I have decided to test this jacket in rain as there was lot of talk about whether soft shells are waterproof or now. Pretty heavy rain, I was outside for about 20 minutes and I'm dry. The jacket is wet on the outside as it absorbed some of that rain but inside is completely dry. The only place where water made it through is the logo stitching on the sleeve. I would not probably use this as a rain jacket (well, it doesn't have a hood, I was wearing rain hat) but it's great to know that if you have this and it does start raining it will keep you dry.
I've seen this jacket all over the place so I've decided to give it a try. Feels and wears nice-it's nice and soft, has lots of stretch and quality is nice. One thing I didn't like that much that it has pretty wide cut, I guess to accommodate people who really don't use this for performance reasons. The jacket felt little boxy with tons of room in the body and wasn't really cut for when you lift your arms up, like during rock climbing for example. But as a casual jacket to wear on town or for a hike it's perfect. Just don't buy this if you need a performance piece.
Very happy with my purchase. This jacket is great for pretty much any outdoor activity I find myself in. Good amount of stretch and it's pretty much waterproof. It also looks good and wears nice. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking for a jacket that will keep you warm and dry and that can take some abuse.
This is a very nice soft shell jacket. Evidently there is a waterproof membrane inside the fabric, but because the seams are not taped or glued or whatever they cannot call it waterproof. I like the larger more roomy cut of the jacket that allows for easy layering. One issue I have with the jacket is the fact that arms are not fully articulated, so any activity such as rock climbing might be little tricky. But overall it's a sweet and versatile jacket that fits the bill.
