Columbia new Million Air ultra-wicking Softshell

Spring collection update at Columbia introduced the Million Air Softshell jacket, featuring the companies high-end wicking technology: Omni-Wick EVAP.

If you live in a region where Spring weather brings small showers and drizzle then chances are a traditional hardshell jackets will be overkill to go to the hills. That’s why gear manufacturers invented a few years ago the concept of Softshell. This one from Columbia gets all the classic features, namely high water resistance with Omni-Shield and wind blocker with Omni-Wind Block. But what makes it even better is the addition of Omni-Wick EVAP, Columbia’s own fabric that is very breathable and speeds up evaporation by spreading moisture on its surface.

The Million Air jacket comes with two hand-warmer pockets, an arm-pocket, adjustable cuffs and drawcord adjustable hem. It is available now from their website in Men and Women. The recommended retail price is a bit steep at $150 but this could be a great jacket for Spring’s fast paced activities.
