lululemon’s first-ever hiking collection has been the talk of the performance world since it first hit the scene earlier this year, and there are several pieces worth talking about in its latest venture. The brand’s Water-Repellent Fleece Hiking Jacket is one of many standouts from the collection, and features like its convenient hem cinch are what make it such a winner.
While the jacket’s cozy fleece composition may imply a bit of fragility, this technical piece of outerwear is remarkably sturdy and tailored for a trek through the backcountry. It’s made from a technical, water-repellent fabric with four-way stretch properties for enhanced comfort in all scenarios. Above all else, the jacket is sustainable thanks to the Canadian clothier’s use of recycled polyester throughout the entire trim and over 90% of its body.
As far as functionality goes, the jacket comes equipped with a pair of underarm vents, resulting in optimized airflow for added breathability in case the temperature picks up. On the contrary, the classic-fitting piece also has a close-fitting hood for heat retention when it gets too cold. The jacket is available in two stylish colors — Dark Oxide and the pictured Laurel Green — that are sure to go well with the rest of your lululemon hiking attire — and will even look great off the trails, too.
If you need a trusty jacket for your next outdoor adventure, there’s no need to look beyond this. lululemon’s Water-Repellent Fleece Hiking Jacket is available on the brand’s online store for $198, along with the rest of its new hiking collection.
