Best for wet resorts

For those days when the storms come in so warm that there are puddles on the chairlift, Columbia’s Aerial Arson hard shell has your back, literally: it’s cut long enough to provide a critical panel of protection between you and that soggy seat. Of course, how well it breathes is just as important. While it’s too bulky for sidecountry excursions, the Arson ­effectively shunts heat thanks to chest vents, pit zips, and Columbia’s Omni-Dry ­fabric. For colder weather, a space-blanket-like layer of heat-reflecting metallic dots in the liner adds warmth.
