Down insulation and aerobic workouts rarely mix. But this past winter, sweat freezing to my face while I skied and ran trails in the snow, the HyBridge Lite kept my core regulated. At ten ounces, this airy and slim down-stuffed crossbreed takes the bloat out of the puffer. Breathability keeps it cool during high output in cold weather: excess body heat and moisture escape via uninsulated panels of fleece (Polartec Power Stretch) that run under the arms and down the sides. Thumb loops and a large inside pocket sealed the deal. And the HyBridge Lite is as flattering as it is effective—a shiny coat that kept me looking trim when everyone else resembled the Michelin Man. 10 oz

Breathability: 4.5
