RedHead Bear Creek Softshell Jackets for Men
This is a great product for the price. I have seen competitor company's with the same style of jackets go for double the price or more. It's durable as I have had one for 2 years now and wear it a lot. I just bought another for my friend as a present who has been eyeing up mine for awhile now. Also I bought a third to store in my bug out bag.
Very water resistant and easy to clean. I have one little hole on the arm due to a careless smoker but aside from that very strong and durable.
Only recommendation I would have For this is if there was a zippered ventilation point under The arms.
Overall Great buy and well worth the 60 dollars I paid.

Good affordable softshell
I have been looking at this jacket for a couple of years now but last fall for some reason i pulled the trigger on another brand of jacket in the same price range at my local name brand clothing store. It lasted almost one whole winter before the zipper fell apart .
So this fall after a lot of shopping around I went down to my local bass pro and picked up the redhead bear creek jacket and so far am very pleased with the quality of this jacket ,the high quality ykk zippers aren't full size ykk zippers, but are very smooth and seem to be durable, the fleece lining is kinda light but very high quality, soft and supple.
The only downside to this jacket i have found is there seems to be no inner layer technology that some softshell jackets have to keep you warmer and drier but at this price point it is exceptable, and i also would like there to be an adjustment at the bottom of the jacket to snug it up at the bottom around the waist.
Over all i think this is a great jacket for someone looking for a good lite weight jacket under 50 dollars

Comfortable and nice look
This light weight coat/jacket is comfortable and light weight. It looks professional so you can wear it out. It is also water proof I was wearing it in the rain for the first day that I had to wear it in Dallas, TX at the Texas State fair. It kept me dry and did not get hot or cold. It would be great out fishing, hunting or just a night out on the town.

Great softshell jacket!
I bought this jacket in Denver on the way to RMNP. The price was incredible compared to other brands, but I found that the jacket held up on several hikes in rather demanding conditions! Good intermediate jacket, especially when it started to snow at 10,000 ft!
Since then, I've layered it with a vest underneath on colder mornings, and I'm sold!
