BEST FOR: Moving quickly in cool weather. THE TEST: Don’t let the tracksuit styling and snug fit fool you. The Terrex is built for fast-moving athletes, not retro-loving hipsters. Using body maps based on thermal imaging and moisture sensors, Adidas sought to create a jacket that offers the widest range of comfort possible. The resulting jigsaw puzzle—protective Gore Active Shell Windstopper panels in the front, shoulders, and lower back; stretchier, more breathable soft-shell material in the upper back, front of the arms, and sides—is impressive. “I was just as comfortable at 55 and wet as I was at 32 and windy,” said one trail-runner. THE VERDICT: Burly enough for foul-weather runs, with styling that won’t embarrass you around town afterward. 11.8 oz
