1. Columbia OutDry EX Diamond Shell
This high-tech rain jacket is sort of like your old one, only turned inside out. Most shells use a layer of fabric on the outside to protect the delicate waterproof membrane beneath it. But that fabric tends to take on water, and while it won’t ever hit your skin, it does leave you feeling cold and clammy. Columbia has put an abrasion-resistant, waterproof membrane on the outside and a comfortable wicking fabric next to skin to create a rugged, hike-ready jacket that won’t wet out or feel damp in an alpine cloudburst.
