Too often, a “woman’s” jacket is simply an extra-small man’s jacket dyed pink. Not so with the MARMOT REYNA JACKET ($230, 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.
