The weather forecast for spring is, as ever, changeable. But those spells of sunshine sure are tantalising, enough to persuade anyone to escape the confines of the gym and risk getting caught in a shower or taking a buffeted by winds. All you need is a light but hardy jacket that won’t restrict you when stopping by that park bench to bust out a few sets of dips. Sports jackets like these, picked by the experts at Coach’s sister brand, Men’s Fitness.
Björn Borg Pan
The standout design feature on this lightweight packable jacket is the collage effect, which runs throughout the new Björn Borg spring/summer 2017 range. Wearing these bold geometric shapes will put you ahead of the style pack this year. £80, buy on bjornborg.com (opens in new tab)
Reebok ONE Series
This lightweight jacket contains 11% elastane stretch woven fabric to maximise mobility. It also has a slim-fit cut, making you feel fast and aerodynamic on the move. £62.95, forthcoming on reebok.co.uk (opens in new tab)
Saucony Sonic Reflex
Under Armour Tactical Softshell
Under Armour’s Storm technology repels water but retains breathability. This loose-cut lightweight jacket has been designed to maximise mobility and is wind-resistant so you can keep working hard in all conditions. £110, buy on underarmour.co.uk (opens in new tab)
Nike Impossibly Light
If speed is what you’re chasing, this lightweight shell won’t slow you down. The fabric is water-repellant and it also keeps you shielded from the wind – and when you’ve run through the storm, you can pack it away and keep on moving. £75, buy on store.nike.com (opens in new tab)
