The lightest of the tops we’ve tested, Kokatat’s high-performance expedition top offers an ideal mix of protection where you need it with breathability where you want it. High wear areas like the shoulders, elbows and forearms are Cordura-reinforced, while the side panels are made of ultra-breathable Gore-Tex XCR. Attention to details like a key lanyard in the self-draining chest pocket and a tasteful reflective logo make this one classy jacket.
High Sign: Unsurpassed fit that feels tough without any unwanted bulk.
Low Sign: No imported beer for an entire season to afford this one.
