SUMMIT SOFTSHELL JACKET
- Product Review (submitted on July 3, 2019):
- I have had the original version (non-lightweight) of the Summit for a couple of years, and love it! It is a warm but breathes well, well-designed jacket that has plenty of useful storage space in it. I am amazed at how windproof it is yet allows ventilation so you don't perspire like a few other similar jackets. The interior is equally amazing, the designers did an excellent job of maximizing all available space and if there isn't enough storage space in it for someone, they really need to invest in an backpack to carry everything they have! The only cons I can think of are it could use a more beefier main zipper and when the hood is rolled up into the collar it is very thick (almost like having on a life preserver). I recently bought a Condor Phantom jacket as it is more practical here in south-central Texas, it is very similar to the Summit I own but lighter and without the hood. The main reason I went with another Condor product was the excellent experience I had with my Summit! Overall, it is an outstanding jacket that has held up extremely well! I am definitely pleased with it and highly recommend the Summit to anyone looking for a good, warmer tactical jacket!
