This jacket fits so well -- I've gotten many comments about that in the week that I've had it. It's got great water and stain resistance thanks to the NanoSphere finish and the shell is slightly stretchy for ease of movement. I'm very happy with this purchase!

Price Paid: $289
Westcomb is a brand I never heard of but saw it at Boulder Mountaineering (new shop in Boulder). It is an insulated softshell. Fit is so good I could not resist. I had been looking at Cloudveil Zero G. The Cloudveil jacket fits like a trash bag in comparison.
I've worn the thing every day skiing at the areas, around town and in the backcountry on cold cold days. Zip-away hood is great. Through the pockets bottom drawcord works perfectly. Seems to be windproof but very breathable skinning up. Their other stuff looks great to. Want to buy their Syncro Pant. Quality is as good as anything from Arc'teryx.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Start skinning up the mountain on chilly mornings wearing the Westcomb Men's Aracane Softshell Jacket. In the Arcane, you stay warm and toasty from the light S3 insulation even if you're out before the sun is up. Stretchy shoeller dynamic fabric gives you freedom of movement. Finished with Nano Sphere stain-repellent, morning coffee spills won't be an issue in this durable Westcomb softshell.
