Can’t tell you how long I’ve been raving about this windbreaker, which my father bought for me when we were on a trip in Colorado five or six years ago, and is now on sale for 50% off in select colors. It is fantastic for hiking and outdoor activities when weather is fickle, as it is waterproof and wind-resistant, but very lightweight. It’s a good insulating layer, but it also has vents that you can open to cool off. It’s also a great travel companion since it weighs nothing and can be compressed into a tiny square. But more recently, it’s been clutch in city life, as well! I wear this on rainy days with athletic leggings (or, if facing a colossal downpour, I pair with their rain pants) for the commute to/from mini’s school. I also wear it while running in rain or against the wind and have even found it to be a fantastic top layer in super cold weather, layered over a merino base and my insulated running jacket (on sale in more colors here and here; I own in the white). It provides just enough insulation (and protection from wind) to keep me warm into the teens! I say this from experience, as I ran yesterday in this getup when the news told me it “felt like 12 degrees” but I remained warm.
Other things I love about it: amply sized pockets, a lean fit (not as bulky/boxy as many other windbreaker styles), toggles that enable you to cinch the hood to fit around your face perfectly, velcro at the wrists for a tailored closure, and did I mention it’s machine-washable?!
This jacket is just a slam-dunk. 10/10 would recommend.
Every single member of my family (parents, siblings, siblings-in-law) owns this coat. A great gift for a sporty/outdoorsy loved one!
ALSO REALLY IMPORTANT: My current favorite skincare product, Clarins Double Serum, is on sale for $59 (the cheapest I’ve ever seen it; regularly $89). This is a holy grail product for me. I prefer it to any other serum I’ve tried. It leaves skin hydrated, gleaming, and radiant; smells like heaven; and I’m hooked.
P.S. Just added a new SPORT category to my shop with other outdoor/athletic/fitness finds.
P.P.S. Some great rainy weather finds here.
