What is the difference between a softshell jacket and a jacket?
Softshell jackets are built of a more flexible and softer fabric than their hardshell counterparts. Our hardshell jackets are often wind-resistant or windproof, with a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish that makes for a great rain jacket. In cooler weather, a quilted puffer jacket or an anorak is great for layering over a softshell jacket. As the temps really drop, winter jackets like a parka or ski jacket are the way to go.
What are some of the benefits of a men's lightweight jacket?
Men's lightweight jackets bring a lot to the outerwear table. They offer more breathability than a windproof coat or a leather jacket, making them perfect sportswear for pairing with other training gear. A more slim-fit style means a softshell can easily act as a liner or base layer under an insulated jacket for conquering black diamond trails on a ski run. They're also easier to pack than a midweight or heavyweight jacket, taking up less space in your carry-on luggage.
