We've singled out RAB's Sentinel Softshell Jacket as one of our top recommendations because it provides exceptional protection, a degree of insulation and a full feature set. We're very familiar with RAB's Matrix fabric and we know its one of the best around.
The Sentinel Jacket is a heavy-weight soft shell jacket with high loft fleece backing that provides wind and weather resistance in tough winter conditions.

The Sentinel Jacket is a rugged softshell jacket that offers high levels of protection in tough winter conditions. Made using Matrix Pro 3 layer laminate softshell fabric which provides really high levels of water resistance without being a true waterproof. The face fabric is made from nylon for increased durability and has a high spandex content for dynamic activities. The back of the inside is made from high loft fleece which adds a good amount of warmth so you don't have to wear as many layers.
Technical climbing features include a fleece lined helmet-compatible hood with a wired peak, a 2 way front zip with internal storm flap, a hem drawcord and velcro adjustable cuffs for increased weather protection. The Sentinel Jacket also features plenty of pockets with 2 internal zipped stash pockets and 2 zipped hand warmer pockets which are also backed with high loft fleece. Their so soft you'll never want to remove your hands!
