The Oftord is a heavyweight soft shell, with quite a bulk to the fabric compared to some others. With a mesh lining around the trunk, and fleece lining around the sleeves, this is one of the warmer jackets, although not one of the most breathable or performance-driven. Its waterproof credentials are bolstered with the addition of a more rugged, ripstop style of fabric across the top of the shoulders and arms that help make shedding rain a little easier.
