    Softshell Recommendation Please

    Hi gang,

    I'm in the market for a new soft shell jacket suitable for hiking and occasional ice climbing.

    Should have a few pockets but not much insulation I layer as needed.

    Do any of you folks have a fave soft shell you would recommend?

    Thanks, cb

    If you know how to layer, then you just need a simple shell like this: https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/1156...rchTerm=anorak

    I've had this one for close to 10 years and love it. This is the closest, (possibly same) available now. Not a heavily insulated jacket. New, it was extremely wind resistant and decently water resistant.
    Has lost much of that now, may need a new one myself.
