Great shell for one season. This soft shell was amazing…

Rating: rated 3.5 of 5 stars

Summary

Great shell for one season.

Pros

  • Comfortable material
  • Easy to layer for extra warmth in cold weather
  • Flattering Cut

Cons

  • Material begins to break down and fade after one season of regular use.

This soft shell was amazing for one season. It's a very feminine, flattering cut. Easy to layer for added warmth.   But after that it begins to noticeably fade and the material on the edges/hems begging to break down. 

The price point makes me think it should be a longer lasting, more durable product.
