Soft Shell Jackets That Can Be Used Daily, Recommendations?
I am looking at replacing my 2006 Kathmandu Soft Shell Jacket which has seen better days. I wear it as my every day jacket, as it provides decent warmth but I do like the features such as a wind barrier and slight rain resistance, and have been very happy with so far. I also use it for day hikes and outdoor activities as well. I noticed Kathmandu have a sale at the moment and I have my eyes on the newer version of what I currently own: https://www.kathmandu.com.au/mens/jackets-and-vests/mens-sof...
My question is, for the money is the Kathmandu jacket I'm after decent? Or are there better alternatives? The only thing that's keeping me back from getting this jacket is mainly due to the colour (would prefer a single solid colour) to be honest due to the fact that I wear it every day including going to work.
I did stumble onto this link: https://www.switchbacktravel.com/best-softshell-jackets which does give a wide review of different brands and jackets, however I imagine living in Australia I don't have the opportunity to go try them on or buy them easily.
Does anyone have any experience on brands, models or suggestions on what would be best?
