What is a windbreaker Jacket?
For the purposes of this article, we consider a windbreaker as a lightweight coat specifically designed to block wind chill. These jackets may also have varying degrees of water resistance. Windbreakers are usually made from synthetic materials like nylon and polyester and may include features like elastic waistbands and armbands, removable hoods and large pockets. Some windbreakers may also use reflective materials for visibility at night for low light running. Another feature is that a lot of these lightweight windbreakers are extremely packable. They come with a front pocket that the jacket can fold into, to about the size of a candy bar. So you can take them along for any trip or run and not even notice them.
The windbreakers in this list will have a mixture of a lot of these features, but we start off with one of our favorites.
