Mountain Hardwear's Super Chockstone Full Zip Softshell Jacket is super light and super stretchy with a softshell performance to keep changeable weather at bay.
Mountain Hardwear says: A lightweight, wind-resistant alpine and rock-climbing jacket with UPF 50. The Super Chockstone can do double duty: as a top layer in brisk weather and as a midlayer when the mercury plummets. The double-weave fabric is light, stretchy, and offers excellent mobility for most alpine pursuits. Also: UPF 50 sun protection, and a hem cinch that’s single-hand adjustable.
Mountain Hardwear's Super Chockstone Full Zip Jacket is quite light for a softshell - that means its performance in dealing with drizzle and light showers won't be as good as heavier garments but its highly breathable, super stretchy and a joy to wear. Its completely unrestrictive and it will keep out the occasional shower.
The chest pocket and main zip are a contrast colour, whereas the zippers on the two hand pockets match the main colour of the garment. The binding at the wrist is very neat and there's some stretch in the wrist aperture due to the stretch of the fabric.
The inside of the hand pockets are lined with the same fabric as the jacket - not mesh - and the main hem can be cinched or left to drape. A micro fleece lining to the inside of the collar adds comfort.
The Super Chockstone Full Zip Jacket is a really nice piece to wear for additional warmth and additional protection during Spring or Autumn excursions.
