Live Your Adventure®

With stretch, breathability, and weather resistance, the versatile range of soft shell jackets is legendary. But the Sandstone Hooded Jacket is as an even more indispensable utility piece due to a low-pro stretch hood that fits under a climbing helmet. Targeted technical features focus the performance on moving fast in the alpine.

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 Men's Sandstone™ Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

    I was hesitant about this jacket because other reviewers had complained it was too thin, especially at this price point. I will admit, it does seem a bit thin, but it's not meant to be an insulated piece. This is a great outer layer when your main concerns are wind and/or rain, but you don't want to overheat. It's perfect for activities like biking or hiking that get your pulse up because it breaths well and wont hold in the sweat. Also, the fit is perfect and it very durable. My only complaint is that the hood is a bit small...fits well under a helmet but not over. Overall a really great jacket and worth the price.

    Comments about Men's Sandstone™ Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

    I chose the sandstone hoody over the non hooded jacket for the extra versatility and protection. At 5'10" and 250 I went with a xxl so I could layer under with a flux 40 or light fleece. Fit is abit roomy. I could have went with a xl. Overall build quality is good. Wind protection is good for its intended use (mild conditions and high aerobic activities). This is not for rain it will soak through. Breathability is great.

    Comments about Men's Sandstone™ Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

    I ordered a Medium Tall (MT) and it fit much smaller than a normal EB MT. Returned for a LT. Otherwise great jacket. Very minimalist compared to the softshell it replaced. Super light and packs down small. Will be used for hiking, backpacking and mountaineering.

    Comments about Men's Sandstone™ Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

    Got this mostly to wear in the transition seasons here in Alaska. Mostly wear it to work, but use it on the trail. Took a beating when exploring off trail in an Alders grove, but still looked great with no show of abuse. Fits a little baggy for a large, but good for layering. Great improvements compared to the last Sandstone I bought. Only negative is for a bearded guy with glasses, the hood only helps when I wear a hat and I can't zip it up all the way.
