Patagonia Figure 4

This soft shell weighs 460g; water-resistant and windproof fabric; fleece-lined collar for extra comfort; glued seams for softer feel and less bulk; Velcro adjustable cuffs; small chest pocket for compass; waist pockets for maps; collar drawcord; excellent movement in sleeves. But waist pocket access is obscured with rucksack belts; no hood.

Verdict: Buy it if you want a lightweight, windproof, durable layer, but don’t need the best pockets.
