Id been looking for a softshell jacket for some time and came across this one during a trawl around the internet. With Jack Wolfskin, I can generally rely on their sizing being pretty consistent, so I took the chance and placed an order. The jacket fit as I expected but the weather turned unseasonably warm and so I had to delay testing it out for a few weeks. Ive now tried it as an outer layer when on the move over a single base, and a couple of times as an extra layer at rest stops when wearing base plus lightweight fleece. The jacket is considerably more windproof than any of my light/medium weight quarter-zip fleeces. I like the pocket arrangements and the volume adjuster allows the hood to be adapted to pretty much any requirement. Ive found JW volume adjusters to generally work well on a number of garments. Ive yet to try the jacket as anything other than an outer garment. I think that used as a mid-layer under a waterproof, it would only work for someone who really feels the cold.

Great rucksack at a great price. As a day pack I find it to be easily adjustable to fit my back comfortably. The most comfortable day sack I have ever used! Light weight, well made, useful pockets. Highly delighted with my purchase and the excellent service from eOutdoors. Highly recommended.
