The folks at Salomon make some of the best outdoor gear on the market (particularly their hiking boots). Their latest offering, the S-Lab Light Jacket, was designed to be the ultimate jacket for both trail runners and hikers.
When hitting the backcountry, whether it’s for recreation or with the intent to get a good workout, packing light is the key to success. Of course you don’t want to compromise on quality either, which can often be the case with some of the more minimalistic apparel options out there. Well, that’s not the case with this ultralight jacket. Not only does it weigh a mere 2.5 ounces, but it also folds down to fit in the palm of your hand when it’s not in use. Available in your choice of either black, white, or red, the jacket does a solid job of keeping you warm, while at the same time not preventing maneuverability and range of motion thanks to the articulated elbows. Elastic cuffs and hem ensure that the jacket will always stay secure, even while you’re giving it your all on the backroad trails. [Purchase]
