Pretty good
It's very good except for the arm / sleeve capability
I have decent man sized forearms and it's a bit tight if I wear anything under it

Going to buy my 2nd one!
having had one of these jackets for over 5 years and used eveyday riding my scooter to work and back...along with many camping trips.....the only thing that has gone is the zip! I'm off to buy my 2nd one.

Perfect in a Wellington winter.
Went in to get a mid-weight fleece jacket and walked out with this. It's been a more versatile choice being wind and shower proof and bonus of perfect for semi casual dress. It was good for tramping until the frost disappeared then too warm. The cut and design are perfect for me. Stretch sleeves, oversized storm flap, zip doesn't jam, good pockets. Inside pocket stores a cap well. The only thing I'd add is a reflective strip on the back.

I bought this soft shell jacket on a recent visit to New Zealand. I'm mainly using it in South Africa during our Cape winters which can be rather wet and windy most days. This jacket is perfect to wear during this season, it has the required warmth without the bulkiness of storm jackets. Was definitely worth the purchase. Wish I had purchased it as a gift for my dad as well.

Light, Breathable, Warm and Wind Resistant
I have been wearing this jacket for tidy casual use. It even works over suit pants for a smart casual look. I recently took this jacket on a business trip to China. The weather in Beijing was -3 degrees with wind and heavy snow. I wore a Macpac Merino, and this jacket as a mid layer with my Macpac Traverse Jacket as an outer shell. It worked great. Breathable, warm and light.

Most times it can be worn on its own without an outer layer but good to know it can handle extremes too. I’ve owned several soft shells of other brands but this is the best I’ve used. Good work Macpac.

Warm, and surprisingly weatherproof...
We purchased a few of these for search and rescue and had our logo's embroidered on them. We needed a lighter jacket to wear as our Gore-tex ones get too hot in warmer seasons.

The Sabre is very warm, and I was pleasantly surprised that it kept rain out. Even heavy rain was repelled for a while, and the fabric dry's very quickly.

It looks smart enough to wear anywhere, and I find myself wearing it out more and more. Overall a very versatile mid-weight jacket that keeps you warm, and withstands moderate rain.

We’re doing the Tongariro circuit inNovember. Would this jacket be a good option?
Matthew B on Jun 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew,Thank you for your enquiry.You would probably be better off taking a Rain Jacket such as the Traverse Jacket or Copland Jacket as the Sabre Softshell Jacket will not be as suitable for this, especially if it starts to rain heavily. This is more suited to wind and light rain. Thanks - the Macpac Team
Would you recommend this jacket for Nordic skiing?
Jannik on May 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jannik,

No, we would not recommend this for Nordic Skiing. A proper waterproof ski jacket required for this type of activity.

Kind Regards,
The Macpac Team!
