The Boundary has a really soft fabric, with a great feel that’s more akin to a sweater than a jacket, albeit with a decent amount of stretch. The DWR coating does shed rain, although anything more than the lighter showers we tested it in and we suspect the seams will leak first. Warmth levels are decent with fleece backing providing a bit of insulation, although the wind blocking properties of the fabric were not the best. The collar, hem and cuff adjustments help batten down the hatches.
Fabric: Woven soft shell
