5 of 5 The Softshell other softshells pray to! January 16, 2020
Reviewer: Joe F from Utah, United States  
I have owned a lot of softshell jackets and this one is BY FAR the best.  The style is very unique without being over-the-top and of course functionally it's perfect.  A lot of stretch so it's very comfortable and even though it's not very insulated it is fleece backed so in the fall it works great as a stand alone piece.  Layered with their fleeces for the winter and you're set.  I always get a ton of, "where did you get that jacket" comments when I wear it.  I will say it is not waterproof, but anyone who is familiar with softshells knows they aren't meant to be (nor does Kitanica claim it to be).  You gain more breathability that way.  So, for an active shell this is perfect.  If you need heavy waterproof buy a 2.5 or 3 layer hardshell and layer over this guy.  Oh, and when they release one in black I'll definitely have two of them.

5 of 5 High quality, functional. June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Hawk Pilot from Mckinney , TX United States  
The American Softshell is a well made, light weight shell.  I am 5.’8” with heavy muscular chest and arms. I ordered size large as I wanted a slim fit. It fits well without excessive baggy fabric at waist. Just be aware that this jacket is a shell and isn’t on its own a significant source of insulation. If you intend to use for cold sub freezing weather I’d suggest one size larger to allow more layers. My only complaint I found was the Velcro cinch at wrist have sharp corners and should be trimmed closer to the stitching. Otherwise well worth the price! Color is accurate as well. Great jacket!!!

5 of 5 Great Jacket - would recommend February 2, 2019
Reviewer: David from Austin, TX United States  
I work in the TV/Film industry and I am often outside for 12+ hours. My job requires a lot of fast response and I carry a lot of small pieces of gear that need to be accessed quickly and kept organized.

This jacket does all that and looks great at the same time. It's made well and has plenty of smart storage.

I live in Austin so I need a jacket that's mid weight and not to warm. Our winters are pretty puny I think this will work well for most of the fall, winter and spring.

I'm 5'5" and 140lbs so it's hard to find jackets that fit. I was surprised that the small size fits well, just barely but it fits. Anyone smaller would be out of luck.

4 of 5 Great jacket February 1, 2019
Reviewer: Tom F from Santa Rosa, CA United States  
I cant give 5 stars yet cause I have not fully tested how waterproof it is but in the 1 trap shoot that I was in with a good amount of rain I was not wet, I didn't buy it for rainwear. The jacket is made extremely well, fits as it should and functions great, my main uses are the range and dog walks :)
