Sunice Silverton 3 layer stretch soft shell jacket
Reviewers Paid: $20.00
This Sunice jacket is labeled by some retailers as a golf jacket, but it doesn't look like it. Here is a picture and specifications:
• PROTEK 3L laminated fabric
• 10,000 MM/5,000 MVT
• WxTECH coating
• Invisible hand pockets
• Adjustable bungee at hem
• Fleece bonded
The fit is athletic for me in medium (I'm 6'2" at 190). The arms are long enough but are not for over-head reaches - not a technical piece. The hem is longer than my other softshells, and is extended in the back to provide excellent coverage, which is great for running and mountain biking. Spandex cuffs keep the weather out of the sleeves.
The jacket is beautifully crafted from this Canadian company (made in China however), with clean lines and adequate pockets. It is plenty warm despite it's light weight, thanks to the bonded fleece lining and wind-proof surface.
I tested it in mild to moderate rain conditions yesterday (45 degrees with 10mph winds and rain) layering over a synthetic t-shirt, and had no soak through after 15 minutes of exosure. The DWR treatment is excellent (of course it's brand-new).
My only complaint is that the hem-cords are somewhat recessed well-above the hem, making adjustment a little more difficult. Great collar though.
I've become spoiled by my Lowe Alpine single-pull hemcords. YKK zippers throughout, with nice interior pockets as well.
