As summer is due to gradually cool down with chilly nights and rainy days on the horizon it’s a sure indicator that warm weather clothing won’t be useful for too much longer. I’m all for wearing shorts and hoodies any time of the year but as the weather begins to transition so should our clothing, and lightweight jackets are the best option for those in between days.

The perfect outer shell for unpredictable weather, lightweight jackets reign supreme simply because they can be packed away at a moment's notice without disrupting your outfit too much. Along with popular brands like Arc’teryx and Stone Island, we rounded up a list of the best packable jackets for the summer and beyond to protect you against the elements.

Unfold our favorite packable jackets.
