BEST FOR: Moving fast in wet climes.
THE TEST: One of our Vancouver-based testers spent three months biking around the city in
the Stretch Capacitor. He was impressed—a long fit in the torso and arms and stretchy fabric in the back and sides kept him totally dry, even when hunched over the handlebars with water coming from all directions. It performed equally well on hiking trails, where Mountain Hardwear’s new next-to-skin layer, Dry.Q Evap, let the sweat out, spreading body vapor around for faster dispersion.
THE VERDICT: Our biking tester said it best—“Functional fit, totally waterproof, good breathability.” 11 oz
