The Claim: The only four-season shell you need.

The Reality: The 70-denier fabric is basically tearproof, and the hem-to-pit side zips and four mesh-backed pockets made shedding body heat a matter of unzipping. When I turned 1,500 psi of water on the Maximus, a small leak appeared on the pocket zips. Forgivable.

The Verdict: It’s ready for any condition. 1.2 lbs.
