Softshells are a waste of money UNLESS they follow the five rules in this video. DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND ME! I am a proponent of using whatever jacket is currently hanging in your closet if it means you can go exploring today. If you sense my anger in this video it is due to the fact that corporations are creating and advertising jackets for their largest customer base (non-adventurists) at the cost of quality and features for their intended customer (hikers, climbers, backpackers). So if you are saving up to purchase a technical piece of gear for the outdoors make sure you don't waste your money on something intended for walking around town.

The video may sound like I am arguing against the use of hardshell jackets but I am not. I am simply trying to help you overcome the confusion that gear companies have created when they use the term "soft shell" to define jackets that are essentially hardshells with extra limitations.

Andy Kirkpatrick, one of the best alpinists in the world, wrote a FANTASTIC article on this subject. When I read his article a few years ago it blew my mind and I began putting his writings to the test. Since then, softshells (or maybe I should refer to them as "shelled micropile fleece jackets") have become irreplaceable in my gear closet. If you want to learn more please go read his fantastic article at this link:
