This tightly woven soft shell blocks wind, sheds snow, and shelters you from all but the burliest downpours. Made of highly breathable stretch Schoeller® soft shell under the arms, it allows dynamic movement and expels heat easily. The cut is slim to suit layering systems for mountaineering, alpine climbing and backcountry forays.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
|Waterproof with critically taped seams|
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
