The perfect jacket has to do many things at once. More or less everything, in fact: keep you dry, keep you warm (but not too warm), and keep everything you're carrying in just the right place. The Global Jacket handles it all, and is streamlined to look good while roomy enough to accommodate extra layers. The structured hood offers thorough protection to your head and face, and gets out of the way the rest of the time. Seriously waterproof, the 2-way stretch fabric makes it seriously flexible as well, while mesh side pockets open to let cooling air flow in when you need it (and zip shut when you don't).
