b'JACKETSBEST LIGHTWEIGHT RAIN JACKETRab Phantom Pull-On $200From wet hikes on the Olympic Peninsulato dry, windy mountain runs in the Canadian Rockies, we took the Phantom everywhere. This shell is too packable not to. Better: it protects far beyond its 3.2-ounce weight. We stayed dry in 30-minute downpours and all-day drizzles. Credit the impressively breathable and stretchy 2.5-layer water-proof fabric, taped seams, fitted hood, and extra-long sleeves. Of course, this weight class demands penance: no pockets, only a quarter zip, and no wrist or hem adjustments. But those are worthwhile trade-offs for oneof the lightest rain shells weve tested. 3.2 ozBEST ECO-SHELLPatagonia Torrentshell 3L $149Green-gear skeptics changed their tune after testing this waterproof jacket, which was re- designed for 2020 to prove that sustainability neednt compromise performance or afford-ability. Sewn in a Fair Trade certified factory, the Torrentshell is made from recycled nylon, with a waterproof-breathable mem brane thats 13 percent plant based. The three-layer construction is more durable than its 2.5-layer predecessor. Still, as with Torrentshells of old, its breathable (pit zips help), a high collar and brimmed hood seal out showers, and there are hand pockets for snacks. Its heavier and less packable than the Rab, but it also costs less, and the 50-denier fabric is tougher. 13.9 oz (mens) / 12.5 oz (womens, pictured) BEST SUMMER INSULATIONElevenate Motion Down $250Sometimes you want a jacket that feels cuddly. Enter the Motion, which is stuffed with enough 750-fill down, plus synthetic loft at the shoulders, to keep our tester cozy on 40-degree mornings in Montanas Beaver-head Mountains. Upping the snug factor is un-usually soft nylon and a patch of microfleece to soften the zipper at the neck. Wavelike baffles and striped elastic on the hem and cuffs make it more stylish than your standard puffy. But it still has backcountry cred, with a PFC-free DWR coating that shields against drizzles and errant coffee splashes. 6.2 oz (mens) / 5.8 oz (womens, pictured)34OUTSIDEBUYERSGUIDE2020 | HIKE AND CAMPSBG20_HIKE_GOYJackets_rlsd_449487.indd 34 3/30/20 8:05 PM'
