BEST JACKET

Ul­ti­mate Di­rec­tion Ul­tra Jacket v2

In terms of waterproofing and breatha­bil­ity, the Ul­tra Jacket ex­ceeds the fab­ric spec­i­fi­ca­tions re­quired by the Ul­tra-Trail du Mont­Blanc (a 163km, sin­gle-stage, trail-run­ning race through the Alps). Sur­pris­ingly, that wasn’t what im­pressed me most about it: rather, it was the Tun­nel Ef­fect hood, which has a vent at the back so you don’t get too hot, and a stiff brim. I’d rec­om­mend it to moun­tain ad­ven­tur­ers who are plan­ning on run­ning long dis­tances in un­pre­dictable con­di­tions.
