adidas Agravic Windweave Jacket

Best all-around

Brand: Adidas

Model: Agravic Windweave Jacket

Windshell designers are constantly searching for the optimal balance between breathability and protection, since too much of one often means too little of the other. The Agravic’s best-in-test recipe pairs air-permeable polyester (in the lower torso and upper back) with dense, wind-busting poly everywhere else. Even our sweatiest testers couldn’t swamp it out on 45°F trail runs in the High Sierra. The fabric blocks 25-mph wind, and the PFC-free DWR withstands drizzles (the more breathable panels wet out first). One chest pocket fits a smartphone, and the hood adjusts to fit a bare head or helmet.
