Montane's Alpine Stretch Jacket is a midweight softshell thats extremely comfortable and packed with well-thought out design features. The fabric itself is called Chameleon, which has a durable water repellent coating giving the jacket its softshell credentials. The fabric is quite thin so I'd buy this jacket more for its warmth, wind resistance and features than expecting it to deal with anything more than a light shower.
Having said that the fit and features are superb, especially the hood, which has an around the head cinch cord so that it moves with you. The cuffs are simple velcro and there's a one-handed cinch cord at the hem.
Very well finished and a good design - looking forward to seeing the fabric under test.
