- Excellent Summer Weight Stretch Woven (Review by Adventurer2050)
I usually don't write online reviews, but I felt the need to comment on this jacket. I use this jacket like a shirt, and wear it with a thin baselayer underneath all day while in the backcountry during the summer and have never been uncomfortable. It provides the perfect combination of breathability even while performing high exertion activity in 80+ degree weather, durability for off trail travel and bushwhacking, and sun protection with the long sleeves and high collar. I have used both the hoody and the jacket version of this product, and I find that the jacket version breathes much better due to the same thinner body material used in the sleeves. The hoody uses a different thicker material in the sleeves and over the shoulders, which I find to be less comfortable against the skin, more clammy feeling, and not noticeably more durable. I also strongly prefer the design and color choices of the jacket version as compared to the hoody. I really appreciate the evergreen and mushroom colors, and love the simple and elegant monocolor scheme of the jacket version vs. the goofy looking two tone scheme on the hoody. If product development is reading...please continue to offer this product unchanged, and more products like this with a timeless design and classic color choices. Skip the garish colors, contrast zippers/stitching, and multicolored panels. Great job on this product!

- Best lightweight softshell I've come across (Review by mtnwrtr)
This jacket provides a great combination of breathability, wind resistance, and packability. It's the first non-winter softshell jacket that I would consider taking backpacking because of how light and compact it is. It's also the jacket that I end up grabbing for my outdoor endeavors possibly more than any other. Despite the paper-thin material, it has held up well so far to several years of regular use. One of the best pieces of outdoor clothing I own.

- Must Have! (Review by Dangalla)
When I go climbing, skiing, ice climbing, hiking, out to eat, what ever I do I always make sure to bring this jacket. Light, super breathable and still stops the wind like a boss. Great jacket for anything!
