Product Description

The Mountain Hardwear Men’s Chockstone Softshell Jacket/Pullover features an ultralight feel and serious breathability to make it the go-to choice on highly aerobic days. A DWR coating adds an extra helping of weather resistance when you get caught without a hardshell. Mountain Hardwear designed this as a stand-alone piece for mellow conditions with the versatility to become a mid-layer in nasty weather.

Initial Review

My personal experience is with the Chockstone pullover. Its a highly breathable piece that provides some wind resistance and water repellency. Haven't worn it in a downpour, so not sure how long it would take for it to 'wet out'. The material has a soft feel, but has proven to be quite durable. The pullover has an alpine cut, but it still goes on/off easily. It is a great piece for mild weather outings, and can also be utilized in colder conditions as the cut of the pullover makes it layer quite well. I have no complaints, especially given the amount of protection for its weight.
