Traveling light is always a good ideait’s even better if you’re hiking. Ultralight fast hiking is gaining popularityit’s a mix between trail running for speed and the more leisurely ramble of day hikers. The GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY hooded jacket is perfect for the ultralight fast hikers out there—it’s durable, withstanding rips from snags on trees or rocks, a common issue that has ruined many hikers’ jackets.

The jacket also has been designed with a backpack in mind, so seams have been eliminated where a pack might rub. Pockets are thoughtfully placed as well, so you can get your hands in while a pack is on, and a hidden drawcord lets you cinch the jacket to prevent bunching up around the waist. And of course it’s totally waterproof, key for the Northwest outdoor enthusiast. It will be a favorite for trail runners, hikers and cyclists. That said, we won’t tell if you just pack this one in your laptop bag for when the skies open up while you’re waiting for the bus. 

Retail: $379.99. Available at REI, multiple locations including South Lake Union, 222 Yale Ave N; 206.223.1944; rei.com, and Gregg’s Greenlake Cycles, 7007 Woodlawn Ave NE, 206.523.1822, greggscycles.com
