Black Diamond sent out a few sample jackets to get us pumped for their foray into outerwear. What they didn't know is that we were already pumped. But oh well, I'll take it. I got my hands on the Solution Hoody towards the end of last winter and was able to put it through its paces.... or through my paces. My paces include dealing with juice spills, daily commutes, coffee spills and a hike every now and then. Results: the Solution is an excellent mid-layer fleece that can stand up to daily rigors and excels as an insulating layer under a shell.
So sorry, but only 4 items are allowed for comparison. I blame the gnomes and so should you.
