VIKING-TESTEDThis is virtually the national label of Iceland—and for good reason. When it’s raining daggers in Reykjavík, this two-layer piece keeps you bone-dry, thanks to an eVENT waterproof-breathable membrane that bars rain and wicks away perspiration. Soft fleece lines the collar and pockets, and a zip-off hood moves with you like it’s welded on. All that, and the tailored cut will carry you from peak to pub.

Bonus: The cuff closures were designed by someone who’s had to wrestle tabs closed with frozen fingers.

Bummer: The collar could cinch down more.
