The things that make the Easy Sonic Softshell perfect for the active outdoor life also make it pretty great for everything else! Let's examine the evidence...
So, let's begin with the fabric: Jack Wolfskin's FlexShield Softshell has loads of bounce and stretch to it, so for climbing, scrambling and anything where you need to reach without restriction, it's ideal. However, would you ever want a jacket that stops you moving comfortably? Of course not!
The tightly woven nylon is very durable so it's great when you're moving through a rugged environment, but you're never going to want a jacket that wears out easily! The tight weave also keeps out the wind while still allowing it to breathe, and this is complemented by a water repellent finish: obviously this is useful for outdoor sports, but it gets damp and windy in towns and cities too.
The Easy Sonic is light and packable, so it stows easily in your rucksack or travel luggage... but it also stows away easily in your bag when you're on the train too. The cut is, simple, sleek and fitted. If you're wearing a climbing harness or rucksack, this means a lack of uncomfortably bunched fabric or rubbing seams, as well as less chance of snagging on rocky edges. It also means it's flattering and feminine, and looks great!
So: comfortable movement, weather protection, breathability, packability and a plain and simple cut. Perfect for the great outdoors, naturally, but perfect for everything else too!
