    •    Very light and packable.
    •    Good breathability.
    •    Super warm hood.
    •    Lots of pockets.
    •    Stretches to fit over layers.

    •    Price is far higher than we’d expect.
    •    Fits a little small.

Combining the best of every jacket on this page, the Hybridge Lite Hoody was best in class in almost every category, except one of the most important ones—price. At more than $600, it's twice as expensive as any other jacket here.
