There's nothing worse than standing in a rainstorm and discovering your rain jacket and pants aren't as water-resistant as you thought. Old Harbor Outfitters has designed the Hydrosphere series of foul-weather gear to keep you dry in the worst conditions. Hydrosphere technology combines ripstop nylon with a perforated laminate that not only keeps water on the outside but also allows vapor to pass through. All seams are taped, and all zipper tracks are completely waterproof. In addition, there are adjustable Velcro straps on the sleeves to snug around your wrists and keep every drop of water out. The Hydrosphere design is available in both pants and jackets that retail at $125 and $175 respectively; www.oldharboroutfitters.com.
