SUMMIT SOFTSHELL JACKET
- Product Review (submitted on July 3, 2019):
- I received one of these jackets as a Christmas present from my wife Amanda. We had been looking at similar products when we found this one. Most of them were at least twice the money as the Condor. I have been out to shoot with this jacket twice now and I feel that it functions perfectly. Water beads up and rolls off this jacket and yet it still seems to breath well. The cut is good for shooting sports(not so overly long at the waist that it interferes with drawing or re-holstering a side arm) and the sleeves hang close to the arms without a lot of unnecessary bulk. An added bonus of the material used is that it is nearly silent in motion. Most waterproof shells make a lot of noise as you move. The placement of the pockets is perfect for those that wear tactical vests or plate carriers. Most if not all are still accessible to the wearer. The MP3 pocket works well and it is nice to be able to route the cables thru the jacket interior. The one thing that sort of bugs me is that cold air seeps into the jacket @ the under arm zippers and you can really feel it when wearing a short sleeve shirt as a base layer. No big deal, now I just wear a long sleeve as my base. All in all this is a very nice jacket that will perform as well if not better that it's more expensive competition. Thanks Condor for another great product!!
