The Mammut Ultimate V breaks the mold for a windproof softshell - it's lightweight with great mobility and breathability is increased dramatically by full-length side zips.
The Gamma MX Hoody will keep you protected, comfortable, and moving with ease across all manner of outdoor adventures.
Top Pick Award
This supple waterproof layer looks and feels amazing and will keep moderate amounts of moisture completely out.
The Gamma LT Hoody is a durable, breathable, great fitting softshell with excellent water resistance that we love having at the crag and for aerobic hikes.
If 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.
The Ferrosi Hooded is a well-priced layer for many mild weather applications.
With incredible four-way stretch material and a generous fit, the Dawn Patrol was one of the most comfortable pieces in our softshell review.
The First Light Hybrid has a lot going for it - warm, super stretchy, comfortable - but it doesn't handle water very well and the hood design is unfortunate.
The Panther Creek is a light shell that's not overly technical - it's an affordable starter jacket for anyone needing something simple.
This hybrid jacket is stylish, decently breathable, and insulative, though it's not as comfortable a fit as others in our review.
While not intended for anything technical, this is a stylish urban layer with fantastic wind-resistance.
