What is a good softshell hoodie

Im looking for a good looking/ not to baggy hoodie softshell, Something like the DC Spectrum.

I'd buy the spectrum but i can't find a single store in Vancouver that carries one to try on.

What else is out there that is similar to the spectrum?

686 did a colab with Fallen this year that's pretty rad, Holden has a fleece+hoodie inspired one as well.

Sessions makes my all time favorite softshells. The kreuger series from last year has the most amazing, lightweight fabric and a fantastic DWR coating. Super minimalist styling too, which I like.

AG transpose. Both the transpose and spectrum are rather long. Good for on snow, but not something I'd want for regular wear.

I appreciate the suggestions guys. They arn't really my taste accept that 686 + Fallen jacket isnt half bad.

Ill just bite the bullet and order a medium DC Spectrum and hope it fits for now, i can't find a large one.

Any idea if DC and 686 has similar sizing? i have a large 686 jacket and its rather bulky.

This. I really like the Sessions softshell hoodies. I have two of them.

I do want that NS hoodie that Milo posted though. Not feeling paying $85 for it though. I think I paid $50ish each for both of my Sessions hoodies off of Steep and Cheap or a similar site.

Britt got me the NS one in black ( =

She's gotten me two NS hoodies in the past two seasons. This one is made of some new skool synthetic material.... Unlike any hoodie I've ever owned, and I'm a hoodie guy. It's thin yet heavy and warm
