Every adventurer needs a softshell in their wardrobe. Softshells feature fabrics that are tightly woven for extended warmth, allowing them to double as both an insulator and an outer layer. Rather than dressing in multiple layers on cooler days, dress in a single softshell jacket that's lightweight, breathable and comfortable. Softshells are uniquely engineered to block wind better than traditional fleece and may be topped with waterproof coatings for coastal and offshore wear. Remember, softshells are NOT suitable as foul-weather gear, but are versatile mid-layers that may be worn year-round when paired with the proper layers.
