Tried and Trew in the Pacific North-wet, the Cosmic is functional, fly, and feather-light. Weighing in at 23-ounces and sporting 20,000-mm waterproofing, this hard shell spits in the face of oncoming storms. It's tough enough to survive brushes with branches and being dragged along rocks. It is unusually warm for a hard shell, yet breathes exceptionally as body temperatures rise. It is one of the more technical and backcountry-friendly hard shells out there. And it's pretty freaking stylish.
