For those of us who swear by our thick, insulated jackets for the year’s most moisture-rich seasons, it’s difficult to envision a garment that could replace our weighty companions, while also being lightweight, packable, and purpose-built. Cue REI Co-op’s Westwinds GTX Jacket — a GORE-TEX-gifted layer that can pack down for use at a moment’s notice, while still offering all the characteristics of a larger wind- and water-proof offering.

The REI Co-op Westwindds GTX is a slick-looking outer layer that’s been built to take on inclement weather, thanks to a breathable, two-layer GORE-TEX PACLITE construction and ripstop nylon fabric. If you’re worried about abrasive inhibitors that can cut or rip your run-of-the-mill outerwear, you’ll be delighted to hear that this jacket will quell your fears, calling upon a comfortable brushed tricot, articulated sleeves, and a drawcord-defined hood that’s been built for use alongside various helmet systems, to cut through wind and rain. Weatherproof zippers and versatile pit zips also help to keep the Westwinds GTX breathable and ventilated. Head to REI’s website to check out three different colorways, and pick up one of your own for $199.

Purchase: $199
