Plenty of cargo space, an adjustable hood and great air flow, you may never have to take this coat off

Shell

With a 2.5-layer waterproof/breathable membrane, a wide storm flap, and an adjustable hood, this shell breathed moderately well even when testers humped packs through summer downpours. But roll the hood under the collar and the Track moonlights as an around-town jacket that looks like a car coat–with enough cargo space to leave your daypack at the hotel. A three-tiered interior organizer pocket safely stashes a passport and other essentials, but adds extra weight. $130; S-XXL; 1 lb. 2 oz. (S); lafumausa.com. Reader service #108
