TGIF Summer Soft Shell Sale! Say that 3 times fast! Summer is a great season for a soft shell, but have you ever wondered what a soft shell is or which one might be best for you?

Most people probably own a hard shell, which is anything windproof and waterproof. These are great for very wet, windy or cold conditions because they protect you from the elements. But hard shells don’t breath well while you’re exerting lots of energy. They protect you from getting wet on the outside, but if the garment doesn’t breath well enough, you’ll get wet from sweating on the inside.

Soft shells are great for conditions where you might get a little wind or rain, but when you are just as concerned from sweating on the inside. They’ll cut the wind and shed light precipitation, but breath much better than hard shells. They are perfect for conditions between clear sunny skies, and full on rain and wind, which is to say, the conditions we find a lot in the mountains.

There are two main types of soft shell- those with a membrane, and those made of stretch woven fabrics. Membranes are more wind and waterproof, like a rain jacket, but don’t breath as well as stretch wovens. Stretch wovens are not completely wind or waterproof, but they breath better than membranes. Which is best? Depends on how much weather protection you want. If you run warm, and don’t mind getting a little wind or precip through your jacket, stretch wovens are great. If you run colder, or the conditions are wetter or windier, you might want a soft shell with a membrane. Membraned pieces are better for winter since they are more wind and waterproof. Stretch woverns are good for summer, since they breath better in warm weather.

Since soft shells breath better, and protect you from wind and water well enough, you don’t have to stop and change layers as often. If there’s a chance you’ll encounter really wet or windy conditions, it’s always good to have a hard shell if things really get rough.

Here at SMS, we have a wide variety of soft shell options, and they’re on sale at 20% off through July 10th!! Grab one before they’re gone!

Regular Price: $80.00 – $185.00
