Epic Jacket

When we’re not immersed in Bozeman’s never-ending winter or our few short months of summer, I always find myself lacking a versatile between-the-seasons jacket. I finally found the Mountain Hardwear Epic Jacket, which can be worn comfortably both alone and as a top layer. Its lightweight design (12 oz.) and bombproof waterproofing keep you dry and ready for action in the backcountry. The coat also has some handy features such as a rollaway hood, armpit zippers for when things get heated, and an arm pocket for your stashables. Added benefit: the jacket’s fitted style doesn’t make you feel (or look) like you’re packing an extra 20 pounds. $120; mountainhardwear.com.
