COOL CHAMELEONOne of those rare pieces that delivers performance on the trail but still looks sharp on the street, this ingeniously paneled, 19-ounce hoodless number employs two breeds of Gore WindStopper—tough Trango on the yoke and arms, lighter Eiger on the rest—and its versatility is astounding: You’ll stay warm and perspiration-free in nasty cold, whether you’re mountain-biking or ducking out for a movie.
Bonus: Who needs elastic or hook-and-loop closures when you’ve got these tapered, fleece-lined cuffs?
Bummer: That internal chest pocket should move out front.
