Reviews for Mens Vulcan Softshell Jacket

Vulcan Softshell

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.

Pretty good but not perfect

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

ME Vulcan Soft Shell

Great jacket snug alpine fit, my jacket was sized large and I'm a 43 chest and was a snug fit could get a micro fleece underneath at a push. Very windproof and flexible and will stretch with arms reaching up. Arms are a good length as I'm 6ft with ape arm and this was plenty long enough. Still haven't worked out how to roll up the hood! Nice Jacket!

Great bit of kit especially as I found it £90 under rrp

Another fantastic jacket from mountain equipment. I bought this softshell to replace my Berghaus valparola softshell when the stitching eventually rotted, the Vulcan fits beautifully and is extremely comfortable when the temp begins to drop! I find the Zips some of the easiest to use of all the top brands (some of them can be a bit fiddly) pit zips work very well and pockets are a useable size. Very happy with this purchase I had free delivery and it reached me in less than 24 hours.
