K-Swiss-JacketK-Swiss Tri Wind Jacket

As its name suggests, the Tri Wind sees off all but the strongest gales, with the high collar and elasticated wrists and hem keeping chilly breezes out. The fit is slim and it didn’t puff up in the breeze as much as others. Breathability is superb thanks to a stretchy mesh panel that runs up either side from the hemline to the armpits and down the inside of the arm. It also packs down small, is light and not at all cumbersome when running. Aside from that, it’s pretty basic. It lacks pockets, but you do get K-Swiss’ unique styling, which are synonymous with Kona and shout that you’re a triathlete.
