Light enough for the backcountry, yet durable enough for the resort, the Mt. Baker Storm Jacket from Outdoor Research keeps me plenty warm and dry. Constructed with 2L Gore-Tex fabric, the breathable, waterproof, and windproof exterior is a match for anything I throw at it. A helmet-compatible hood and pit-zips keep me comfy in all conditions. The “relaxed fit” is great for range of motion and layering underneath, but you may need to size down. Available online; $449.
