Packable jackets are becoming more and more popular. Whether it be for the growing popularity of bikepacking or simply our unpredictable British weather, having a spare weatherproof layer is a good idea.
There are many packable jacket options available, so I have selected five that span various price ranges, waterproofing levels and size/weights. I have also made sure to try out jackets that have a male and female specific cut, with the exception of the the Nukeproof Nirvana as I have found their sizing accommodates most riders.

I’m a fan of layering. In winter you can wear very few, minimal layers (if you choose the right materials) and control your temperature whilst having the correct barrier against the weather, and you’ll be more comfortable than you would in a bigger bulky jacket. There are so many options for windproof and waterproof jackets, and in doing this grouptest one thing has become clear – you get what you pay for. Check the material is right for your needs and then make sure the cut is going to work for you, because you wont want it to just fit, it needs to be a great fit.
