light technical shell
This is my fifth soft shell. I also own Mammut, Arc'teryx, Hagloff, Patagonia and Mountain Equipment gears.
Will reference to all the other soft shells, this is one of the very good ones that I've worn so far. It offers a very light texture while being secure by its Gore-Tex. At times you forget that you're wearing it. It has a generous fitting compared to my Mammut gore-text soft shell.
I wear it mainly for MTB, light jogging and casual daily walks. It suits all those purposes.
Frankly, it's ideal to have all categories of gore-tex (pactlite, pro and etc) but if you're intending to buy only one item, it would most likely be this shell because of its competitive price. I mean north face, new generation zipper and Gore-tex for this price you can't argue.
