I want to get this for my dad, but it’s cool enough that I’d quickly steal it back from him if I don’t see him wearing it enough. I like its basic design, and that it doesn’t pretend to be anything but a reliable, comfortable softshell jacket. Wear it over a baselayer for ascending or layer underneath for general use. The helmet-compatible hood and fleecy lining are nice storm-day features. And it’s decidedly non-techie looking, so you won’t feel like a pretentious dweeb wearing it out on the town.-S.B.
