Industry Reviews

  • Men's Fitness - Full Review 
    • 'The best gear for rugged outdoorsman'
    • 'A quality soft shell gives you an all-in-one solution for those times when you don't want to carry a shell and a puffy.'  
  • Mike Pearl, BackpackGearTest - Full Review
    • 'Once I crossed over onto the exposed ridge above treeline, the wind was howling, covering me in a mist...Cayambe blocked both the wind and driving mist.
    • 'I found the wrist gaiters particularly helpful when it came to warming my hands. They also prevented the wind from blowing up my sleeves.'
    • 'The precipitation changed back and forth from light misting rain to snow to sleet several times. The Cayambe kept all forms of moisture out and my body heat in.'
    • 'Cayambe jacket acted as two items in one. On all these outings I was able to leave behind my rain jacket and down pullover.'
  • Steve Mullen, Trailspace - Full Review
    • 'The jacket was more than capable of keeping me warm riding into the mid to low 30's with a wool base layer.' 
    • 'After standing in the shower for half an hour, I was perfectly dry on the inside' 
  • Marina Batzke, BackpackGearTest - Full Review
    • 'The fleece lining feels very pleasant on the skin.'
    • 'On several occasions, I have put on the Mishmi Takin soft shell jacket to protect myself against mosquitoes.'
    • 'a bit unusual benefit of this jacket is how excellently I can use it as a pillow.' 
  • Richard Lyon, BackPackGearTest - Full Review 
    • 'Without downplaying this jacket's utility on the trail or in camp, I've appreciated it the most when fishing. I've walk-waded the Yellowstone, Gallatin, and Madison Rivers when the mercury was near freezing and snow and sleet falling. The Cayambe has been great. The sleeve liners keep out the wind and the athletic fit keeps me warm as I chase the wily trout.'
    • 'Water repellency is as good as I've ever encountered with a jacket marketed as a soft shell.'
    • 'This jacket has been especially durable; it truly looks like new after several months' use and abuse on the trail.' 
    • 'Cayambe is really terrific within its temperature range - depending upon midlayers worn, from 18-50 F (-8 to 10 C).'
