Great jacket, poor zippers.
- Nice fit
- After 2 year the 1 zipper was worn out at the chest pocket
- the adjustable sleeve cuffs got de-laminated
The jacket has been used for two winters by my GF and she had been excited about using it, but the quality of the chest pocket zipper and the de-laminated sleeve cuffs is a big disadvantage for a jacket at that price.
This jacket made from water repellent and windproof…
Fabric: Windstopper® Stretch Soft Shell + Windstopper® Soft Shell
This jacket made from water repellent and windproof fabrics is dedicated to winter sports as the Recco® reflector and the snow skirt accessories prove it. The stretch and conformable fabrics combined with the ergonomic design offers an excellent freedom of movement. Water repellent and windproof fabrics guarantee you and excellent protections against elements. I don’t bring my Gore-tex jacket any more for snowshoeing tours and prefer this jacket which provides a sufficient protection for a better breathability.
As the problems I found are not major problems, I think the Jaw Jacket is ideal if you are looking for a winter multi-function but yet technical softshell. Some may argue that it is an expensive jacket. Personally I have no regret as I think this jacket is worth its price as it is a great product.
