Mens Lightweight Jackets

Men's Lightweight Jackets

As the days get lighter and the winter breeze disappears, our cosy coats are no longer our best friends but a burden. The dog walk no longer requires you to layer up, and you can't get far before you regret the padded parka.

It's time to pack away your winter wear and welcome back your spring wardrobe. If you want to stay comfortable, without sacrificing style, then hello to lightweight jackets.

The key to choosing the right lightweight jacket is finding one that fits well and is easily packable if you do get too warm.

With that in mind, we've put together a few of our favourites to help guide you in finding the perfect addition to your wardrobe! 

 

1. Craghoppers Creevey Jacket

Craghoppers Creevey Jacket

 

As the spring collections filter through our website, we're welcoming vibrant colourways that instantly make us forget the cold winter months. The latest addition to the Craghoppers range comes in a refreshing orange or classic black pepper. It has a stylish feel to it and, though the perfect jacket for walking or camping, it could be dressed up to meet with friends.

The Creevey jacket has an impressive 8,000mm waterproof rating; as well as a Craghoppers AquaDry membrane, which ensures the water runs off the jacket even in the worst downpour.

The breathability is up to 15,000g/m2, which is perfect to avoid hot flushes. It is ideal if you're walking far or hiking, as the fabric will absorb moisture and release it through the material itself, allowing it to breathe. It has a lightweight feel, but also layers well with the Craghoppers Galway Half-Zip.

Overall, Craghoppers have created yet another smart packable jacket that feels like great quality. A piece we would expect would be a staple in your wardrobe for a long time without the worry of becoming outdated.

 

 2. Ariat Mens Coastal Jacket

 

 The Ariat Coastal Jacket is an impressive addition to our Ariat collection. We're delighted to be able to stock their new spring clothing range for the first time and it has exceeded our expectations. 

Ariat's Coastal Waterproof Jacket is perfect for anyone looking for a durable and reliable waterproof jacket. Though it is not as lightweight as the Creevey, it still has an airy feel, which makes it easy to wear for any activity. The two-way zipper allows you to customize your ventilation, while the zippered hand and chest pockets provide plenty of storage options.

The jacket features the AriatTEK® Cold Series technology and is completely breathable and waterproof. Though many would think Ariat is an equestrian brand, it has proven popular with our dog walkers and farmers, and after trying this product out, it's no wonder why. 

It comes in a warm navy and has all the premium finishes you would expect. It's also worth mentioning that we stock the matching Women's Coastal Jacket!

 

3. Helly Hansen Seven J Jacket 

 

Helly Hansen Seven J

 

A popular brand with our customers, Helly Hansen is known for being practical yet stylish. The brand new Seven J Jacket is highly windproof with 2-12 CFM strong wind resistance for mountaineering and has a breathability range of up to 10,000. 

It comes in four attractive colours that are all branded with the Helly Hansen logo on the chest. It features a chin guard to help protect you against wind and rain, and it also has a large hood that can be adjusted with two front toggles. It feels light enough to pack away in your rucksack, but the 2 layer construction will ensure you don't get cold if the sun disappears. 

We would recommend ordering your usual size even if you do indeed layer up, as it is roomy enough for a light fleece. 

Overall, a great product for those walking in tougher weather conditions or those who like to hike. If mother nature does decide to rain on your parade, we would feel confident that this jacket would protect you without overheating.

 

4. Didriksons Basil Jacket 

 

Didriksons Basil Jacket

 

 

Originally designed for the fishermen in Sweden, Didriksons' waterproofing technology is one of the best. A brand we've stocked for many years, Didriksons releases a new collection each season, and this spring/summer has a refreshingly simplistic look.

The Basil Jacket is breathable with a waterproof rating of 10,000mm. In warm weather, the two-way front zip can be opened to allow for extra ventilation. It also features inner pockets, which are perfect for zipping your phone into when on the move. 

The jacket also looks visually impressive. The new collection comes in a choice of neutral earth tones, which we love! They have also added reflective details, perfect for those late-night dog walkers!

Another great product from Didriksons that will carry you through till autumn.
