Waterproof softshells come full of convenient features that make them an excellent addition to any outdoorsmen’s wardrobe. From a mesh liner and stretchy... outer fabric that promotes mobility, to a spacious chest pocket for practical storage, these jackets are designed with the outdoor gear head in mind.
