Pros Lightweight, durable, great arm length, flattering cut, excellent breathability and water resistanceUltralight, comfortable, fairly breathable, stow-away pocket, ideal for summer and fair weather activitiesWaterproof, soft flexible fabric, great fit, excellent cuff and hood design, lightweight, highly packableWarm, stretchy, comfortable, good breathabilityExcellent mobility, helmet-compatible hood with adjustable brim, durable, thumb loops
Cons Thin, cuffs aren't adjustable, priceySizing runs a bit large, not very weather resistant, not durable, hem rides-up while climbingWaterproof material decreases breathability, priceyNot water repellent, takes a long time to dry, hood could be betterHood adjustment is tricky to lock in place, on the heavy side for a thin layer
Bottom Line This jacket is a durable, breathable, great fitting softshell with excellent water resistance that we love having at the crag and for aerobic hikesA featherweight yet fairly feature-rich wind-layer for summer peak-bagging, trail-running, and rock climbingThis supple waterproof layer looks and feels amazing and will keep moderate amounts of moisture completely outThis layer has a lot going for it - warm, super stretchy, comfortable - but it doesn't handle water very well and the hood design is strangeIf you're on the hunt for a mid-weight pullover that can cover a lot of bases without breaking the bank, this is a great option
