Helly Hansen Odin Mountain Jacket
This jacket is appropriately named, considering that the Germanic god Odin has been thought of as a wanderer. That description works well here, since this jacket can wander from season to season and serve equally well. Features like welded zippers to make the jacket waterproof, a double slider zipper to accommodate harness wearing, a helmet-compatible hood, and RECCO reflector for inbound snow rescue make this jacket functional in every season, be it wet, windy, or snowy. $550, hellyhansen.com
