Haglöfs Massif 2008

This soft shell jacket weighs just 608g; Gore Windstopper fabric is very wind- and water-resistant; insulated lining; durable; very long side/pit zips; Velcro on cuffs; lined collar with useful drawcord . But small chest pocket; hip pockets easily obstructed by hipbelts or harness; no hood.
Verdict
Useful fabric for Alpine and winter use, but pocket access is limited with harness or rucksack belts, making it a more general-purpose top.
