Sometimes the weather isn’t quite cold enough for a heavy jacket. But you still need something to protect you on a windy day. Enter the wind jacket or windbreaker. These lightweight jackets are designed to resist wind but won’t leave you sweaty. Their breathable material makes them perfect for those in-between weather days. Check out our top picks for wind jackets to add to your outerwear collection.
This jacket features a built-in hood, drawstrings and a chin guard for added warmth and comfort. Along with a waterproof coating, this jacket has velcro closures at the wrists to help block out the wind and the hood can be stowed into the collar.
We also like that this women’s windbreaker has plenty of reflective elements, making it a smart option if you’re going to be outside when it’s dark. In addition to being lightweight, this jacket securely folds into the back pocket for easy portability. Note that for ladies with larger chests, it’s recommended to purchase a size up from what you would normally wear.
With flannel lining, this windbreaker keeps you warm while protecting you from the wind. Available in 22 different colors. Size down if you want a more fitted look.
