Nice Trim Fitting Soft Shell

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Craig the Kayaker from Virginia on Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Nice well made trim fitting stretchy soft shell jacket. The material is described as 3 layers, an outer stretchy polyester layer, a waterproof windproof breathable membrane and a fleece interior, all bonded together. It appears to be snug fitting, more than I wanted in my middle age. It is flattering if you are fit and trim. I am 5' 11" and 182 pounds, usually wear a 42 Reg sport coat. This in size Large fit snug but allowed lots of movement and fit well in the shoulders. Trim around the waist. The arms are very long, almost like it was for a tall, they have a velcro type thing to seal them up. Nice wind guard on zipper. The zipped neck fit well on my size 16. The zipper is on the other side per the European style. In addition to the outer pockets there is on the inside right a long sort of pocket from the lining. that could be useful. I wanted to like it a lot and almost kept it but decided I would need to get the sleeves shortened so returned it and will keep looking for something to replace my 9 year old BackCountry softshell that is past its prime.
