Breathable jackets for on-the-go comfort

Our waterproof breathable jackets are built for life on the move. Their versatility makes them perfect for switching from city adventures to hitting the trails. Stretchy construction means you can bend and twist to get around all the obstacles in your way or set up your tent without straining at the seams. On a day hike, store your extra snacks, your phone, or your wallet in a chest pocket, with hand pockets to keep your fingers toasty in a chill wind. Our warmer jackets are perfect for snowsports, with ski goggles getting their own pocket in several styles. With underarm pit zips, you can vent right where you need it most and avoid a seat buildup that can make things uncomfortable. With some of our lightest constructions available, our hiking styles are perfect for avid backpackers to add to their other men's and women's hiking gear.

Is a breathable jacket waterproof?

Yes, many of our breathable jacket styles are waterproof. Others are water-resistant, or windproof to act as a windbreaker. You can get a watertight shell jacket for weather protection of all kinds. Our waterproof shells are coated in a DWR finish (durable water repellent) to keep you comfy and dry.

We’ve made comfort a priority with our breathable jackets. When you’re ready to go adventuring, keep comfortable with a jacket that can prevent overheating.
