This windbreaker is lightweight, but has built-in UV protection so you're still shielded from the sun's rays. It also boasts essential thumb holes to keep the sleeves down and a zipped storage pocket on the back so you can run hands-free. And thanks to the pocket-dying technique, each jacket looks a little different. ($90;

This jacket can handle any downpour thanks a cinched hood and palm covers. We love the drop hem because it keeps your backside splatter-free from whatever you're kicking up while pounding the pavement. ($255;

As the name implies, this thing is sheer; you will see everything underneath it. The minimal seams allow for maximum airflow and ventilation in the most sweat-prone areas (center back and sleeves). There's even a stow pocket it can fold up into for easy carrying. ($120;

The reflective floral embrodiery packs a punch come nightfall, and the back is covered in it too, so you'll actually look like a beautiful bouquet of roses while you run. The roomy pockets and vented sleeves make it a comfortable option for the longest of runs. ($198; (Love running at night? Stock up on The Best New Reflective Workout Gear.)

The stripes look so sharp we’d wear it anywhere, but the underarm and back ventilation keep us cool for when our day calls for a sweat session. Consider their price justified by the fact you can wear it to both your workout and a solid hang with your friends.  ($462;
