The most water-resistant soft shell jacket tested in their Summer 2013 Buyer’s Guide, Outside Magazine praised our Enchainment Jacket’s water-resistance and breathability, calling it ideal for “fall hikes to an early-season ski tour,” and, “a solid coat for the money.”“BEST FOR: everyday cool-weather wear. THE TEST: The Enchainment’s tightly woven soft-shell material lacks a membrane or water barrier, so while it deflected light rain, heavier showers soaked through. Even so, it’s the most water-resistant soft shell here. And thanks to panels of lightweight Schoeller soft-shell fabric under the arms and three venting, mesh-backed pockets, it breathes better than you’d expect. Which is why we ended up wearing it for everything from dog walks to fall hikes to an early-season ski tour. THE VERDICT: Some deemed the style classic; others used the term “dated.” Either way, it’s a solid coat for the money.”Shop the Men’s Enchainment Jacket and Women’s Enchainment Jacket now.
