Ultralight Jacket – Brooks LSD
The modern ultralight jacket is an amazing tool. The Brooks LSD will bunch up to the size of your fist, yet it provides serious protection from wind and even rain.
“That was my, if I could use the word, safety blanket,” Jurek said. “When the rain became intense or cold, or the winds became intense like up in the northeast, a wind shell like the LSD – light, compressable — you can always carry it with you.”
Because you never know when you need wind protection or water protection, this is a wise investment for those who travel fast and light.
“It could save your life. A lot of trail runners don’t carry a lightweight jacket. There’s really no reason not to carry one,” Jurek said.
