The Haglofs Gecko Hood Jacket is one of our mid to heavyweight softshell jackets with the thicker fabric providing a higher level of protection from wind and showers while keeping the wearer dry and at a comfortable temperature.
Another reason it's on the heavier side is because it has a fleece backer which feels soft against your skin and has a nice stripey two-tone pattern to it. A good hood also adds towards the weight, and in this case, you get a hood with a reinforced peak and cinch cords at the back and round the face so that it moves with you.
Softshells like this need to fit reasonably snuggly to get the best out of them as they need to shift perspiration from the skin while not allowing wind and rain through the other way. Ideal for changeable conditions when engaging in active pursuits, it will keep you comfortable when a hardshell would overheat, and eliminates the need of taking your hardshell on and off as the weather varies.
