    Westcomb Apoc Jacket - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
    Rated3out of5byfromWould have been four stars but for the trim fitBeautifully made jacket, a work of art! And the fabric is soft, gorgeous. And it's surprisingly light. But just be aware that while the chest of my jacket (a large) was sufficiently roomy, the cut of the jacket tapers in somewhat at the waist and hips. If you are slim to average build, the jacket should be fine. But I'm a couple of inches larger than I should be at the waist, and layering a fleece jacket underneath was something of a struggle. The trim fit is a trend in the industry that I think is a mistake, and Westcomb aren't the only ones guilty of this. I'm just going to keep looking for a jacket as well-made as the Apoc but with more room to layer.

    Rated5out of5byfromNeoShell is GreatI could write a lengthy review that speaks to the great performance of this jacket, but it is much easier to say it is just wonderful. First serious use with this item was skiing in Utah for a week, where conditions ranged from cold (<10*) to warm (50*). I wore the same outfit constantly and experienced very little sweating, while out 6+ hours each day. To put it succinctly, the temperature control that this jacket gives you is unrivaled..... I can see where the gnarliest of conditions would give people pause due to the softshell material. So far for me it is fine (nicks on trees and branches while skiing). The bottom line here is if you tend to heat up quite a bit in winter conditions while active and want something to help you combat large temperature fluctuations I haven't had a better product. In addition to that I get a lot of compliments at work whenever I wear it (I have a neutral color), so if you are looking for a stylish technical shell this could be for you.

    Rated4out of5byfromFantastic, So FarI feel guilty reviewing this prior to putting it through it's paces. I will upload another review after I have used it more. That being said, this has been a great jacket. First use was on a very humid and warm (80+F) day. The breathability was excellent. Far superior to comparable weight Gore-Tex. The cut is good and the weight is fantastic for spring, summer, and fall use. It also packs relatively small making it a great layer for travel. Pocket design makes it equally at home in the country and city. Zippers are highly functional. The cut also keeps the jacket in place when biking, scrambling, wearing a pack, etc. and does not lift excessively with arm motion. The fit is tight and slim in the sleeves (Compared to most Arc' jackets). Layering more than a light fleece or sweater would not work. I would recommend trying this on. Bottom line, so far this jacket is great and I really hope that the NeoShell becomes more common for waterproofing.

    Rated5out of5byfromBehold - The Holy Grail!Torrential rains and hurricane force winds are childs play for this ultra - lightweight jacket. Extremely packable and blows anything Gore-tex out of the water. The breathability is unmatched amongst all jackets I've ever worn, without feeling any wind pentration. I'm currently using this jacket in the Hindu Kush mountains (sub chain of the Himalayas), with extreme winds and temperature changes and I can not find any faults with this unbelievable jacket. It is very thin so I wear a thick hoody underneath in the colder temps. If you've ever been to this part of the world, you can appreciate a durable, windproof and waterproof product. I don't skimp or go cheap on anything but t-shirts out here. Go with the best and buy this jacket.
