Mountain Hardwear Phantom Down Hoody


It’s hard to find an all-weather down jacket much lighter than this featherweight number, which matches 800-fill water-resistant down with a lightweight ripstop face fabric for a pack-and-go piece that weight just under 10 ounces for the men’s model.

A scaled-down version of our top family tent pick from the spring gear guide, this tent features a hubbed pole setup for a quick and simple pitch and a spacious vestibule to store packs and wet gear. Buy Klymit Maxfield 2 Tent Now for $220 (45% off)
