Reviews

Men's SOMA Plasmic™ Jacket is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not breathe as hoped for Bought this on the fly when the weather forecast and reality were at odds. Hot and sticky 85º day in lower Manhattan working outdoor production. Jacket literally clung to my exposed skin and formed a suction mat with my humidity and perspiration soaked t shirt. Might be fine for light gardening or walking the dog on a leash, but not for those seeking log term ventilation attributes. Fine in a downpour - no worries there - but really a bad choice for my environmental circumstances. I'll have to spend three times the money to get close to my ideal. When will I learn?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Shell So far, I've had this shell for a few weeks and here's my 2 cents: First Impressions: didn't like it; the material was new, stiff and noisy, it felt a lot different than the columbia gore-tex jacket I'd been wearing, I read a couple bad reviews so I was gonna send it back. Then I realized there's bad reviews for every jacket, I wore it again and got used to the material, (which isn't uncomfortable, just different), a week later the noisy went away, the DWR wore off pretty quick, but to reactivate it I need to wash the shell. I go through thick bushes that ruins gore-tex and this shell holds up like a boss, I got this shell in black, so naturally you can see all of the scuffs and spots. I LOVE the 4 pockets, that's the main problem with most shells/jackets; they don't have enough pockets. I carry my sunglasses in one of the chest pockets, which is relatively safe compared to the hip pockets, which i keep a hankerchief and protein bars, i put my keys and micro fiber cleaning towel (for my sunglasses) in the other chest pocket. This shell is definitely a shell: you need some kind of insulation layer under it. I use a Kelvinator down jacket which does the job well. As for the breathability: when i wear my polyester/cotton shirt it takes much longer for me to sweat as opposed to my cotton shirts, I don't own any polyester shirts so I can't say much. I can say if it's above 70 on a sunny day then I overheat like mad (even wearing the polyester/cotton shirt), but I assume that's to be expected: you don't really wear jackets in that kind of weather unless it's windy. For all who are as stupid as I am: the hood has a hidden cord lock inside the edge of the hood. The hood is boss: it's like wearing a balaclava, so wind is no problem, but I don't always like wearing a hood because you have to move your whole body to turn your head, but it does what it's supposed to: definitely wind proof. I also love the hem adjustments, I have no idea why some companies neglect to put these on their jackets. The fit: I'd say true to size: im 5'7 120lbs and its a slightly baggy fitting (enough to fit a Kelvinator jacket into it, it's a snug fit which is perfect) Love the wrist adjustments. The zipper seems heavy duty. I havent wore this shell with a helmet, but even for wearing it normally, the adjustment meant for helmets is nifty. Overall, good jacket so far, i'll update this in a bit when it rains.
