I’ve done a ton of searching and have struggled to find much on the Stone Glacier De Haviland jacket. I’m looking at this vs a Sitka Jetstream. I know the Jetstream is heavier and has wind stopper which makes me nervous, as I tend to run rather hot once moving. I’ve got two puffys(SG and Mountain Hardware) and two Sitka shells so I’m not really worried about insane warmth. I just want something that can be used as an active outer when I’m moving and it’s windy and cold but not wet. I have a old Sitka 90% jacket in mothwing that I love dearly it goes everywhere with me, I just wish it had a hood and a little more layer room hence the reason I’m eyeballing a soft shell. So I guess after my rant the real question is which one of these two is most similar in attributes in your experience to a 90% jacket? I’m also open to opinions on the kuiu axis jacket but I do have bitter feelings towards kuiu so I’m leaning towards the other two preferably. I look forward to everyone’s opinions. Thanks!
