Like that annoying friend who wears different outfits for every outdoor activity, I’m an incorrigible rainshell geek. One for the river, one for hiking, one for fishing, one for trail-running… you get the idea. But I may have found salvation in the Focus LT Hoody, a cool new garment from Westcomb that meets all my outdoor requirements in a single shell. This super light, highly packable rainstopper utilizes eVent DVL, a next-generation fabric that is (finally!) both truly waterproof and truly breathable—which means I stay dry even during vigorous exercise. Subtle features like soft fleece on the collar and interior hood-tightening tabs make this jacket’s comfort match its performance. The only drawback is the lone chest pocket—no standard left/right pockets to stuff cold hands into—but I guess the Focus’s sub-nine-ounce weight had to come from somewhere. $280; westcomb.com.
