A sportswear that has evolved
The name of this jacket already gives clues as to what its original function was: to protect from the wind. And I did it in a very specific situation: in running training sessions in outdoor environments. Therefore, it has always been an essential top for all amateur and professional runners. However, the windbreak is now much more than that. Of course, it is still used to go out for a run, but also to go out on the street for a walk. It has therefore become an urban top that can be combined with a wide range of bottoms: tights and shorts, casual leggings, jeans and other options. This is demonstrated by the models of Tenth, the brand of Decimas responsible for designing sportswear. Our proposals have the necessary casual touch so that they can be part of a training set but also of an everyday one. The main colors are usually black and different types of gray, but secondary tones are often added to highlight their sporty and feminine style.
Characteristics of windbreaks
The first and greatest feature of windbreaks is their lightness. They barely weigh, thus avoiding placing a significant load during the race, which would limit performance. However, despite its lightness, this garment is designed with two layers: an inner layer that promotes perspiration and another outer layer that acts as a barrier against wind. Another common element in women's windbreakers is the hood. Its main function is not to cover the head on rainy days, but to provide extra protection in windy situations. The big benefit of this is the collar, which would look too exposed if only a crew-neck sweatshirt were worn. Pockets are not usually missing either. Logically, they are not large or large in capacity, but they do allow you to carry small items that could be useful during the race or after it: keys, coins or handkerchiefs are some cases. The closure chosen for the front is always the zipper, since it is the most comfortable and fastest system, something important in running: any runner may feel the need to buckle up or unfasten during the race, without having to stop for it. Finally, another feature that is usually common is that of its tight or slim cut: this is to prevent air pockets from occurring inside it on windy days. However, it should be remembered that women's windbreakers do not have elastic properties, so it is important to choose the right size in each case.
Other Decimas.com options outside of Women's Windbreaker
Beyond this section, you will find other jacket proposals that offer different features, although in many cases with a similar sport style. One option that you will find outside this section is that of coats: since women's windbreakers do not provide warmth, in Jackets you have other upper parts at your disposal that will. Sweatshirts with zip closure are other garments that often replace windbreaks. However, it should be remembered that these are usually made of cotton, so they are suitable for a street look or for a light sports session, but they are not so good for demanding training, since their breathability and drying capacity is lower.
