Interesting take on a Softshell -- people love them in the UK

Verified Buyer Reviewed by senorblastico from Western Washington on Tuesday, November 1, 2016
I had read quite a bit about vapour rise products before ordering -- in the UK a lot of climbers and walkers love them for their wind resistance, breathability, and moisture wicking. That all sounded good but I guess I was expecting something more like a traditional softshell and this is not that. It consists of a thin pertex exterior with a decently thick tricot liner on the inside of the jacket. The liner is a drop liner and hangs loosely from the exterior fabric. All in all it feels like a windshirt with a loose fleecy lining (it's kind of odd). If you don't mind the alternative approach to the softshell it probably be a pretty versatile active shell for cool weather.
