Columbia Sierra Falls - Soft Shells: Reviews
Eric Hansen

Meet the jacket version of that warm friendliness Germans call gemütlichkeit. The microfiber inner cuffs are soft and help retain heat, the collar is snug but not too tight, and the fleecy collar caresses bare skin. Testers favored the coziness on gusty alpine ridges, when wind-resistance trumped breathability. 1.3 lbs; www.columbia.com

Bonus: Raise your arms and the sleeves still cover your wrists.

Bummer: External attachment loops (for layering with a Columbia shell) mar an otherwise clean look.
