At 465g, we trusted this Windstopper style to repel open-water gusts and conquer windy ridgelines in Chile. The adidas Outdoors’ Terrex collection goes head-to-toe with durable, practical pieces; we brought along Fast Jacket due to its slim fit, adjustable hood and elastic cuffs. Verdict: This is the new expedition hoody with a soft hand to make wearing easy – and weather-fighting power to step outside in the elements. Flexibility in shoulder and arm areas proved essential when carrying packs through variable weather.
Test Quote: “Once again, the brand of three stripes comes through. Somehow, they make durable synthetic pieces act like cotton and wool at pretty surprising prices. Sizing is true with enough space underneath for my baselayer and flannel shirt.”
