Great soft shell

Super comfortable and warm and water resistant even in some heavier showers. All while being light and stylish for around town! As for sizing, I was concerned about buyng an XL, especially to go with the Franconia I ordered because I am closer to an XXL in size and the Franconia is on the snug side (as it is intended). So I was worried the jacket would be too snug with the Franconia underneath. However, after talking with a very informative person on the phone, and discussed how the Washington was made to fit the Franconia under it, I took the chance and I’m very happy I did! The sizing is great and the jacket fits perfectly, even with he Franconia layered underneath. The quality is awesome and it is so great was made in New Hampshire!

wihout compare

I can't compare this to any garment since i have worn it everyday since i bought it 8 months ago. that was winter, this is summer, and I wear it every day. running, hiking, canoeing, woods work: i am wearing it. Its got a good feel next to the skin and the nap gives it some real warmth, and the outer fabric makes it pretty windproof. all in all it is the most useful and effective garment I own.

Washington Outer Layer - Men's

My go to layer

I have had thee Washington for a couple of weeks now, and it has quickly become my go to layer beyond all else. It's been ideal for a trip through huntington's, across Franconia loop, up a few ice climbs and to the grocery store and it exceeded expectations each time.
