This is the best soft shell type jacket I have ever owned! It is designed to be worn next to the skin, but I have been wearing it with a base layer and I have stayed warm and dry throughout. The jacket isn't supposed to be waterproof, but I have worn mine in some heavy downpours and haven't got wet.I bought mine in olive green so that i can blend in when watching wildlife, but I am going to buy another in shadow grey for casualwear. I am impressed.

I know some bigger folk run hot in this for most of the year, but it's been my go-to jacket for winter work for several years. The weight might seem a bit high, but add a micro-fleece, mid-weight fleece and shell jacket together and see where you are. I've worn this on countless Scottish winter mountaineering days, trekking in Canada and ski-touring in the low Arctic. You can pour sweat into it or rain onto it and it'll still keep you warm, drying in a matter of minutes. The only thing I'd ask for is a slightly higher collar, although the neck closure on the hood does take care of that. It saves so much fuss with other layers and is really built to last. It works so well when wet that I've also bought an oversized one for sea kayak trips (resting rather than paddling). I couldn't recommend it more highly.
