Marker Power Shield Jacket
Power Shield, the windproof but breathable wunderfabric from Polartec, is the standout feature of Marker’s unimaginatively named jacket. Although it only weighs 25 ounces, the Power Shield deflected 30 mph winds and snow squalls on Snoqualmie Pass with ease-though melted snow did eventually seep into the shoulders. During fair weather, this snug-fitting top shines thanks to discreet upper-chest vents that let you regulate body temperature with a few quick zipper yanks.
