It’s easy to work up a sweat trudging around the mountains in fresh snow, and that’s why the breathability of Patagonia’s Descensionist is such a bonus. Take this waterproof, lightweight shell on high-output tours in inclement weather (which describes spring in Montana to a T) and enjoy the mobility of the coat’s stretchy fabric.

Drawbacks: slim fit, no pit-zips, and your pack’s hip-belt will run right through the extra-long pockets.

$450; patagonia.com.
