Early sailors no doubt paid close attention to the winds, depending as they did on predictable gusts to ply their trade on the open ocean. Even if you couldn't tell a trade wind from a mistral, a little extra care for how to negotiate this element will go a long way. Enter the DNA Wind jacket. Light, breathable, wind-resistant, and water-repellent, this tidy jacket is everything you could hope for from a specialized layer intended to be packed along until it's needed. The key to the magic of this top is its breathable back panel and stretch inserts that perfectly complement the weather mitigating properties. The zippered front permits easy layering over other running garb, while a comfy, body-hugging fit won't dance distractingly in the wind. To make a long story short, the clear benefits of the DNA Wind jacket lead us to gently suggest bringing it along next time you decide to go for a run up a ridgeline or upon a sailing vessel.
