The K5 - Testa Softshell Jacket is the warmer alternative to the K5 - Velox Light Jacket, designed for active use in cold weather. An inner fleece laminate adds additional warmth, making it the go-to in cooler climates.
Inner Fleece Laminate
An inner fleece laminate wicks moisture away from the body and traps heat.

I purchased a black, medium regular jacket and wore it up in Banff Canada for the past 10 days in cold (0-25°F) weather. I hiked, snowshoed, and wore it around town and it did phenomenally. The material is very breathable, and is further supplemented by great ventilation from the pockets which were used to their fullest during our hiking and showshoeing days. I do wish it had a hood and was a little longer to accommodate leaving your base/level 3 layers untucked, but those are just personal preferences for walking around town and have no effect on my opinion of the jacket. It performs as advertised. Note: the cuff straps will catch and stick on lots of materials (i.e. wool, cotton, etc.) so be careful or you might damage your other layers.
This is a very versatile and comfortable jacket. Spend a week in New York a few weeks back and coupled with the k2 hoody (the waffled thermal) my temp was perfect. The vents work well for walking around and it cuts the wind enough to keep you toasty when idle. The jacket fits “tight” the way it should (similar to Sitka jetstream) while offering great mobility and comfort. The biggest gripe is the rubber wrist cuff straps chafe and almost pill on the edges, which makes it look kinda janky. I don’t tighten the cuffs and usually stick my hands in the jacket pockets for warmth, so maybe that has something to do with it. I haven’t call customer service yet because I want to see if it will stop wearing so I’m not sure if it’s a common issue or if I rolled craps. At the end of the day I am happy with the jacket and just slightly irritated about the straps. You won’t regret it if you buy it.
Awesome jacket. Zippers are a little sticky on the pockets but not a huge deal. Fit is good, quality is great like everything from beyond.
Jacket is perfect. I ordered a XL Long. I'm 6-3, 240. Sleeve length is long, but perfect for "active" wear - sleeve length can by controlled using the adjustable cuffs. I'd call this jacket a trim, "athletic fit". Very well made, as are all garments from Beyond. This clothing is perfect for all of your active outdoor activities. Highly recommended.
Excellent piece, but cuffs are a bit too wide.
