This jacket’s soft and flexible fabric gives you good freedom of movement and breathability when you are working hard. It also packed down small when not in use. There are substantial zip pulls on the pockets which run smoothly and are easy to use with gloves. The sleeve length felt good and the cuffs were adjustable. The hood was excellent, fitting the head well and hugging the face with no restriction of vision when moving. It can also be secured out of the way if you don’t want to use it. There were better softshell jackets on test but, for the price, this is a very reliable option.
VERDICT: A practical companion for outdoor activities.
BEST FOR: Any activities where breathability is key.
