Women's Softshell Jackets

Our softshell jackets for women help you prepare for the unexpected on the trails. With innovative windproofing materials, water-repellent technologies, and adjustable features, softshells keep you moving comfortably

class="Body">A softshell ladies' jacket helps you strike that balance when it's not rainy enough to wear a waterproof and not quite chilly enough for an insulated jacket. Whether you're cycling on a frosty morning or hiking through forest trails, we have a softshell women's jacket to suit every type of activity.

We offer durable designs by brands including Arc'teryx, Mountain Equipment, Rapha and The North Face. With handy features including drawstring hoods, zipped chest pockets, high collars and adjustable Velcro cuffs, our softshell jackets for women deliver uncompromised performance.

Wearing a technical women's hooded softshell jacket means that you can layer more effectively and stay prepared through any change in the weather. At Tiso, we're a team of outdoor enthusiasts. We've been helping our customers find the best gear since we first started trading from a tiny shop in Edinburgh over 60 years ago.

Our expert team know just how to recommend the right fit and features for each ladies' softshell jacket. Shop online now or pop in to a Tiso store near you to browse the collection in person. If you'd like to ask us any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Will a women's softshell jacket keep me warm?

By design, our women's softshell jackets are incredibly versatile. They're breathable, lightweight, and many feature an insulated lining to provide warmth when the temperature drops.

Technical softshell jackets are designed to make up part of a layering system. On winter hikes and expeditions, this might include a moisture-wicking base layer underneath a softshell and insulated jacket. It's worth knowing that no two ladies' softshell jackets are the same. Some have a fleece lining, while others might not be insulated at all. If you need extreme weather protection, it's worth visiting a Tiso store to find the most suitable women's softshell jacket.

At our Outdoor Experience, we offer expert fitting services and specialist advice to ensure that you only leave with the most suitable gear. Our team can point out the best-insulated models and recommend an ideal layering system too.

Are women's softshell jackets waterproof?

Not all softshell ladies' jackets are designed to withstand rain. Many come with a water-repellent membrane that should keep you dry through a light shower. If you're expecting to be walking through persistent heavy rain, it's always worth packing a waterproof jacket to protect you from the elements.

If you need a waterproof women's softshell jacket, make sure you look out for the Gore-Tex® logo in the product description or written on the label. This means that the jacket features a fully waterproof, windproof and breathable outer membrane, giving you even more flexibility on the trails.

Is a women's softshell jacket good for winter sports?

Our softshell jackets for women make a great choice for when you're hitting the slopes. Whether you're a total beginner or teaching others to ski, wearing a ladies' softshell guarantees all-day comfort.

Thanks to their malleable, extra-comfortable interiors, softshell jackets give you enhanced mobility and comfort during any level of activity. They should also offer wind resistance and a water-repellent membrane, making it easy to shake off a light dusting of snow. Softshells are breathable too, keeping you comfortable during high-intensity sessions.

It's worth remembering that most women's softshell jackets won't keep you dry in driving rain. For complete weather protection, pair your softshell with a waterproof shell – and don't forget to keep your gloves tucked underneath the cuffs.

Which features do women's softshell jackets have?

Softshell jackets are slightly different to fleeces and outer shells, so it's important to know which features set them apart. These include:

  • Drawstring adjustment, especially in a women's softshell hooded jacket
  • Reinforced fabrics in the elbow and shoulder areas
  • Internal and external pockets – positioned higher in climbing softshells
  • Stretchy fabrics with multi-directional elasticity
  • Reflective trims, especially on zips and logos
  • Ribbed cuffs, which may be adjustable with Velcro
