Closeouts. The Mountain Hardwear Verglas jacket offers a windproof, water-resistant Conduit® soft shell, making it an excellent option for ice climbing, Nordic skiing and other cool weather activities.
Conduit® soft shell is more breathable than a hard shell

Bought two of these for my twin daughters. They were not thrilled, as they wanted fleece jackets. Then they had to wear them while waiting for the bus and all of a sudden figured out that the soft shell was actually warmer because it did a better job keeping the wind off of them. Then they found out...

I thought this would be good jacket for snowshoeing and cross country skiing, but it doesn't have enough pockets, or closure features (just a zipper). The weight is nice and the backing is warm so it would work otherwise.
Best Uses: Casual Wear, Cold Weather
Cons: Did not like large collar, Not enough features

Jacket is well-made, but I originally purchased this as an outer layer for skiing. I will probably use my other *insulated* ski parka for my upcoming trip in VERY cold temperatures, but this would likely would well when paired with a lighter fleece mid-layer for spring skiing. I actually think I will use this jacket more while sailing - makes a great foul weather/waterproof/windproof layer.

The fabric is very soft, smooth and comfortable. I am very picky about having ease of movement in my shoulders and this jacket seems to work OK. I got the Small. I am 5'2" and 120-125#. I am short waisted and a little hip-wide and have a little trouble keeping the jacket from riding up when zipped, but it's Ok and I'm keeping it. I get that a lot with jackets. There is no "interior MP3 Pocket" anywhere in this jacket as described in the details (and even on the little tag that came with it). I haven't worn it in the 5 degree weather here yet so I can't comment on temp/comfort. I will only be able to get one good layer under it or maybe two thin layers.
This jacket would not be good for warm days but the cool weather will be perfect to block the elements.

It is actually fairly light for a softshell. It is lightly lined, but not like a thick fleece. I think it would be fine to wear while biking if it's not more than 65 degrees. I wear it with a fleece underneath for biking in 30 degrees :)
