Most people need a winter coat for the coldest time of year and a summer jacket for the warmer days. However there is a time during spring and autumn where summer jackets are just too cold and winter jackets are much too warm. This is the ideal moment for the light jacket.
Our Women’s Collection
At Airforce we have a beautiful collection of winter jackets and summer jackets for women, many of which are suitable as light jackets. For these you shouldn’t look to our thin bomber jackets or our thick padded winter jackets which are made specifically for their own seasons.
A more suitable choice is for example the women’s long coat made with softshell materials which can be found in our summer collection. Because softshell is a relatively thin material it’s ideal as a summer jacket, as long as it’s not padded.
Our padded jackets with Sorona DuPont® lining are suited as light jackets. A padded coat, no matter how thin, is always warmer than a jacket without lining. The lining in our padded light jackets is not made of down, but an environmentally friendly synthetic material. This summer jacket, which doubles as a light jacket, is available in many different colours, so you can always find one that suits you. We mostly use rustic colours at Airforce. This way our jackets always fit your outfit.
Are you looking for a warmer light jacket? In that case you should take a look at our winter collection. Although a short winter jacket like our Ash jacket has thicker padding than the padded jackets in our women’s summer collection, it can still be worn as a light jacket. This jacket accentuates your body, because it’s fitted. The Ash jacket and padded jacket are very similar in design. If you’ve become a fan of the padded jacket in the summer you can start wearing the Ash jacket in the winter, or vice versa.
Men’s Light Jackets
Women aren’t the only ones who can wear a light jacket, we also have a couple of great options for men in our online shop. You can find some nice padded summer jackets with ecologically responsible filling in our men’s collection. Both our padded jackets and our Sorona jackets are very suitable as light jackets for men. They are a bit warmer that the average summer jacket, but not thick enough to use as a ski jacket. This makes them ideal to wear in the spring and fall, when your parka is too hot, but a hoodie alone won’t keep you warm enough.
In our selection of winter Jackets there are several options. Besides the Sorona jacket from our men’s winter collection, we also have the George trench coat for example. A trench coat is usually somewhat thinner that a padded coat, but can still keep you quite warm thanks to its length. This water repellent winter jacket is very suitable for the spring and fall as well. Our padded bomber jackets are also perfect light jackets. These bomber jackets are thicker than summer jackets, but because they’re short winter jackets, they can be worn in between summer and winter as well.
At Airforce we like to think about the whole family. That’s why we have a couple of beautiful light Jackets for children in our collection. For girls we have a padded jacket with Sorona filling for example. They are available in different colours and you can find this with the other girl’s summer jackets.
Our children’s collection is mostly similar in design as the women’s and men’s collections, but in children’s sizes. This makes the Ash jacket one of the best light Jackets for girls in our winter collection. You can’t go wrong with such a short padded jacket.
If you’re looking for a light jacket for boys, you can opt for our summer jacket made with soft shell material. These aren’t as thick as the padded jackets mentioned above, but are wind proof and water repellent. So they will keep you warm and dry in the rain. Do you want a thicker light jacket for boys? In that case our parkas, like the Classic parka, might be just what you want. In the end it depends on your experience with summer and winter jackets what you prefer as a light jacket.
