Most versatile and comfortable cool to cold weather (50's to 20's) running jacket I've ever had. Have tried softshells and ultralight hardshells. The softshells were too breathable and the hardshells not breathable enough.
Baseplate jacket solved those problems for me. With the right baselayers and cap/hat, this jacket helps you stay comfortable in windy and below freezing temps to mild, drizzly conditions. The configuration of the hard and soft shell fabrics is perfect - and somehow the stretchy softshell areas breathe AND still don't allow too much cold air in - while also repelling light rain.
