How to choose the right windproof jacket?

A windproof jacket is a lightweight garment with a windproof insulating membrane on the outer shell. It is generally worn as a third layer during the mid-season to protect against the elements. Windbreakers are versatile and can be used in a wide range of situations, whether for everyday wear, sports (mountain biking, trail running, running), walking, etc.

Depending on the model and its features, a windproof jacket can offer additional protection against water with a waterproof rain jacket, against moisture with a breathable jacket, or against cold with a warm windproof jacket.

Windproof jackets are compact and practical, easy to take anywhere, and can be quickly put on or taken off to suit the wearer's needs. For example, it can be useful for coping with a feeling of heat during a run, or for avoiding thermal shock when descending a mountain pass on a mountain bike after a climb in the sun. It's an essential accessory for any sportsman.

Different types of jacket

There are a variety of windproof jacket models for different uses, whether in sports or everyday life:
  • The classic folding windbreaker,
  • Windbreakers designed specifically for hiking,
  • Windbreakers for running and trails,
  • MTB-specific windbreakers,
  • The warm, lined windbreaker for cold conditions,
  • Urban windbreakers for city use.

The classic foldable

The classic folding windbreaker offers versatile protection for everyday use. Often referred to as a "k-way", it is made from a very light fabric that makes it both windproof and rainproof. Its main feature is its light weight and ability to be folded and stored easily in a small pocket, making it space-saving and practical to take anywhere.

For hiking

Hiking windbreakers are specially designed to protect hikers from the elements, while offering breathability during exercise. There are two main types:
  1. Softshell: This windproof hiking jacket is made up of two layers. It comprises a thermal fleece layer that provides warmth for the hiker, and a water-repellent outer layer that offers protection against minor weather conditions. This jacket can withstand light showers and cool mid-season temperatures.
  2. Hardshell jacket: This is a 100% waterproof windproof jacket, but without the insulating inner layer of a softshell. This touring windbreaker offers complete protection against the elements, but is best worn with a fleece for optimum thermal insulation.

For mountain biking

The MTB-specific windbreaker is designed to meet the demands of mountain biking, as well as the needs of cycling in general, whether on the road, gravel, racing, etc. This type of windbreaker, available for both men and women, generally features a rainproof (water-repellent or waterproof) coating and a helmet-compatible hood.

Road bike windbreakers are even more specialized. They feature a lighter fabric and a tailored cut, with a shorter front and longer rear length. This design is intended to optimize aerodynamics and protection for the cyclist while riding.

For trail/running

The running windbreaker, sometimes called the trail windbreaker, is specially designed for high-intensity running activities, such as road running, trail running or Nordic walking. This sports jacket is made from a water-repellent and extremely breathable fabric, offering protection from the elements and enabling runners to train without being cooled by their own perspiration.

The padded windbreaker

For winter or cold-weather outings, there are warm, lined windbreakers that offer protection against wind, water and low temperatures. Often called parkas or down jackets, these thicker windproof jackets are waterproof and feature insulating layers both inside and out.

Unlike other types of jacket, these warm windbreakers are specially designed for winter activities, when temperatures are low: mountain biking on snow, trails, hiking, sea outings, etc.

For the city

The urban windbreaker is an elegant, comfortable jacket designed for city wear. Made from waterproof fabric, it offers optimum protection for everyday use.

This type of urban windbreaker jacket can take different forms, such as an oilskin with a waterproof kerosene or plastic coating, or a caban, a short, warm, waterproof jacket inspired by traditional marine outfits.

For what purpose?

Depending on your intended use, here are the recommendations for choosing your windproof jacket:
  1. Mid-season outings or multi-day hikes: opt for a Hardshell-type windproof jacket. It allows you to adjust the layers according to the temperature. Wear the windbreaker alone over a technical t-shirt in windy conditions, or add a fleece underneath if you need to keep warm.

  2. Day trips in summer: a foldable windbreaker is ideal. It stays in your bag and only comes out when there's a shower or unexpected wind. This lightweight jacket will keep you dry without making you too hot.

  3. Winter outings or ski resorts: opt for a warm windbreaker like a parka or down jacket. Choose a jacket with a substantial thermal lining and total waterproofing to withstand the snow.

  4. City outings in wet weather: Choose a fully waterproof urban windbreaker. You can opt for a Hardshell jacket or a parka-type lined windbreaker. These options provide complete protection against water and wind, which is essential for long city walks.

  5. Sports: For intense activity such as running, trail running or mountain biking, opt for a windbreaker specially designed for these activities, offering great breathability. For gentler activities such as walking, fishing or sailing, choose a softshell jacket, which is both breathable and insulating.

By taking these recommendations into account, you'll be able to choose the windproof jacket best suited to your specific use.

What are the criteria?


Windproof jackets offer two types of protection against water and humidity: water-repellent and waterproof.

Water-repellent windbreakers have an outer coating on which water drops slide off without penetrating the fabric. These models are suitable for light rains and showers. However, they cannot withstand large quantities of water.

Waterproof windbreakers are made of fabrics that completely prevent water from penetrating the jacket. They are ideal for longer outings such as day hikes, treks or in snowy conditions. They are true rain jackets.

Depending on how you intend to use your windproof jacket, whether for sports, urban or multi-purpose use, it's important to choose the right protection. For example, our DSJ down jacket is fully waterproof, offering optimum protection against light and heavy showers. What's more, its warm, lined interior makes it resistant to snow and low temperatures.


If you're looking for a windbreaker suitable for sports, it's important to give priority to good breathability, which will allow perspiration to evacuate efficiently. Running windbreakers with GORE-TEX membranes offer optimum breathability, making them ideal for all types of running and all seasons.


It's important to note that not all windproof jackets feature thermal insulation. So, if you're looking for a windbreaker that offers extra warmth, it's essential to carefully check the model's level of thermal insulation.

Similarly, if you prefer a windproof jacket without thermal insulation so that you can wear fleeces or thick sweaters underneath, it's advisable to choose a model with a cut that's loose enough to allow you to be comfortable while wearing your other clothes.


In addition to the main criteria for choosing a windbreaker, there are several accessory criteria that can enhance comfort and performance according to your specific needs, such as cuffs, pockets, collar and hood.

The cuffs of windproof jackets should be fitted with elastics to ensure effective protection against water ingress, especially if you're using your windbreaker as a rain jacket. Adjustable cuffs with Velcro or elastics are also handy for adjusting their tightness to the size of your wrists or the volume of your gloves.

The size, waterproofing and location of pockets should be carefully considered. They should be large enough to hold your hands, gloves or even a hiking map. Pocket placement should not interfere with wearing a backpack, and seams should be watertight to protect contents from the elements.

The hood of your windbreaker should be adapted to the activities you'll be doing. For hiking, the hood must be compatible with a backpack. If you're a road, gravel or mountain biker, the hood shouldn't interfere with helmet use or cause discomfort by inflating with air while riding.

The collar of your windproof jacket is an area prone to chafing and water infiltration. Pay close attention to the type of fabric used for the collar, and to any buttons that may be uncomfortable to wear and cause irritation. It's best to choose a collar with a tightening system to protect you from the rain.
