If you're going to pack one shell this spring, it probably should be one of Patagonia's Houdini Jacket. The versatile jackets come in four different styles and are perfect for any outdoor activity. The nylon ripstop of the jacket is so lightweight that the jacket weighs just 4-oz and still manages to be waterproof, windproof, and breathable. It also packs right into its own compact pocket so you can throw it in your backpack or travel bag so you'll always be ready no matter where you go.
