The Black Diamond Crag Jacket, aka the soft shell that I will be buying this year, is a super warm everyday fleece. Utilizing Polartec Windbloc technology, it is fully windproof while maintaining an impressive warmth-to-weight ratio. There's nothing worse than walking around downtown and hitting a stiff breeze that chills you to the bone.... then you have to do that goofy run with your shoulders up, head down, and hands in your pockets. Well, there are some things that are worse (animal maulings come to mind), but wouldn't you love to not have to do that silly run again? The internal media pocket is icing on the cake.
