Angling wear review: Webtex Breatha-tex SoftShell Jacket


Being warm, dry and comfortable is of upmost importance when angling, just like when taking part in any outdoor sport or activity. We were delighted therefore to be asked to review a jacket from Night Gear ... the Webtex Breatha-tex SoftShell Jacket.

Webtex Breatha-tex SoftShell Jacket

Product Description

Breatha-tex material is a durable hi-tech fabric that is designed to be completely waterproof and windproof yet remain capable of breathing. The membrane of the fabric evaporates any sweat to the outside moderating your body temparature to keep you dry and comfortable.

Made using waterproof tactical softshell material, the Webtex Breatha-tex SoftShell Jacket boasts the following features:

  • Soft shell outer lining and a warm micro fleece inner lining
  • Storm proof zips with removable Web-tex pullers
  • Two zipped side pockets and one zipped chest pocket
  • Adjustable cuffs and draw string waist
  • Velcro patches on each arm complete with 1 subdued Union Jack patch


The manufacturers of the Webtex Breatha-tex SoftShell Jacket claim it is completely waterproof and windproof. With the stormy weather we have had this winter in the UK, it wasn't hard to find suitable weather to really put it through its paces.

The first thing to mention is that the jacket is really lightweight and comfortable to wear. It's easy to move around in and not at all bulky and awkward like other outdoor jackets. Despite this, it is also really durable and quite clearly well made. It kept me warm and dry on two recent fishing trips and when I've worn it as more of a casual jacket. As we've not had any really cold weather lately, I cannot vouch for how well it will perform in the coldest of conditions but when I have worn it, its kept me really warm and dry.

Finally, the jacket looks good enough to wear not just when angling, but for everyday casual wear. Very stylish. Its really quite affordable too when compared with other similar jackets. The Web-Tex Tactical Soft Shell Jacket features all the same high-tec specifications but with an affordable price tag.

I can't really fault this jacket at all. It's a great all round jacket that is waterproof, windproof and breathable, lightweight but very warm. I love it and won't be taking it off anytime soon.
