The On Active Jacket is designed to provide stylish protection from rain, wind and cold in a lightweight package. It’s made with 100 percent polyamide - a durable fiber that absorbs but doesn’t retain moisture. The material is woven in a crosshatch pattern that makes it more resistant to the elements.
“The materials feel super smooth and lightweight, which is a bonus. They also feel durable, like they can hold up to a lot of wear and tear, which is essential for active wear,” says Caroline.
“The fit on this jacket was nice for me. Loose enough to wear insulating layers underneath, but with enough shape to reduce drafts in the sleeves and bottom of the torso. It’s nice and lightweight,” says Alex.
The jacket is unique looking, with an angular zipper across the left shoulder that makes it easier to pull on and off. A large zippered front pocket serves two purposes - to hold your essentials and to hold the jacket itself. That’s right, when you’re done with the jacket it folds into its front pocket for easy stowing. But some reviewers felt that the pocket wasn’t practical for storing items on the run, due to its size and placement.
