It's officially fall and whether you'd like to admit it or not, temperatures across certain parts of the country will no longer be sunny and warm from sunrise to sunset. If you're still committed to getting a workout in outside, you definitely need a jacket that's not only lightweight, but also boasts incredible features to make running a breeze.

Picking a jacket can be daunting. After securing a budget, now comes the task of selecting something that you can layer over a long-sleeve shirt, travels well and most importantly, promises to keep you dry and warm. That being said, we scoured across various brands and found 10 jackets and vests that fit the aforementioned requirements and work well with all budgets.
