Recent Soft Shell Jacket Reviews

Mountain Hardwear Dragon Hooded Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Not as waterproof as it should be. I'm a big fan of Mountain Hardwear products having bought many of their jackets and pants in the last 10 years or more. Most of their products I must say I have bought for wet weather protection rather than skiing, including Conduit Silk and DryQ Elite products. I bought the Dragon Hooded Jacket expecting to get a jacket like the Epic series of jackets, but with more features. I've loved the Epic jackets and have owned a few and although they may not have been… Full review

Toad&Co Aerium Shirtjac

rated 4 of 5 stars Four-way stretch makes this a versatile fall/winter jacket. On the trail or out to dinner, the jacket looks good and keeps you warm. I received the Toad&Co. Aerium Shirtjac in late September just in time for fall and winter hiking. My dark chestnut colored Shirtjac came in medium and fit my frame well. Constructed of 100% stretch nylon and filled with a coiled polyester insulation it has the styling of a shirt with the warmth of a jacket. The Shirtjac features a snap front closure, two side… Full review

Marmot Men's ROM Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Superbly breathable, wind proof, versatile softshell. My go-to layer from fall to spring. At 5'10" 200 lbs, a large fits me pretty well, with room for a fleece or thin puffy underneath. I use it day to day for over half the year, either by itself ~10°C or with a light insulating and base layer down to -10°C when I am active (ex. snowshoeing, hiking, ice climbing). Arms could be longer for climbing, although I have a +2.5" ape so take that with a grain of salt. Also, to stow the extra cord when… Full review

Marmot Men's Sharp Point Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars Expensive! Durable as it lasted a few years and still good. Windproof but water resistant. Fleece backing means that it's not insulated, but provides a little warmth combined with the windproofness. Wear through cool autumn temps but not winter as it's not insulated. Tight fit esp. in arms/shoulders/chest so need to size up for layering. Bought an older version from years ago and it still fits. Appears that Marmot is finally retiring this jacket.It's windproof and water resistant. It can be worn… Full review

EMS Men's Epic Soft Shell Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Hiking/outdoor activities. I would recommend it to/for anyone looking for a lightweight breathable/wicking/ mist proof layer of protection. Best use for outdoors/hiking. Great flex and fit. I am 6'1" 200 lbs and got the large. Great fit with just enough room for a base layer without felling restricted. Not "waterproof" but mist proof and dries fast and wicks very well. Full review

Black Diamond Men's Dawn Patrol Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, bomb proof, very comfortable. Good pockets with good placement and zippers. Clever inside pocket for iPhone or small water bladder. Hood closes nicely over hat and helmet. Design makes for comfort in wet and cold exposures. It's a bit pricy, but well worth it as it's very functional and comfortable with several inner layers. Easy to use with ropes and ice axes as the fit is very comfortable. Full review

Sherpa Adventure Gear Shishapangma Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, comfortable, and very stylish. I really like this softshell for spring and fall temps. I really like my Sherpa softshell. It was my first softshell, and it is great for cool weather but doesn't do well when the wind is strong and the temperatures drop below 35°. It is lightweight, stretchy, and looks great. The only real con I have about this jacket is that the zipper gets a stuck at the neckline. Overall I am very happy with it and I'm glad I purchased it. Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Mithril Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Very reliable and warm waterproof softshell for cold conditions. Introduction This is a jacket that bridges the gap between softshell and hardshell.  In fact this is a taped seamed hardshell with a fleece lining. This makes it either the most versatile jacket you'll ever own or a jacket that you don't know quite what to do with. Fit & Comfort: Fits small. Comfortable with a base layer but cannot layer anything but a base and insulated vest under this jacket. Material is stiff and binds when… Full review

Marmot Men's Leadville Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars I haven't worn this out in the mountains yet, so this will be on fit and fee (10/2016 update below)l. I'm not familiar with soft shell jackets but I wanted one for the three seasons, wind and light rain. I weigh 160 lbs. am 5'10", jacket size: Medium I like the fit, the arms are long enough so if I'm stretching for that next hold while climbing my jacket sleeves don't ride up my arm and the torso length of the jacket covers the iliac crest. I hiked up Mount Washington in 50 degrees, in heavy… Full review
