SUMMIT SOFTSHELL JACKET

SUMMIT SOFTSHELL JACKET

Product Review (submitted on July 3, 2019):
This jacket is awesome, with a light base layer, it has kept me warm in -4c and there was a wind that day. Keep in mind I was wearing long johns under my jeans and my condor watch cap and would have been freezing without, but I expected my upper body to be cold wearing only my thin base layer and the Soft Shell, I am awaiting the arrival of a micro fleece, that combined with the base layer I already have and the soft shell, should keep me warm no matter what. I would not recommend this jacket as a primary rain coat, it performed well in heavy rain for 10 or 15 minutes b4 it start leeching through the shoulders, if it were just a light rain I figure you could stand still in it most of the day and stay dry, but once it gets heavy it just overwhelmed the water resistance. As long as it the forecast is not HEAVY Rain, this is an all conditions performing jacket, and I highly recommend it. One other thing is, a lot of people have said the collar is too big and is like a tire around your neck (when the hood is folded inside), this is completely un-true, I wear the collar up, and folded down, it folds down quite easily and stays there until I am cold enough to flip it up again. It is not big and fat as some may suggest, and wow does it keep you neck warm!
