SOFT SHELL

The primary benefit of a shoft shell is that the fabric sheds weather but still stretches and breathes at an elevated rate during mountain activity. This performance attribute is why First Ascent stretch-woven soft shells are such perfect choices for cold-weather activities that require constant temperature regulation and liberating stretch.

STORMREPEL

Durable, Water-Repellent Finish

Our StormRepel DWR finish sheds moisture so it doesn't soak into the fabric.

"My favorite jacket for everything. I loved the versatility of the original Sandstone, and by adding a stretchy hood, we have extended the range of this soft shell to the highest of mountains."

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Sandstone Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

5' 8", 170 lbs, muscular/stocky. I bought Large and it's great. Comfortably roomy fit but not baggy. Solidly made. I wish there was a small adjustment cord for the hood and better wrist closures -- these are just elastic that I'm afraid may loosen up/stretch out over time. It's a bit short compared to other jackets, but I was looking for that. If you're tall, that may be an issue. Material is thin softshell: I'm going to use it for hiking and cross-country skiing in the winter over an underlayer and a very light (100 weight) fleece.

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Sandstone Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

I read the reviews and decided to buy this jacket for my husband who wanted something light and easy to carry but would keep him warm in the evening. This is perfect. The hood is a nice addition. The jacket can be stuffed into a backpack and still come out unwrinkled.

My Favorite Outdoor Piece

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Sandstone Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

This is an outstanding performance jacket across a wide range of environments. I've worn it everywhere from big mountains in Alaska to quiet trout streams in the Northeast. For the mountains, it's my three season working layer, and in summer it provides enough warmth for most cooler evenings in camp or town. The stretch and breathability are outstanding, and it works as a surprisingly element-resistant shell when layered over a light insulating piece. If they asked I might have made the hood a little larger for better helmet compatibility (like the thermal sandstone), but the opposite approach they've taken - snug and streamlined - fits nicely under a helmet.

EB really hit the mark with this from a technical standpoint, and its also a great looking piece you could throw on over a t-shirt or collared shirt and wear around town. The non-hooded version is also a great option if you're a helmet under the hood person, or for running.

    I have this jacket without the hood and I love it. Love the way it repels rain and prevents the jacket from sticking to you. Only wish the hood wasn't as form fitting and could be adjusted. But I bet I won't be complaining when standing in a downpour watching my daughter's soccer game!
