To be quite honest, I never really knew what the big deal was and/or is about soft shells! But, when I received this top and saw the material, the light bulb went off!! Boy was I surprised, inner material is soft and will definitely absorb moisture. Yet the outer layer has a tighter weave to resist stratches, repel rain/snow.

The style is more than I anticipated (you never know looking at a jacket online). Also, the whole jacket has 4 stretch! Columbia definitely has been able to keep up with major brands with great quality at an affordable price. Buy it on sale (40% off) at!!!

Fabric: 91% nylon and 9% elastine duo-tech stretch/93% nylon and 7% elastine duo-tech stretch
Price Paid: $45.95

Great jacket, love the stretch fabric. Also the main body is very water repellent, but sleeves are not as water repellent, but it's an easy fix just spray revivex on them and the jacket is the perfect fall weather jacket.

A great soft shell at an even better price. Awesome layering piece, I wear it under my Marmot Phoenix shell and am toasty to sub 20 degree weather. Comfortable to wear around the house like a T-shirt. Love the great athletic fit--super comfy, great for people on the move.

Fabric: soft shell 4 way stretch w/dwr
Price Paid: $45

Much to my surprise, I did not to expect to get such a great product and such a great price (on sale at Cabela's!)! This jacket is very versatile, not too heavy/light, wind proof, and very water resistant and has great style!

Fabric: Nylon
