Swedish company Fjällräven interlaces the classic style of waxed cotton with the technical fibers of polyester in their jack-of-all-trades Reporter Lite Jacket ($260). The Reporter Lite’s G-1000 fabric can be waxed for excellent wind and water protection or washed away for breathability and comfort in fairer climes. In the case of full-on tropical weather, the jacket can be transformed into a vest with two zips of its removable sleeves. The separated sleeves can be stored in any of the jacket’s 10 pockets (four snaps, four zippers and two classic hand warmers); we suggest losing your cell phone in one the next time you’re on an adventure.
