all day and it doesn't irritate my face. Also, little things like the hood cinch and the small place to slide the brim of you hat into, it makes the hood stay in place while hiking or camping and the hood turns with your head. Not enough for extremely cold days I am good down to about 5 F but any less than that and I usually go to a down jacket. I have done spring skiing in this jacket where it was snowing but the second it hit you it turned wet and though the softshell material was wet to the touch on the outside I was not wet on the inside. Great jacket to layer with. But if it is going to be your only shell I would go for something with goretex or a similar material.
