The Best Mens Lightweight Jackets

The best men's lightweight jackets


A lightweight jacket is one of those dependable items that is a must for any wardrobe. The beauty of a light jacket is that it suits not only the Spring weather, but can be useful all year round. 

Having the perfect jacket for hikes, strolls around the countryside, and camping trips makes your life a whole lot easier. Particularly if that jacket is also versatile enough for the coffee run or for picking the kids up from school. It's a win, win situation - and we've made it even simpler for you by showcasing some of our best options here. 

Top country and outdoor brands we know and love continue to impress us with their lightweight Spring jackets that have fantastic features and stylish designs. They help you tackle the unpredictable weather in your day-to-day life. 


1. Ariat Coastal Jacket

Ariat are always one of our favourites for outdoor apparel, as they effortlessly combine style with technical innovation.

Perfect for the cold weather, the Coastal jacket features AriatTEK® Cold Series technology that helps keep your body core warm. The waterproof and breathable membrane takes the worry out of looming grey clouds, and we also love the use of the two-way zipper so you can control the ventilation. 

A removable hood and zippered external and internal pockets again add to the efficiency of this waterproof jacket, and the EcoDry™ finish offers earth-friendly protection against the elements. It's a great choice for anyone looking for a comfortable and attractive jacket that can be put to the test in rainy and chilly conditions.

With high waterproof and breathability ratings, this incredibly lightweight jacket packs away when not in use. Not only is its weather resistance impressive, it has also lots of pockets and comes with a detachable, adjustable hood. It is a practical garment that stands out from the crowd with its quality materials and intuitive design. 

Made with tough, hard-wearing fabric, Hoggs have designed a jacket that is suited to those working out in the fields, those on city breaks or going camping, and those who simply want a jacket they can rely on. Hoggs look after those who love the outdoors, and the Culloden is a staple of their FieldPro collection

There's not much that Jack Pyke can't do in terms of country clothing, and their lightweight jackets further illustrate their dedication to providing the best products at the best prices.

The Featherlite jacket offers fantastic protection from the wet weather of the British countryside, and it is a comfy and reliable option for the active and busy man. With an elasticated waistcord and velcro cuff adjustment that helps provide the best fit, the neutral and streamlined design makes for a practical jacket that you could almost say was the countryman's alternative to a bomber jacket! 

It does a double duty of being both waterproof and breathable, and the front zip fastening is secured by a storm flap. It can be paired with a micro-fleece shirt and work pants for those facing a day's graft outdoors, and also looks great with just jeans and trainers when you're out and about.
