Five Of The Best

Windbreakers

The rain's due back but temperature's are still up. In a predicament like this, you need something light enough for spring and waterproof enough for random downpours. Here's five picks to help you through: 

1 K-Way for New Balance
When you think rain you think K-Way. Well, you should think K-Way - they've pretty much cornered the lightweight rain jacket in Canada and have been gaining exposure over here.

Their pac-a-mac is, as the name suggests, small enough to be packed away into a bag. The brand's relatively low status means that it'll be rare that you run into a mate wearing the same jacket. Unless they're reading this too. (£60, Crooked Tongues)

 

2 Uniqlo
Uniqlo has always been astonishing value and here's a great example of why. This rain jacket is windproof, water repellent and costs just £40. It's a no brainer. (£40,Uniqlo)

3 YMC
Linen has had a bad rep. This YMC jacket is made from the material - and it looks like nothing from Del Monte. It's lightweight, breathable and, unlike most rain jackets, could conceivably be worn to work. (£179, My-wardrobe)

 

4 MHL
Are you and your mates going to a festival? Great. It's inevitable you'll them at some point. Wear something bright, like this, MHL jacket so you can be easily spotted. Take it off if you're sneaking off to see Razorlight, that's an embarrassment you'll never recover from. (£345, MR PORTER)

 

5 Batten Sportswear
If you like your labels rarer than your steak, you'll love Batten sportswear. The label is in its first season and, as you can see, they specialise in fancy outerwear. This is made from Taslan, a waterproof, quick drying fabric usually used in football kits. (£195, Oi Polloi)
