Topic - Summer Alpine Softshell jackets?

echo34 - on 07 Feb 2014
I've been looking for a new lightweight softshell jacket for use in summer alpine conditions, as well as general use in the UK. My current jacket is polartec powershield, and I like it a lot, but it can get a little sweaty when working hard in warmer conditions. I am ideally looking for something that offers enough protection from cold winds up high (4ooom peaks) but is breathable enough to not get soaked with sweat on alpine approaches and glaciers.

I've been looking at some powershield pro jackets but they all seem very heavy, and I think these will be too warm for summer use. Can anyone recommend anything lightweight (around 400g?) with good weather protection, a helmet compatible hood, and good breathability?
