Sierra Designs Lunatic Hoody
Every feature on this full-zip Sierra Designs hoody is a nod toward simple function, but affordability and fit set the Lunatic apart from other jackets in our testing line-up. Fleece-lined, stretch woven softshell performed well in terms of weatherproof breathability: The water-resistant panel of Barricade fabric spanning the jacket's upper half (across the shoulders and in the hood) shed sleety raindrops during an aerobic snowshoe in Washington's Olympic Mountains and plush poly softshell on the jacket's lower half released heat during sweat sessions, but held warmth during rest stops. The hood itself is helmet-compatible, the jacket has five seam-taped water-resistant zippered pockets, and includes one internal stuff pocket-all features that could add cost, but instead add just warmth, durability, and versatility to this budget friendly coat.
