Summary

Haglofs creates the best soft shell jackets on the market, period.
Super breathable (I never broke a sweat in this jacket) and warm (even on a stormy winter day at 4000m).

Pros

  • The best on the market
  • Very windproof
  • Very breathable

Cons

  • Expensive
  • The velcro on the arm laces could be stronger

This is a top performing, top-spec lightweight windproof/water resistant jacket. It's a well thought out and executed design with excellent fabrics and great adjustability.

I'm a cameraman and so far, after the -30°C of the 4000m on Switzerland's glaciers and the humid forests of French Polynesia, my impression is that this is a very well thought out and executed product. It is durable and well constructed and I expect it to last. 

It's just amazing that this can be so warm in a winter storm but still be breathable enough for one not to break a sweat during a strenuous exercise. It's nice to have such reliable gear so that one can concentrate on the work and not freeze once one has to stop to film.
