Winter semi-hibernation, forced couch potato style of living, holding up all the energies inside us, just makes us more and more likely to emotionally explode. Our rescue mission to save ourselves from chilling winters starts with putting on our armour. Yes, that's the windcheater jacket.

With slim fit windcheater, you can shed the worries of looking flabby. Zipped pockets provide secure spaces to store things and also provide shelter palms when needed.

It is necessary to wear protective cover before venturing into chilling streets. In extreme cases, these preventive measures are our only saviours from hypothermia till we can get some help.


Windcheater jackets come in attractive prints and colour like vibrant orange, tulip blue, black, maroon, grey etc that match most of the bottom wears. All branded jackets have a prominent logo design that reflects your taste, comfort level and class. All jackets come with fixed or removable hoods that have drawstrings or adjustable buttons for a stable fit.


But like all the best things this too comes with few limitations.

  • The fabric makes a very light annoying noise when your arms rub against your body. Like all problems, this too has a simple solution. Just tune into your favourite playlist while you jog and you wouldn't even feel the rub. Other than jogging, other simple activities do not cause so much annoying sound.
  • Most windcheater jackets run only till mid hip. However, this only is a limitation, when you do not pick proper bottom wear to pair it up. When coupled with bottoms that have quilted layers or wind pants and comfortable running shoe, complete protection can be achieved.

How is it different from a rain jacket?
The first difference is the length. Windcheaters extend up to mid-hip while rain jackets extend up to and even sometimes a little beyond waistline. The next differentiating factor is their level of resistance to water. While both types are water resistant, rain jackets are waterproof. Windcheaters only resist light drizzle.

Is it waterproof?
Waterproof character means to tolerate heavy rains and still keep the wearer dry. Windcheaters are made of nylon or polyester fibres. But they are not completely waterproof. They cannot resist heavy drenching. However, they are water resistant and protect the body from getting wet in light rains. A little advantage here is that they dry very fast because they absorb less in the first place.
