For the type of runner who’s well aware of wind’s heat-zapping capabilities but refuses to be weighed down by a bulky jacket, La Sportiva has literally got you covered with the Briza Windbreaker. This ultralight piece features windproof materials on the chest, arms, and hood to keep you protected from the fiercest of gusts and a DWR treatment to fend off drizzle. However, unlike so many other windbreakers, the Briza has recognized the importance of breathability so that you don’t feel like a chocolate bar melting in the sun. A full mesh back lets your steam escape as you continue to scramble on that exposed trail. However, once you’re back on the leeward side of the mountain, the Briza packs down small into a pocket in the hood. So small, in fact, it’s hard to conjure up a good enough excuse to leave it at home. The Briza is a svelte and dependable partner against unpredictable mountain weather!
