The Reiner Soft Shell from Pentagon is what I would describe as a very capable light jacket. It is designed as a mild-cold climate jacket and gives the user options; it is not too warm and breaths well when worn in conjunction with a T-shirt or base layer, while on the move, yet can be very cosy when used with an additional fleece on the colder days. It is available in grindle green (on test), black or coyote and the outer layer is constructed of breathable Storm Tex membrane, which provides a decent level of protection from the elements. This membrane works well with the internal super fine Grid-Tech fleece lining, to provide what is described as “exceptional thermal protection and body moisture management”. Temperature can also be controlled with the use of the zipped vents under each arm.
The jacket features a high collar, which can be adjusted to keep the draft out by using an elastic cord and lock. There is a very nice fleece chin guard to stop the zip rubbing on your face, a clever feature that makes the jacket even more comfortable. The hem of the jacket is also adjustable using an elastic cord, whilst the sleeves are adjusted using Velcro.
There is a selection of functional pockets on the jacket, which include a single chest pocket with a wiring eyelet, so that you can feed something like headphones from the pocket to the inside of your jacket. There are two pockets on the left sleeve, one of which includes a Velcro panel for patches of your choice. Importantly, there are your two traditional hand warming pockets, as well as two large pockets on the inside of the jacket.
