This Goldilocks Softshell Squashes Shoulder-Season Chill
Our take When you’re on the move in shoulder-season temps, in some cases a shell plus a puffy is overkill, however a shell alone won’t provide adequate warmth. Enter this lightly-insulated softie, which packs a great deal of heat into a streamlined plan. The Marmot WarmCube Novus Hoody has a spot of cube-shaped baffles on the back, which are stuffed with synthetic 40-gram Primaloft Black Eco insulation. The style traps air in deep channels between the squares, even when you’re using a pack, and it kept us toasty down to the teenagers as we treked without adding too much bulk. “On a warm, 25 ° F trek up Missoula, Montana’s Mt. Jumbo in a foot of snow, I could wear it a lot longer than other shells without getting clammy thanks to the airy nylon face fabric,” one tester states. “And it seemed like a warm blanket at the summit and throughout the descent.” When we weren’t moving hard– fall fly-fishing on the Huge Blackfoot, or chilly camp mornings– it kept us warm down to about 40F.
The details The WarmCube Novus Hoody has two hand pockets and a soft, lined inner pocket (excellent for stowing away sunglasses), a cinchable hem, and flexible cuffs that keep wind out. A non-adjustable elastic hood fits over a helmet, however we wished we might batten it down in horizontal snow. The 20-denier nylon face material managed bushwhacking through broken branches without snagging, and its elastic product never ever disrupted casting or reaching when we fished. $250; Purchase Now in men’s and females’s
