A versatile winter soft shell
Bought specifically for winter walking in Britain, this jkt has proved itself on both milder days (worn over a thick base layer) or on very cold ones (worn over both a base and a midlayer). On the latter days, when the wind chill has been considerable, I did not have to resort to putting on a hard shell over it even though the moisture in the air was freezing on it. The hood, like all ME ones, fits perfectly and in addition to allowing good vision it is also warm with its waffle backer. Advised by another reviewer, I bought a large size rather than my normal medium which is ideal for layering.
