Whilst summer is great for weather normally, there are some days when the temperatures don’t quite meet your expectations and a lightweight jacket will be needed. Luckily, there is certainly no shortage of options in the lightweight jacket department and there is something to suit every style and budget. Check out our pick of 8 of the coolest lightweight jackets for summer below:

Le Mont St Michel Washed work jacket x Blitz ($290)

Multi-purpose and supremely stylish, we love this Le Mont St Michel Washed work jacket x Blitz ($290) here at Coolector HQ. It is a classic workwear jacket that has been crafted in collaboration with Blitz motorcycles. The shell is made from a 100% cotton moleskin fabric that’s incredibly robust and it includes a removable, quilted vest for added warmth and protection. ($290)


Taylor Stitch Longshore Jacket ($298)

This rugged and water- and wind-repellent waxed canvas jacket is made to weather the storm wherever your adventures take you and we’re loving the vintage style aesthetics here at The Coolector. The Taylor Stitch Longshore Jacket ($298) is made from organic waxed cotton canvas milled and treated by Halley Stevensons and offers plenty of storage for all your EDC gear. ($298)


BeardedGoat Foundry Jacket ($128)

A great looking, lightweight work jacket which is an ideal layer on it’s own or over warmer gear, what’s not to like about the BeardedGoat Foundry Jacket ($128). It is crafted from a cotton and spandex blend that allows for plenty of movement and it is tough enough to handle itself in the shop, but is built with enough stretch to keep you shaping boards and adjusting derailleurs with ease. ($128)


Howler Brothers Spellbinder Parka Jacket ($198)

When the temperatures dip this summer, this supremely warm yet packable parka which is packed with 100 gram PrimaLoft® Gold insulation will tick all the right boxes.

Wellen Windward Full Zip Jacket ($69)

Lightweight and adventure ready, the Wellen Windward Full Zip Jacket ($69) represents excellent value for money. The water-resistant fabric sheds light rain and splashes and it vents in the rear with mesh liner for breathability. The stowable hood adjusts with a drawcord and vegan leather cord stoppers and the cinchable bottom hem for extra protection against the wind. ($69)


Eddie Bauer Tech Skyliner Jacket ($209)

A great looking limited-edition down jacket from Eddie Bauer’s Centennial Collection, this is a fantastic choice for a lightweight piece of outerwear for summer and autumn. The Eddie Bauer Tech Skyliner Jacket ($209) filled with ultra high-loft 800 fill premium down that’s Responsible Down Certified and the bomber style silhouette reflects the original 1936 Skyliner design with an updated fit.
