It has everything you want in a softshell - it's sleek and hi-tech looking, water-resistant, and has pockets where you need them. It is also designed to fit both men and women (I don't know how they pulled that off, but it does look as flattering on me as it does on D.I., and D.I. looks incredibly cool in it, too, not to mention that it's comfortable.)
Just for fun, we did a little test with it and held the sleeve under a running tap. The water beaded and rolled off, and the fabric didn't even feel the least bit damp. This will keep the weather off you without any bulk to drag you down. Highly recommended.
