Whether you are serious about sports or just enjoy a brisk walk outside, softshell jackets could be your best option when it comes to outdoor activities.
The great thing about this type of jacket is the warmth it provides while being very lightweight. A softshell jacket can be worn either as an outer jacket, or when the weather takes it too far, as a layering jacket, underneath your heavier outerwear, making it a versatile item to keep in your wardrobe.
You can find numerous types of softshell jackets, which vary in design, material, and practicality. They might have a difference in breathability, insulation, and other features such as being water-resistant or whether they come with a hood.
Softshell jackets can be a suitable choice in many different sports, including running, walking, cycling, hiking, and even for more daring sports such as skiing and snowboarding.
