The newest Layer MVP
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
The Patagonia Levitation Softshell has become my go-to layer for everything from (frigid) trail running and nordic skiing to snowshoe hikes to more vertical endeavors.
The jacket's exterior blocks wind well and is way more resilient to scratches and tears than I expected, which has come in handy for the occasional bushwhacking.
The fit allows for an awesome range of movement in the shoulders, without the whole jacket flying up with it. I've been really impressed with the fit overall.
I'm pretty truly a medium in Patagonia, and the medium in this layer fit well, save a teensy bit roomy at the hem (but the bust/waist suited me well).
