During spring and fall when temperatures aren’t too hot or too cold, you probably want to be wearing a softshell jacket. They’re lightweight enough that you won’t sweat in moderate temperatures but are still wind-resistant and can be layered for extra warmth. When you decide that you want a softshell jacket, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind, like what brand you want or how thin or thick you want it to be. A thick jacket might sound better but in reality, if you prefer to layer or want an extra base for winter months then a thin jacket can be great.
