Softshell Jackets

The high-tech amalgamation of a fleece and a rain jacket, a soft-shell is the perfect piece of kit for aerobic activities in cold, wet weather. Black Diamond and Patagonia are the unsung heroes of the soft-shell world for their protective, climbing-focused designs that are comfortable, breathable and water resistant. While a soft-shell can't protect you as much as a good hard-shell, it's a great companion for alpine climbing or mountaineering, where you might want to remove a layer for a better range of movement, but still need protection from the elements.
