How to Select a Lightweight Jacket for Men?

While many ultralight Jackets have similar appearance and weight, their functionality can differ significantly.

The best ultralight spring jackets for trail running may differ from the best models for cool-weather hiking, climbing, and ultralight backpacking, and the typical weather conditions will also influence your selection, such as getting a jacket with water resistance capability.

Here are some things to watch for:

Breathability Vs. Weather Protection

Generally, ultralight garments sacrifice complete water resistance for increased breathability. Nevertheless, models in this category can vary widely in how they balance breathability and wind protection, and some have partially or fully waterproof fabrics while remaining ultralight and packable.

But “waterproof” in an ultralight garment does not typically provide the same level of protection as a two- or three-layer, heavier, waterproof-breathable jacket (such as Gore-Tex); it can be soaked through persistent heavy rain.

Hybrid Vs. Standard

In this context, “hybrid” refers to a jacket that combines some fully waterproof-breathable fabric — typically in the shoulders, torso, and hood — with more breathable, non-waterproof fabric in the sides and underarms, allowing the jacket to release body heat and moisture in areas that are unlikely to receive direct precipitation.

These garments are adaptable to a variety of conditions and levels of activity. By “uniform” Jacket, I refer to either a water-resistant soft-jacket organic cotton fabric or a waterproof-breathable fabric, but not a combination.

Insulated or Not Insulated

Infrequently, ultralight jackets feature a small amount of strategically placed insulation, typically in the torso, making them more of a cool-weather, shoulder-season garment that is versatile for everything from climbing big mountains in the summer to aerobic activities such as running, Nordic skiing, and hiking in the winter.

Hooded or Unhooded

An uninsulated Jacket hood is nearly essential in an ultralight jacket; it provides a perceptible increase in warmth and weather protection at minimal weight, bulk, and price cost. Many, but not all, ultralight Jackets have hoods or hooded versions, and this is a matter of personal preference and usage:

You may not need a hood if you need a Jacket for local runs of less than two hours in the wind or cool temperatures with a likelihood of light precipitation. If you plan to spend hours or days in the highlands, you should probably bring a hood.
