Discontinued. A weather-resistant soft shell with a brushedmerino wool lining, Icebreaker's Kenai jacket combines sophisticated styling with moisture-wicking warmth for cold days in the city or the mountains.

Very well made with Icebreaker's usual fine attention to detail. The water resistance works well in light to medium rain. Because it's a soft shell, it's not as stretchy as some of their other jackets, so you may want to size up if you're between sizes or want to wear heavy underlayers. (I got a small and it fits well, but I wouldn't really be able to wear a bulky sweater underneath.) I like the design of the longer sleeves, since it prevents any gaps between the wrist cuff and your gloves. Also, the product description very specifically says the jacket is a "weather-resistant soft shell," so I'm not sure why anyone would expect something plush. Not sure it's fair to give a low rating when you didn't read the description properly.

This would be an awesome jacket but the design is off. The shoulders and the collar seemed bulky and not form fitting. The sleeves were also extra long which needed to be rolled back. To bad for these issues because the jackets function is great. It seemed very water repellent and the warmth of the wool lining makes it comfortable temperature.
