This is a great all around jacket. I wear it for all sorts of sports including cross country and downhill skiing. But I also wear it regularly as a winter coat and find it more than warm enough for all but the coldest of days in New England. I suspect the real key to the jacket is the fact that it keeps all the wind out and does so well.
Some the of features I particularly like is the placement of weatherproof yet stretchy fabric around the arms and side torso. This allows the jacket to fit snugly while still moving during activities. A smaller but other nice detail are the form fitting fleece cuffs. These cuffs are really comfortable around the wrists and keep all the warmth in.
The key to any soft shell is fit. This jacket fits snug and is really made for a thin layer underneath. I suspect comparable jackets like the Marmont Sharp Point work better for someone looking to add a layer.
But overall this is a great jacket. I highly recommend it
