Using high tech fabrication to full advantage the North Face FuseForm Dot Matrix is the most versatile jacket we tested in this category, ideal for everything from backcountry trips to walking the dog.
Designed for fast, technical alpine climbing missions, the Alpine Project Hard Shell is made with Gore Tex's new Active Shell, a lighter, thinner and more breathable membrane that's still guaranteed waterproof.
By combining Gore Tex’s Paclite and Pro Shell fabrics in the Alpha jacket, Arc'Teryx achieves both lightweight, high packability in low wear areas, and durability and high breathability where it's needed. The design is intended for hiking and climbing.
A top of the line, fully featured outdoor shell, introduced as part of adidas's new outdoor line. It complements the user’s movements, never restricts, and is burly, totally waterproof and highly breathable.
