Women’s and men’s versions Yes
This may have been the costliest jacket in our test, but it’s also the only one made of Gore-Tex, a high-performance waterproof fabric. You can’t argue with the jacket’s waterproofness and windproofness, which were the best in this test; it’s comfortable, too, thanks to the pliant, breathable fabric. You can even zip in a fleece if the weather takes a turn for the worse. It’s not the best value here, though, unless you’re a devoted hiker; if so, you’ll love it.
Verdict Four stars
