Brand: Howler Brothers
Model: Gaucho Snapshirt
If you like clothes that perform well without screaming “trail time,” get this shirt. Out of all the apparel we tested, it looked the most at home in the city while still being able to handle days in the mountains. “The relaxed fit and lightweight nylon breathed extremely well while grinding uphill,” says our tester. Pleated chest pockets are big enough to hold snacks, and a microfiber patch at the hem cleans shades. Ding: The Gaucho begins to smell after a few days of hard use.
