Some time ago, we wrote an article on soft shell jackets for sport lovers. Featured there were over ten of the best jackets for men who enjoy challenging themselves no matter the weather or terrain.
Now, it is time to take a look at eight soft shells, this time for women who enjoy sports.
The brands we have selected these jackets from are renown for their outdoor clothing. Most of them have been previously featured in our reviews and selections and let us tell you, for very good reasons. Now let’s get started!
* Note: The availability of the clothes (including colors and sizes) might change at any time. Also please check the clothes’ materials and features on the various shops before buying. We do our best to assure the accuracy of our articles, but sometimes they might contain errors.
Geographical Norway Softshell Outdoor Rain Sports Jacket for Women
First up we have GeNo-24, by Geographical Norway. This soft shell is made of 96% Polyester and 4% Elastane for the outer shell, which comes with Dry-Tech 5000 membrane. This technology makes the jacket highly water-resistant and windproof. However, it also plays a role in breathability, too. The inner lining is 100% Polyester fleece, warm and insulating.
There is a detachable hood on the stand-up collar, which comes with chin guard for protection. The main zipper is water-resistant and concealed. There are three outer pockets and inner pockets as well. On the sleeves, shoulders and back there are reflectors, to keep you safe at night.
Both the hood and back are lined with fleece, for extra protection. The cuffs are elastic, while the hem is adjustable by drawstrings. This design is available in the colors: Dark grey, Black, Green, Orange and White.
Ultrasport Estelle Softshell Jacket for Women
Estelle is a versatile soft shell by Ultrasport. It is made of 96% Polyester and 4% Elastane on the outside, with Ultraflow 5000 membrane. This membrane is waterproof and windproof, making this a sturdier soft shell than most. The inside is lined with 100% Polyester microfleece, soft and anti-pilling.
What’s a bit different about Estelle, is the design. It looks very casual, so it can be worn as a daily jacket, with a pair of jeans and you’re good to go. There are two side pockets with zipper closures, while the main zipper is concealed and water-resistant.
The collar is hooded, adjustable and has chin guard in front, to prevent chaffing from the zipper. The cuffs are elastic and the sleeves a tad bit oversized for better movement. The color options are: Brown, Black, Grey, Turquoise, Dark taupe, Navy and other varying options of these colors.
