Best Men's Windbreakers For Lightweight Autumn Layering

The first breeze of autumn is, unfortunately (for summer lovers), right around the corner meaning that rocking a shirt and shorts at all hours of the day is sadly coming to an end. So, what’s the solution? Windbreakers!

These windproof and (mostly) water-resistant jackets are made from a combination of synthetic and natural fibres, and get their weather-resistant properties from nylon, polyamide, and wool. Windbreakers are normally worn as part of an athletic ensemble, but that’s not to say they’re limited to the running track.

These days, most windbreakers are stylish enough to be worn casually, like to a weekend breakfast, or a late night beach walk, as well as when you’re being athletic on cooler days.

Windbreaker FAQs

What's the difference between a windbreaker and a rain jacket?

A windbreaker is very lightweight and windproof, and it only resists light rain. Whereas a rain jacket is thicker and heavier, and is completely waterproof to withstand torrential rains.
