If breathability is your biggest concern, the new, lightweight Velez could be for you. The fabric is almost rustle-free and so comfortable and breathable you’ll feel happy wearing it in almost any weather. The jacket offers excellent ease of movement, is totally waterproof and if you need extra ventilation two fully adjustable side zips provide a welcome flow of air. The deep hood has a wired peak and swivels easily when you turn your head. Quite heavy and expensive, too.
Men’s version: Yes
