Weighing less than 2.5 ounces, the breathable, wind-resistant Salomon S-Lab Light Jackets are ideal for any aerobic activity that demands weight be kept to a minimum.

I am wearing Salomon’s S-Lab light jacket. Extremely packable with very light weight. It serves as a great emergency shell or for aerobic activities a great water resistant, wind resistant top.
The S-Lab light jacket has an active cut. I want to make mention here. I have got on a large, should be wearing a medium. That would be the appropriate size here. It will fit over certainly light weight base layers, t-shirts, but otherwise should be, again, a fairly close fit. You can wear it under other layers, but it really is designed to be an external piece, a top layer.
The S-Lab light jacket is available in a men’s and also a women’s version which I have got here in front of me now. Both made of that same climowind fabrication, extremely light weight. The men’s checks in at just two and a half ounces and the women’s jacket is even a little bit lighter in weight than that. Jackets ball down to pack size, basically fifth size so you can fit that in just about any pack pocket or even in a waist belt, a running belt, something like that or lashed to the exterior of a pack, again, so keeps it readily at hand.
Despite being that light weight, it does have a full length zipper, so easy in and out on this jacket. There is just a little bit of fabric here behind the zipper to cut down on any wear. Just a little touch of comfort on a jacket. That is a nice little feature.
Some fairly minimalist elasticity on the cuffs and also at the hem of the jacket. Again, in keeping with that active fit.
The white fabrication also reflective hits here on the front and the rear of the jacket on the back here below the neck. It gives it really great visibility. So a nice option for night running, anywhere where any type of activity, cycling for that matter where you would want to be seen.
At the pack size at the pack weight of this jacket it also makes a great back up shell or wind shirt for fast and light back packing. It is just a really nice aerobic offering from Salomon.
