Cold-weather athletes love the lightweight coverage of a fleece jacket. To customize your level of warmth, pair your fleece jacket with a thermal baselayer or wear it under a soft shell jacket. Fleece and insulated vests are also a great option for those looking to take their workout outdoors.
Carve up slopes in an insulated jacket. Insulated jackets designed with stretchable fabrication allow you to maintain more natural mobility. Think about whether you need your jacket’s critical seams taped. As a jacket is stitched, needle holes leave the garment vulnerable to water seepage. Jackets with critical seams taped are designed to fully block air and water, but minimize your jacket’s breathability.
When it comes to your jacket, comfort is always key. Look for soft, brushed inner linings that keep you warm when the temperatures drop.
It’s the details that make the difference in a quality men’s jacket.
Your jacket should be designed with technical fabrics that block cold air and moisture. When you consult product information, you’ll find some jackets are treated with “DWR,” or durable water repellent. DWR coats individual fibers on a garment, rather than the entire surface of a jacket. This ensures both water repellency and breathability—the best of both worlds.
A raised collar provides some extra coverage from the cold. Elastic in your jacket’s wrist cuffs and waist helps seal out cold. Zippered or buttoned pockets ensure you can stash away small essentials on the go.
