BEST FOR: Not stopping. THE TEST: The most distinctive feature of the athletically cut Breath is its front double pockets, which have standard zippered compartments as well as external, stretchy mesh pouches. The combo works great. Gloves, hats, lip balm, sunglasses, map, snacks … testers reported throwing just about everything imaginable in them. “I liked that I didn’t have to take my pack off or even unzip to stash stuff,” noted one. Large swaths of mesh on the back of the jacket help prevent overheating when we charged uphill, while the textured face fabric is as stretchy as it is tough, with not so much as a scuff after a combative chimney climb. THE VERDICT: You might think the front mesh pockets are bizarre, but there’s no denying their usefulness. 16 oz
