Love this jacket. I have tried numerous brands (Marmot, Ortovox, Mammut, Arcteryx) to find the perfect soft shell, and I think this is it. Lean, trim fit, but not euro-tight, with nice long sleeves. Looks much better in real life than the picture on the website.
Comfortable, stretchy fabric that seems abrasion resistant, but still has some stiffness and body to it. A great all-around mountain soft shell: can be layered up or worn with just a single layer underneath. Have not tried it under intense mountain precip conditions yet, but I have a hard-shell for that.
Has a nice BD technical look without being over the top. I got the red. It's super bright (nobody will lose you in the rocks) but a nice change after all the earth-tones out there for men.
