Too often, a “woman’s” jacket is simply an extra-small man’s jacket dyed pink. Not so with the MARMOT REYNA JACKET ($230, marmot.com). This hooded softshell is tailored perfectly to fit women’s shorter torsos and narrower waists. It also won me over with its Angel-Wing Movement design, which lets you move your arms freely without ride-up or shoulder scrunch (read: no more ice flakes down the pants during overhead toolin’). Windproof and water resistant, the Reyna’s Polartec Windbloc stretch fabric is also breathable, and PitZips offer extra ventilation when the going gets hot.
