It looks like a techy soft shell, but is offered at an entry-level price- and for knocking outside around in cold weather, it’s really not bad. It’s membrane- free, so not windproof, despite what Craghoppers say on the website, but the woven nylon face cuts out some of the breeze, and the brushed fleece lining is cosy. This makes it a better jacket in my opinion anyway, as it breathes well and is comfortable when I’m active, even when layered under a waterproof. The cut is boxy, and although there is stretch in the fabric, it doesn’t give the range of movement that you’ll find in the premium priced soft shells here. I’m also not a fan of the aggressively tactile rubber and Velcro tabs on the cuffs, plus the hood is a bit small, but overall it’s impressive for the price.
