Recent Soft Shell Jacket Reviews

Arc'teryx Men's Psiphon SL Pullover

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I got this as a replacement for the Squamish. It's a decent jacket, but a little awkward. Fit Disclaimer: I'm 5'10" 155 lbs and very lean. I have small shoulders, a 29-inch waist and always fit a size small. I tend to run very hot as soon as I start moving. But get cold quickly. I find that Black Diamond Dawn Patrol series and Marmot fit me best and most brands' Trim fits feel normal to me. What works or doesn't for me may Or may not for you.  I've taken this jacket on a number of multi pitch climbs,… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Mithril Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great waterproof soft shell jacket. Durable and stylish. A great soft shell jacket. I have used it skiing and as a hiking jacket, and it had no problems keeping me dry in rain and snow showers. Also became my around town jacket in the late fall and early spring. It is a good mid weight, not overly warm (which is good for me, I tend to overheat), but provides much more warmth that my other rain shells. Velcro wrist adjustments work great, much prefer them to the elastic style. Plenty of pocket space… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Helium Hybrid Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A lightweight, breathable jacket, that packs down small, and won't weigh you down. In my never-ending quest to find the perfect lightweight wind shell, I have purchased and re-sold many a jacket. Either the fit is wonky, or there is no breathability, or they provide little protection. I pondered this jacket when I first read about it in Backpacker, and recently found it on sale, so took the bait. The jacket fits very nicely. It is a trim fit around the torso, which enhances its ability to breathe,… Full review

Loki Men's Mountain Hoodie

rated 3 of 5 stars Great ideas (built-in balaklava and mitts) and could be a game changer, but the quality is not there yet. I love the design of the hoodie. Adding a face mask and mitts to the existing jacket is very useful. I am always leaving the house underdressed for the weather and the Loki addresses this very well. Many times I go to work and when I come out my car is covered in snow and ice. I end up scraping off the build up with bare hands and freeze; the mitts solve that. Also, when I go cross-country skiing… Full review

Patagonia Men's Alpine Houdini

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Hello, backpackers. I fully agree with the last review. I would just add one important thing:  I bought it and was very satisfied and with the nice light blue color too. However I noticed that when tightening the back hood elastic it is OK on the top of the head, but the cheeks and chin are widely open to the rain that comes in. There are no elastics going up to the zip that tightens around the face. That's why I give 3.5 stars. Full review

Tamagear Saddleback Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars The Tamagear Saddleback Jacket performs very well in many situations. The jacket can function well as a mid-layer or outer layer. It sports a stylish look and comfortable fit. This jacket is best suited for use in high activity cool weather endeavors. The Tamagear Saddleback Jacket is best suited for use in high activity cool weather endeavors. It is not adequately warm for sedentary pursuits in cold weather. When your activity level is high, and you need great ventilation, you will stay dry wearing… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Gamma LT Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars An ultra-breathable softshell, which provides excellent weather protection. I have had this softshell jacket for several years now, and it is one of the most often used pieces of outdoor clothing in my closet. I wear it cycling to and from work in iffy weather. Snowshoeing on a chilly day. Hiking when it's windy. I find myself reaching for it for most anything outside of full on rain. The jacket fits great without binding or tightness anywhere. A nice and soft fleecy lining on the collar makes it… Full review

Canada Goose Trenton Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Trenton is Canada Goose's newest venture into a hybrid softshell. The water resistant (waterproof?) exterior is bonded to a stretchable middle layer and a warm/soft inner layer. The quality is outstanding. The temperature rating is conservative. The look is stylish. Following three and a half months of testing in a variety of weather conditions, I highly recommend this jacket. About the Reviewer: I am a 6'2” and currently weigh 172lbs (when the jacket arrived I was 185lbs). My jacket size… Full review

Marmot Kingpin Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars This jacket is one of my favorites, thanks. Great work guys, keep it up. Full review
