Simple, stylish performance.

A perfect companion for when you're navigating through cold, whipping gusts, the Mountain Hardwear Men's Fairing Softshell Jacket is an adaptable, smooth-faced softshell jacket with superior wind-resistance. Whether you're hiking, skiing, or just out shoveling the walk, the AirShield fabric is engineered to cut the wind to keep you warm without sacrificing breathability when you exert yourself. The interior tricot lining provides softness and warmth for long-lasting comfort, while the internal elastic cuffs help block out the wind and seal in heat. Great for layering, the Fairing has a mock collar for extra warmth around the neck when it's a particularly cold day on the hill.

Nicely made and comfortable, but does not breathe, which is the whole purpose of buying a soft shell. I had a similar Mountain Hardwear soft shell that was awesome and used it so much I wore it out. It was so nice I wanted to stick with the same brand for it's replacement. But try being active in cold weather with this one on and it just becomes a sweat box. I do not recommend it if you are going to be active in it. It's almost like wearing a plastic raincoat.

Nice, but could be warmer.

First off, the jacket looks great. The pockets are comfortably positioned and the zippers are easily operated. The stitching is minimal but looks good. I have been wearing this jacket regularly for about a month now and I have only been in light rain in it once. It seems to do a good job keeping the water out but it is not warm at all... I understand it is not a heavy jacket but with the polyester lining I expected it to be a little warm. I have begun wearing a thermal long sleeve shirt under it and it is more comfortable. Overall I am happy with this jacket but would buy one with a warmer liner if I purchased again. Hope this helps!
