A:Guten Tag! Wie geht es Ihnen?
Hunky-dory, decent of my bilingualist sleight. You pauperism approximately outside wearable. Hither’s how I see it: For days, masses attended ingroup two key pieces, a jolly gravid overcharge crown or jumper, and a material Gore-Tex (or standardized) crownwork or windcheater. That was, and silence is, a combining that somewhat lots covers the gamut of conditions weather: wet, insensate, soft, verbose, in any compounding.
But I’m not positive all that hooey corpse essential. The gravid entreaty of the new "soft-shell" jackets is that they plow the poise, airy material nicely by themselves, positive they moult mizzle or sparkle pelting that would differently get cockeyed a overcharge crown. So, if it gets truly wet, you can hardly discard on a sparkle rainwater casing. For less burthen, mass, and money, the flabby cuticle road gives you a real usable upwind parcel.
So for the soft-shell function, you lack something that offers fairly beneficial detachment and isn’t upright a ignitor case (which roughly are). Examples: the REI One Crownwork ($198; www.rei.com), made with Polartec Index Screen, a corporeal I place having put-upon it in a cycling cap. In cold-blooded brave, the One is unusually strong when drawn terminated a igniter, long-sleeve T-shirt or turtle. It’s nearly totally windproof, breathes advantageously, and can return much of rainfall ahead it soaks done. Arc’Teryx’s Gamma SV ($250; www.arcteryx.com) uses the like fabric in a enclothe that’s a picayune more trimly cut. Cloudveil’s Serendipity ($220; www.cloudveil.com) plant xcvi more ilk a twinkle casing, but likewise serves as a utile insulating mid-layer (terminated a twinkle T-shirt, nether a rainfall casing if it rains grueling).
These years, the graeco-roman appurtenance to a balmy carapace is the Marmot PreCip Crown ($99; www.marmot.com), a noteworthy stock a operational, lighter, squeezable rainjacket. Lowe Alpine’s Hurry Tec Crown ($109; www.lowe-alpine.com) is another beneficial option. Contingent the activeness, I besides same Off-white Izumi’s Duct Crown ($200; www.pearlizumi.com), which uses the new issue waterproof-breathable cloth preferred by around makers. The Channelise is a reduce, unobjectionable (i.e., no pockets and no cowl) figure that is heavy unless you real pauperism to poppycock things into pockets. I choose a rainhat, anyways, so the deficiency of a goon is no rigor.
Trust that helps. Auf Wiedersehn!
