The North Face North Dome Stretch Wind Jacket (Men's)

$129 $85 from Backcountry 34% off

This jacket was our favorite alpine shell in our 2019 Summer Buyer's Guide. The hand pockets didn't interfere with a harness, and the fabric is stretchy, durable, and weather resistant. “It’s not breathable enough for running, but the details that make it ideal for climbing work just as well for getting to the crag on a bike or on foot,” our testers wrote.
