Men’s PHG Ascender™ Camo Softshell Jacket is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Jacket I purchased 2 of these jackets, 1 for my husband and 1 for myself. We both love this jacket. We were it everywhere, hunting, to work, and around the house. The camo is beautiful, its not like a lot of camo u buy and when u get it its totally different, the camo looks just like the website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Softshell, Can't get ant better than this one This is by far the best soft-shell on the market, the collar is slightly longer at the back and towards the back of the neck, well made, nice print pattern that can be used with Realtree gear from different manufactures, once you zip up all the way you can still move your chin comfortably and the great chest pocket for my iPhone. This jacket is my favorite and I highly recommend this one over all other manufactures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great softshell jacket It's quiet, warm, blocks the wind, and has a tough enough shell to handle branches and things that can snag you. Great range of motion. I haven't had a chance to hunt in it but I've cut trees in 40 degree weather and it worked great. Size medium, 6'1", 165 lbs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hunting Jacket This was a gift for my uncle who is an avid hunter during the winter seasons...he loves it! Replaced a jacket he has had for 20+ years! He loved the material and warmth, still being light weight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Softshell Jacket !!! Firstly I have an older version of this jacket in boring black (bought a few years back). The main upgrades in this model are: Slimmer through the Arms (Looks Better). Full Length Wind flap for main zipper (Keeps wind out way better). Velcro Cuff Sleeves (Adjustable and Very Useful) Overall this jacket is a bit thicker and warmer than the older model. Lastly and Most Importantly, the Camo Print is just Awesome and the Colours and Textures are Rich!! The one thing it does not have are the 2 inner sleeve pockets on either side that the old model did have. Also, note that this jacket is Water Resistant and NOT Waterproof. The Fleece lining will get soaked if water gets inside. It is a Soft-shell and is not meant to be waterproof. It is Windproof! Please note that my un-exaggerated weight is about 130 at 5"6, so I find it a tad bit roomy and enough space to put on a slim 700 down fill sleeveless vest inside of this jacket. But then again different people occupy a different amount of space at the same height and or weight based on your build. So I recommend choosing your size wisely. Hope this helps!
