Nice softshell! (Review by EPD)

This is a nice, lightweight, flexible softshell which is great for ski touring and inclement alpine weather. So far it's proven to be very waterproof yet completely breathable. There's a good amount of stretch, a nice big hood, well-placed pockets (chest pocket includes goggle wipe), and simple, sturdy zippers. Mine is a medium (I'm tall and about 150lbs) in black (the black has a little bit of contrasting blue which looks nice). Fit is great; sleeves are long enough, torso isn't too boxy or too tight. If you have a long torso, you may find this a little short. All in all a super nice jacket!

Great jacket for many things! (Review by SunburntMT)

This jacket breathes! Perfect for cool weather hiking when you need protecting from possible precip. Gear for around town.. Can't wait to try it out for touring this winter... I'm 5'10 150lb with small chest, and the medium fits great. Slightly snug across shoulders, but I have broad shoulders. Arm length and torso length are perfect.

Pockets... Awesome, especially the chest one, also, inside pockets are going to be great for holding a hat, my liner gloves and skins as necessary. I like how no-nonesense the zippers are. They DON'T leave me wondering if they will fail.

The pit zips are a must for me, and really makes this jacket so great.

Hood-Perfect. Awesome coverage, hands down.
