VAUDE Roccia Softshell
As a professional backpacking guide I can state that my Vaude Roccia Softshell jacket meets all my demands. It actually is waterproof during showers - I have yet to try it in classic Icelandic horizontal rain, but so far, so good. The armpit-zip, which goes almost all the way down to my hips is genius. Walking with a load up to 22 kg. on uneven ground and uphill really gets the pump going and then the superior ventilation - increased with open mesh-pockets makes all the difference. The size 52/L fits me perfectly, being 176 cm/76 kg. The jacket is quite light, water- and windproof with superior ventilation - just the piece of clothing one needs on backpacking tours.
Practice and light
Good, but too long back for my taste and my technical garment sizing ...
