Default Salomon soft-shell jackets

Hey everyone, Happy New Year to all!

I am looking to get a new jacket as mine has been completely worn out for the past 6 years. I was using a hard shell jacket with core that zips into it, essentially a 2 in 1. Can't say that it was overly bulky or heavy but the jacket had some weight to it, no complaints though as I have never been cold in it.

I now came across a Salomon soft shell jacket. It's a 3 in 1 and has a removable liner that can be worn on it's own.

This jacket is 20k waterproof and 15k breathibility. It is extremely light and thin in comparison to my old jacket so I am wondering if it will keep me warm. I ride mostly on the east coast so we get all sorts of weather (except amazing powder days sigh) and it can get pretty cold at times.

I am wondering if anyone used this jacket or something similar and wheather it does the job well, it would be awesome to get something this light and thin if it keeps you warm and dry

I just started wearing the shells this year and atleast in my opinion it doesn't cut the wind as great as I expecting. They're great with water proofing generally but might wana just be ready to cut it with an underarmor coldgear and a fleece or somethin for good measure
