We spend a lot of time running from point A to point B. We’re in the yoga studio in the morning. We’re rushing out for a coffee team meeting mid-morning. We’re walking the dog before the school’s office calls us to let us know that our darling angel forgot lunch…again. Pretty sure none of us have the time to sort of different ensembles to get us through the entire day. We embrace that intersection of style, function and quality.

Here are five on-the-go jackets that can keep up with us in the city for the in-between days:

PARAJUMPERS Olivia: Super stylish and flattering stretch polyester honeycomb knit sweatshirt and soft fleece on the inside with poly-padded ultra light 20 den nylon inserts. Two front pockets as well as a small zippered pocket at the back.

Features: Lycra trims. Underarm vents. Two-way front zipper. PJS rubber patch on the left sleeve.

The North Face’s 1996 Retro Nuptse Vest: A blast from the past – and now a modern must-have – this cozy throwback fit for wherever life takes you, whether mountain peaks or city streets!

Features: down-filled, a stowable hood, and stow in hand pockets.

Diadora Olivia Jacket (available at SportChek): We love this dark green grape leaf colour in this go anywhere jacket. The Olivia longer length  has the coziness of a fall jacket but the feather light appeal of a spring jacket.

Features: Water resistant, zippered front pockets, soft jersey lining, adjustable waist.

UNIQLO’s Ultra Light Down Jacket: This thin, lightweight and surprisingly warm jacket has us wanting it in every colour. Stylish enough to carry you throughout the day without the bulk. Folds up perfectly for travels too. Super affordable.

Features: flattering women’s cut, water repellent, technology in the seams helps ensure lightness. Zippered pockets. High collared neck.

LOLE Women’s Gisele Jacket: Equipped with their Downglow Insulation the jacket is impressively lightweight but protects for these months of being in-between fall and winter. The slimmer fit kits a thigh level and the pockets are cozy warm.

Features: two way zipper, high collar protection plus hood, zipper closure plus added snaps.
