Pros: Great fit; light; attractive; great waterproofing
Cons: Not for use in very cold conditions, this is a relatively light shell. Somewhat expensive
This is an outstanding softshell. It fits me like a glove, and is surprisingly warm for such a light/thin shell. It is not a hardshell replacement, but it is robust for such a flexible and light garment. The inside is soft and fleecy but slides over other other layers relatively easily. The cut is generous for a Phenix, and it easily covers my hips, unlike other pieces in this line. I appreciate the extra waterproofing Phenix has built into this jacket.
