I am looking for jacket (possibly softshell) with a full front zip (preferably without hood) to be used for short hill walks (1 to 2 hours) where there can be some wind and sometimes a little light rain or drizzle, but can also be worn and look good around town.
Irish Spring/Summer weather which can vary from 10 degrees celcius (50 F) to 22 celcius (70 F) with sunshine, light rain, some wind variable conditions.
I am not looking for a Gortex rain coat that looks like a rain coat, and would prefer a softer 'casual jacket look'.
The two i have found are Patagonia Simple Guide jacket which weighs 481 gr (17 oz)
or Marmot Leadville Jacket 460 gr (16.2 oz)
Does anyone know of other suitable jackets which may be even lighter, and would be suitable for casual wear around town?
Thanks in advance,
