Condor Summit Soft Shell Jacket

This product was recommended by Bertie Cowan from Effortless Outdoors

This jacket is durable and lightweight and comes at an excellent price. Made from polyester fabric, this jacket is waterproof, breathable, and exceptionally comfortable allowing for a full range of movement. The pockets are fantastic, it fits well, and it holds up well against moisture and wind. I like this jacket doesn’t feel bulky and as it is designed for tactical purposes, this makes a great jacket for hiking, traveling, and trekking.

Pentagon Kryvo Undercover Softshell Jacket

This product was recommended by Lukas from Military 1st

Pentagon Kryvo is a practical softshell jacket specially designed for undercover operations. It has three hidden customisable panels on the chest and back, which can be displayed for identification. This tactical jacket comes with a full-front two-way YKK zipper, two zipped hand pockets and two upper arm sleeve pockets, mesh lining and underarm zip vents, and adjustable cuffs and bottom hem. Moreover, thanks to breathable and water-resistant Storm|Tex membrane Pentagon Kryvo Softshell Jacket provides excellent protection against bad weather.

Tru-Spec Men’s 24-7 Tactical Without Loop Softshell Jacket

This product was recommended by Asmat khan from Wiringo

An excellent, high quality jacket. It’s comfortable to wear, and the collar doesn’t constantly turn towards my neck like a Stormtech competitor jacket I have. There is no lack of pockets or zippers (in some cases too much). I haven’t yet tried the access to the belt functionality as the locale where I was traveling and utilizing the jacket prevented me from having my belt mounted item. It seems that it would be necessary to mount it slightly back from the strong side hip, but again, I have not yet tried this feature.

MAGCOMSEN Men’s Hooded Tactical Jacket

This product was recommended by Alex Perkins from All the Stuff

This Hooded Tactical Soft Shell Jacket from MAGCOMSEN gives you style, great functionality, warmth, and dependability even for the lousiest weather. No need to worry about the wind and rain thanks to the sharkskin softshell fabric, while the inner fleece makes sure you are warm and cozy inside. They didn’t skip breathability and comfort as the jacket has vent zippers under each arm sleeve. The hood is not detachable, but you can hide it inside the collar. It provides plenty of pockets (2 high chest pockets, 2 large back zipper pockets, 2 sleeve pockets, 1 left forearm pocket) to store your various items which makes it a great choice for both tactical and outdoor activities. The jacket also comes with 2 hook&loop tapes, so that you can put a personal touch with your badges.

5.11 Sierra Softshell Jacket

This product was recommended by Newt Borowski from 5.11

The Sierra Softshell from 5.11 offers lightweight weather protection that excels in a wide range of adverse climates. It’s constructed with a 100% polyester stretch-fabric exterior bonded to a polyester micro-fleece inner to offer breathability and comfort. A DWR finish, lined handwarmer pockets, YKK two-way front zipper, and elastic sleeve cuffs help keep out the elements and the 5.11 RAPIDraw System allows quick and easy access to an internal pocket that can be used for personal items or concealed carry. MSRP: $119.99 for men’s. $79.99 for women’s.

Braxton Jacket

This product was recommended by Richard Corrigan from Next Luxury

The Braxton Jacket from 5.11 is an excellent softshell tactical jacket that’s lightweight, durable and extremely functional. It has a clean, minimalist design that doesn’t necessarily call attention to itself as a tactical jacket, so you can wear it in virtually any situation without feeling out of place. It’s warm without being bulky, and is constructed from 100% polyester mini-ripstop fabric with a durable water resistant finish to keep you dry. The pockets are well designed, including two horizontal-zippered chest pockets and two front hand pockets. I love that the hood stows away into the collar when you don’t need it.

Rothco Special Ops Soft Shell Jacket

This product was recommended by Richard Corrigan from Next Luxury

Versatile and highly functional, the Rothco Special Ops Soft Shell Jacket is made for action. It has three layers to deflect weather, wick away moisture and preserve body heat, and 6 outer pockets for all your everyday carry essentials. It has a lot of elements that make it adjustable, including a concealed removable hood, adjustable wrist cuffs and underarm ventilation zippers. As far as appearances go, this is a tactical jacket that definitely looks the part. Color choices include woodland camo as well as digital camo, and features like patchy panels on each arm emphasizes the “tactical” aspect of the jacket.
