Some­day, we’ll all wear a sin­gle layer that in­su­lates in sub­freez­ing temps, repels driv­ing rain and wind, cools us in the heat, wears like iron, and never stinks. But that day is not to­day. Un­til then, we rec­om­mend the win­ners of our 2015 ap­parel test. We se­lected th­ese stand­outs from 100-plus can­di­dates that saw eight months of abuse from Wash­ing­ton’s Cas­cades to New Hamp­shire’s White Moun­tains. For now, con­sider this your new suit of ar­mor—dessert not in­cluded.
