Ground Hard Place - Soft Shells: Reviews
Eric Hansen

The low-key ranch-jacket exterior of the Hard Place conceals some trick technology. A finish called NanoSphere magically repels stains and dirt from the abrasion-resistant Schoeller WB-400 fabric. A waffled liner channels sweat away from the back. And under the arms, a lightweight stretch fleece allows venting without unwieldy pit zips. 1.3 lbs; www.groundwear.com

Bonus: Perfect for a bike commute that sometimes turns into a peloton sprint.

Bummer: The dirtbags who will love it most will have trouble finding $360 between the couch cushions.
