"Bought if for a fleece, got a softshell too!"
Great all around fleece and the water repellency is ridiculous!I originally bought it for an insulatory layer to go over my other IB base layers and assumed it would be somewhat resistant but wasn't expecting too much. Out of the box and under the faucet it didn't let a drop through after over a minute! I compared it to another 320 weight Icebreaker and a traditional synthetic fleece from Patagonia and it was MUCH more water resistant and dried a lot faster. It was almost as water resistant as my Marmot softshell!Only drawback is its like a normal fleece and the wind can get through, will definitely take that thought for how breathable and warm it is!
