The Mountain Equipment Men's Trojan Jacket is a lightweight soft shell jacket for windproof protection along your favorite hiking routes. The Windstopper X-Fast 230 fabric is super stretchy for unrestricted movement and comfort, while remaining windproof and highly water-resistant, so you no longer fear the sight of darkening clouds. The attached hood is helmet compatible for climbing days and adjusts to prevent it from moving or blowing off at critical times. The active fit runs close to the body, while still allowing for a base layer underneath, and a shell over top. The dual hand pockets and Napoleon chest pocket stay out of the way of pack and harness, so you can get to small essentials at any time. Granola bar, anyone?

Windstopper that doesn't suckForget about what you know about Gore Windstopper. This X-fast fabric stuff was concocted in some deep underground Gore lab, made for cyclists.,,,,It stretches and breathes like a stretchwoven fabric, but blocks wind and precip like a Gore Windstopper jacket. ,,,,Perfect for weather between 20Â°f and 50Â°f. My constant companion when backcountry skiing. Plus it looks nice and attracts the ladies due to it's supple, nicely draping texture.

Great touring and mountaineering softshell , great features, lightweightI'm a big proponent that a 600 dollar hard shell isn't necessary for backcountry skiing. More and more I'm experiencing that soft shell is the way to go for a lot of conditions. Now I never get caught out without my Trojan haha. Unless it's dumping or wet I find this jacket cuts the cold and wind, and unless it's near zero, repels water from snow effectively for my winter purposes. What makes this jacket unique is all it's amazing features. All the zips have long pull, which is simple yet so functional, the pit zips especially are great, never snag and are super easy to open and close on the fly. The hood has multiple adjustment features that work great, and has great peripheral vision. I throw it on at the top of the skin track for the down, and layer up my down if it's needed. Or if it's windy on the skin track I throw it on, and with the breathability of the Windstopper, pit sips and undoing the main zip halfway I'm not sweating. Now I mostly don't even bring a hardshell.
