Rab Infinity

Ultralight doesn't have to mean ultra-fragile. RAB's snug-fitting, midweight INFINITY is wrapped in a thin but unbelievably tough new fabric called Pertex Quantum. How tough? After several months of abuse, we finally got it to rip—but only by deliberately dragging it very hard across a barbed-wire fence. It's also an inferno (stuffed with 850-fill down), super-compressible (it packs into its own coffee-can-size stuffsack), and highly water-resistant, repeatedly shrugging off wet snow that would have soaked a lot of other down jackets. Bonus: the Lycra-lined hood fits snugly around your face sans pull cords. $280; rab.uk.com
