This premium soft-shell jacket has an active fit.

It stays close while the stretchy wind stopper fabric allows for plenty of movement. Great for windy and damp conditions.

As you would expect from the professionals at Mountain Equipment the hood is helmet compatible and in keeping with the rest of the jacket boasts a brushed lining for next to skin comfort. The cuffs combine Velcro adjustment and elasticated for the best fit even when repeatedly stretching your arms. You're gonna get warm in this jacket but the pit zips allow for quick ventilation. Handwarmer pockets work together with an internal chest and external Napoleon pocket.

Very good at stopping wind and wind chill. Not as robust hard wearing as many of a similar weight and cheaper. Comparing Windstoppers breathability to alternative Soft-shell outers is a bit like comparing straight Goretex to Plastic Sheeting. IE it is Nowhere near as breathable as alternative face fabrics sued on most Softshells. I can see this jacket being a fashionable and decent choice for cold weather climbing in Dry but Cold Climates. I would happily wear it Skiing or Ski Mountaineering as well. However, as an outer shell, get a more robust Heavyweight soft-shell for more durable and flexible use or get a hard shell as The breathability will be no worse it won't be significantly colder as it will stop just as much wind and it will keep you dry. Overall more fashion than a fully functioning soft-shell.

Windproof but not as warm as my previous softshell. Its quite a thin layer which is good for weight but it does mean you're more likely to need another layer underneath to stay warm. The cuff velcro is also positioned a little high up rather than right at the end of cuff so you kind of pinch it tight around the wrist with the cuff then sticking out slightly below. Having the hood rollable is a good touch
