RainOut Forecast Shell II
One essential characteristic for a must-have windbreaker is its ability to be lightweight without sacrificing practicality or performance. The RainOut Forecast Shell II ($169) remains sleek and lightweight while still staying durable, water repellent, and abrasion resistant. With a stylish recycled nylon shell, this piece is easy to layer and toss in a bag for on-the-go wear.
Rock Ridge PrimaLoft® Jacket
Those who want an option that's ready for cool-weather workouts would be wise to look to the Rock Ridge PrimaLoft® Jacket ($178). This fitted jacket maintains an athletic cut that hits lower on the body for added coverage. It's also water repellant and abrasion resistant with superior Primaloft® Eco insulation that provides serious warmth.
Run With It Jacket
Runners and windbreakers go together like peanut butter and jelly. And the Run With It Jacket ($129) is made for the all-weather, all-season runner. The breathable jacket has a loose fit that allows airflow, but despite its relaxed fit, it still keeps you guarded against water, wind, and snags. Plus, it folds down to make it portable.

Although not fully water repellant, the Legend Bomber Jacket ($169) is the ideal post-workout option for those chilly nights or mornings when the wind is blustering around town. This bomber-style jacket is perfect for layering over your favorite tank or top and wrinkle resistant so you can pack it in your bag with no worries.
