First of all, what’s a Soft Shell jacket?
The Soft Shell is a material designed to protect against wind, snow, rain and also, it has a water-repellent function. This material allows effective perspiration and body temperature regulation. The fleece layer is warm, soft and comfortable in contact with the skin.
The advantages of owning a soft shell jacket are many, for example the fact that it’s windproof and breathable, it provides appropriate thermoregulation, it’s made with lightweight and elastic materials, etc. Also the Soft Shell material is water-repellent for protecting from snow and rain.
However, you must keep in mind that this material is not 100% waterproof and it doesn’t guarantee a 100% protection from the rain. The protection level depends from the jacket model and brand, so make sure you read carefully the characteristics before buying. Anyway, if you are looking for a 100% water protection, you should go for a Hard Shell jacket.
Among the qualities mentioned previously, we talked about elasticity and lightness of the material. These two features (as well as others) make the soft shell jackets ideal for sport lovers. In fact, their lightness and elasticity allows a perfect fit on the body, almost like a second skin, and it gives a perfect freedom of action.
