Best Soft Shell Out There
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
Purchased this jacket about a year ago and have put it to the test in Alaska. I mostly used the jacket for ice climbing and back country skiing where a lightweight, durable, and flexible jacket is key. I love the big chest pockets which fit small skins and the Hemlock feature on the waste is an awesome addition for ice climbers and anyone spending time on glaciers. The jacket breaths well and is surprisingly waterproof for winter applications. The lowest temperature I've worn this jacket is -20F with a light puffy underneath.
