The versatile Audax softshell jacket is ideal for cooler temperatures in fall and winter. It has a warming fleece coating on the inside and is water-repellent from the outside and yet is breathable. On the shoulders, seams have been eliminated so that the carrying of backpacks or vests is possible without pressure points. A wind shield prevents cold air from entering the zipper. The pocket configuration is well thought-out, upper arm pockets with zipper and Velcro and holder with additional insert for ballpoint pens. The low profile front pockets fit seamlessly into the overall picture of the jacket.
