advice for a new jacket - suggestions please
I am looking to get a new jacket this fall and would like some suggestions.
I am looking for a softshell that has a hood and has some insulation, but not too much insulation. I would like it to stand up to some wind and light rain. I would also like one of the softer softshells as opposed to the stiffer ones.
I am having a tough time shopping online not knowing what these jackets I am looking at look like.
I figured you guys probably have them all and could throw out some good suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

The search button is your friend. With that said start with the mountain hardwear hooded synchro and start from there

BC.com shift welder is a nice coat, cut more like a hooded sweater more than a jacket.It doesn't matter if you're a king or a little street sweeper...

You got to give him credit, at least he got the forum right.
Go to REI or some such place try on jackets, purchase the one you like. Some people should not shop on-line.
