We’re in that awkward stage of fall when it’s not quite warm enough to go without a layer, and not quite crisp enough to warrant wearing a full-on jacket. But when the temperature inevitably dips in the evening, you’ll want a little buffer from the chill. That’s where this lightweight number from Nike comes in. Made from water-repellent ripstop nylon, it’s technically meant for running (it has a breathable mesh lining and secured pockets for storing your small essentials), but we imagine it doing double-duty when you’re not hitting the pavement. The jacket packs into a convenient interior pocket, confirming just how un-bulky it is, and it would also make a nice raincoat, given its water-repellent properties. And today, it’s $51 — that’s 40 percent off — and available in a sleek silver, in addition to the black shown here.
