On those drippy drips, slush-coated rock, or wet-snow outings, staying dry is key to staying warm and functional. But the catch-22: to block moisture from without is to trap moisture within . . . or is it? The new MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR CARNIC JACKET ($350, mountainhardwear.com), a super-light (18oz), three-layer waterproof shell intended for fast-and-light blitzkriegs, features a Conduit™ laminate membrane that draws moisture up through its surface, sans micropores — it’s a water shield that breathes. The Carnic moves well on climbs, too, thanks to the waterproof zWeld seams. Other performance features: helmet-compatible adjustable hood, articulated arms, pit zips, and a host of pockets for keys/ID, water bottle, and even an MP3 player. Colors are Grasshopper, Grill, and Red; sizes S through XXL.
