THE SELL: A hard shell that stretches your comfort and performance, not your wallet. THE TEST: DNA has dialed in this coat over the years with features such as the clear-faced, flip-down pass wallet and forearm vents that, along with the massive, extra-long pit zips, cool you down in a hurry. But the Moe is more than the sum of its bells and whistles. The heavy-duty fabric is as stretchy and quiet as any soft shell's, and the hip-length cut, high, stiff collar, and double-wide front zipper flap make it as cozy as a storm shelter. Proof? The Moe was the go-to shell on a rainy Oregon ski day when other riders were donning trash-bag ponchos. "Just bomber," said one tester. THE VERDICT: It's one of the best-built jackets here, and it's nice to get more than you pay for. 2 lbs
