    i'm looking for a softshell jacket for fall/early winter, and fuck man is it hard to pick one. i bought a patagonia adze jacket today but when i got it home and put it on for a while, the zipper guard at the collar kept poking my neck/chin and it was irritating as shit.

    i tried on a marmot prodigy jacket in june at an outfitter while i was on vacation but i didn't buy it. now i think that's the one i want but i can't find it in the color i want except at rei, where it's $200 (for a jacket that i could have gotten for $120 anywhere else before it sold out).

    and i'm not buying a gay north face jacket and the columbia softshell is either too short if i get the xl or too long if i get the xlt.

    i don't mind the black diamond krag, but it's super lightweight and i want a midweight softshell.

    That's a winter coat for me. I have a 3 year old North Face that I wear about 3 days a year. It's rough living in the South.

    I still have a down coat that I had when I moved South. I've never worn it. It probably wouldn't fit anymore anyway.:oops:
