Ignore the Forecast
All-purpose windbreakers like the nonstretchy Shadowland have been around for a while—and with good reason. More lined than insulated, the Shadowland is essentially what you’d get if you fused your softest, fastest-wicking base layer with your favorite wind shell. Translation: It’s a remarkably versatile and highly wind- and water-resistant four-season jacket. Testers ran in it in cold winter drizzles, layered up with it in the summer, and wore it for weeks on end in the spring and fall. Nice touch: The chest and front hand pockets are all lined with the same comfy stuff as the jacket’s interior. 13.5 oz; mountainhardwear.com
