One Shell The One Outdoor Jacket

While many companies claim to make the last jacket you’ll ever need to buy, the designers behind the One Shell appear to have actually accomplished it. Their 5-in-1 jacket system has everything you need to stay comfortable and dry in nearly any conceivable weather condition.

The One Shell is essentially an outer layer matched with a variety of interchangeable zip-in layers. It’s made from Dyneema so it’s fully waterproof, wind-resistant, lightweight, and breathable — there’s even an internal eVent membrane with a C6 DWR treatment for added comfort and protection from the elements, and it even folds down into a small packable bag. You can add warmth without the sweat by zipping in the fast-drying Hybrid layer with Polartec Alpha insulation. And if you’re walking into an extremely cold environment you can zip-in the Freeze layer that features aerogel technology developed by NASA for aeronautical applications to form a total temperature barrier. Each of the layers can be purchased separately and worn as a stand-alone winter jacket or combined to form an all-weather system.
