A few months ago I got already my Softshell jacket by HAGLÖFS in use. The windproof Orca model since last November when some Geocaching trips under various weather conditions had to prove.
The Orca is made up of WINDSTOPPER SoftShell material, which both stretchy, waterproof, windproof and breathable. The generous forearm vents can be opened if necessary provide additional breathing room. At the front, the jacket has a waterproof 2-way zipper, as well as 2 padded zipper pockets (also water repellent). Initially, I had some problems to close the jacket because the front zipper is somewhat difficult walking distance. In the meantime, he slides down reasonably well. I find the RV garage not very successful, since I the thin piece of fabric over the RV must fumble.
The collar with soft microfleece lining has a volume control so that the neck can be efficiently protected from draughts.
Soft shell covering Yes 85% of all weather jackets, and I can only confirm that the Orca also keeps this promise. Of-14 ° C, wind, up to light to medium rain jacket from Haglofs held everything. In combination with warm functional underwear by Odlo and Mammut, a tight-fitting fleece, the Orca offers an excellent 3rd layer for fall and winter weather.
I am very pleased with the jacket, but she must be in practice even the backpack test set. So far, I’ve worn only the small backpack with little weight. The soft shell concept convinced me but in any case, already.
