What you get This slightly stretchy Patagonia midlayer has the best warmth-to-wicking ratio of anything in its class. The gridded fabric compresses to the size of a grapefruit and go-to features like a low-profile hood that fits underneath a helmet and thumb loops seal the deal.

Trail cred “It’s quite breathable and the added Polygiene treatment keeps it from stinking, which is great because I don’t think I’ve ever washed it,” says Colorado tester Heather Rochfort. “I wore it hiking the Camino in Spain and it hit that perfect balance of warmth, comfort, breathability, and versatility.”
