Sierra Designs Cyclone Eco Jacket
($195; SierraDesigns.com)

This is not the lightest nor the toughest waterproof and breathable shell jacket, but it's perfect for most of us.  the 2.5-layer fabric feels burly enough for year-round use.  A helmet-compatible hood, multiple pockets and pit zips give it multisport ability.

Green Cred:
The Cyclone is the best example of SD's Green Effect program, an effort to create a "harmonious relationship between our business world and the outdoor world."  To that end, the company looks for sustainable ways to make its products, reduces waste, uses renewable power and recycles.  There are dozens of products in its Green Effect program.  The Cyclone shell is made from recycled polyester and seams are sealed using PVC-free tape.
