Dynafit Speed Softshell Jacket - Women


One common challenge many skiers face is how to stay warm in the backcountry without constantly changing layers. In the alpine, the wind, sun, aspect, and moisture content in the snow all play into how warm (and therefore comfortable) you feel. This isn't all about creature comforts, either. If you're frozen like an icicle, you aren't going to be winning any races (sounds obvious, but oftentimes overlooked by aspiring skimo bros and bras). Lucky for you, the Dynafit Speed Softshell jacket is ready for (nearly) every condition you may run into! Vented down the sides/back and shielded everywhere else, this jacket breathes and insulates in a way that encourages movement. The more you move, the more comfortable you'll feel. Top it off with a flexible stretch construction and skimo specific features (like huge skin pockets) and it's hard to see how the Dynafit Speed Softshell jacket isn't absolutely perfect for backcountry skiing.

  • Built in reflectors make an unfortunate encounter with a snowcat less likely (wear protective lighting, folks).
  • Hybrid construction allows panels made of different material to stretch and move seamlessly together.
  • An elastic hem and stretchy construction means that the hood fits under and over (most) helmets.
  • Windproof paneling on the front of the jacket helps you not overheat when the wind picks up.
  • Giant pockets on the front hold skins for fast and loose race or training descents.
  • Targeted venting and protection balances together to keep you warm and dry.
  • Thumb loops keep sleeves in place and warm air in.

Question from Becca
Hey guys,
Is this jacket's fabric more of a softshell or a wind shirt? I am used to (and would want to compare it to) the BD dawn patrol hoody and the Patagonia Houdini, wanting to find something of that weight (ish) with skin pockets.

Answer from Cole P
Hey Becca, this jacket is much more breathable than the Houdini and the Dawn Patrol which will make this jacket feel less wind resistant. I would categorize this jacket more of a softshell than a wind shirt.
Answer from Becca
Thanks, good info. Is it as packable? Is the fabric thicker than a houdini? More stretchy i assume? Softshell is a broad category haha!!
Answer from Cole P
Becca, I would say this piece is less packable and thicker than a Houdini and more packable and thinner than the Dawn Patrol. It has great four-way stretch and is designed to be worn both skinning and skiing. It has a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating which offers great water resistants while still providing superior breathability.
Answer from Becca
