Streamlined Protection

Martinis. Lobster rolls. Jackets. At the end of the day, each is only as good as its main ingredient. And that's why the Brisk was so universally lauded this year—it's cut from Gore's Windstopper fabric, a perennial tester favorite that strikes a good balance between protecting you from the elements (wind, rain) and letting moisture out. As with nearly every jacket we've tested from this Swiss company, the cut is trim and athletic and the attention to detail is outstanding. To wit, the low-profile thumb loops: They're there for you when you need a bit of extra warmth—like when you're still three miles from the trailhead and realize you're a touch underdressed—and practically invisible when you don't. 12.5 oz;
Wind/Water Resistance: 4.4
Breathability: 4
