Wind-resistant jackets for light weather protection

 

Taking on low wind chills on a camping trip or just looking for a running jacket to protect against gusts on your next trail running excursion, we've got plenty of wind-resistant best sellers to offer you protection. In the city, a trench coat is great to throw on over casual or professional wear. Take along a pullover sweater to layer under your winter coat for extra-chilly weather. And look for a wind- and water-resistant jacket that you can wear under your ski clothes for taking on a black diamond trail. If you need something extra durable, try something made with ripstop that you can stow with your backpacking gear for a rugged trip in the backcountry.

 

Windbreaker jackets for men and women

 

Try out men's and women's wind jackets in a variety of styles, from full-zip hooded jackets to pullover anorak jacket styles. Layer a vest over a sherpa fleece jacket to add extra warmth to a fashionable fall look. With plenty of chest pockets and hand pockets available, you can stow everything from your wallet and phone to trail snacks and a spare pair of gloves. Look for a drawstring on our hooded jackets, to keep your head protection from flying off. With plus size options available, everyone can dress their best for the day ahead.

 

What's the best windbreaker?

 

The North Face offers many jackets with wind resistance built in, from our lightest hoodies to heavyweight insulated jackets and parkas. If you're taking on heavy winds, opt for one of our fully windproof coats. Looking for something that can handle a little light rain? Many of our raincoats and waterproof jackets are also windbreakers. If you're looking to take on the cold weather, grab anything from a quilted puffer jacket to a long-sleeve fleece jacket for layering.

 

What are the advantages of a wind-resistant jacket?

 

Wind-resistant jackets often offer more breathability than fully windproof outerwear and are better for those who sweat a lot or are looking to hike long trails or exercise. Many also come with a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish to offer some protection as a rain jacket, and they're often a lighter option than full windproofing, making them the perfect packable jacket for backpacking.

 

What is the difference between a windbreaker and a wind-resistant jacket?

 

A windbreaker is any jacket that offers some measure of wind protection and includes everything from windproof jackets to wind-resistant softshell jackets. You can choose your level of wind protection based on what you need from your coat.

On a blustery day, try wind-resistant outerwear to keep out the chill from mountainside to seashore. Shop for a wind-resistant jacket to block out the breeze.
