question Next Generation Hard Shells

Recommended Posts

With some of the next generation hard shells (stretchy, breathable) coming out (NF Futurelight seems to be the most advertised) I'm curious if folks have tried them or seen good unbiased reviews/comparisons. I've typically worn softshells in true winter conditions as much as possible and pulled out the goretex for wet ice or technical climbing with spindrift/precip only when I really need to. Curious if this new new stuff lives up to the hype and could be a quiver-of-one outer layer...

I have a jacket with the same Schoeller stretchy material as the Mammut pants and I love it. It's my main winter 'shell' and it's kept me dry in everything but actual rain, very very comfortable too. I haven't taken it to 'super cold temps' but have used it for years and haven't really felt like it's particularly cold/drafty.
