In today’s article we will be going through a selection of running jackets for men and women, which are well-made and most importantly, very affordable, all of them being under $50.
Because we value honesty, let us preface this selection by firstly saying that running jackets are not a necessity, especially if you are a casual runner.
The reason why they were developed is to meet certain requirements that other jackets might fulfill, but are usually a bit too much for running, if that makes sense.
Hence, why we have running jackets, which are designed to be lightweight and focus mostly on their wind-resistance and breathability features.
They provide a great protective layer through all seasons, especially during rainy days. With that being said, let’s take a look at our picks for you.

Baleaf Men’s Woven Hooded Windbreaker Running Jacket
We will start things off with the choices for men and the first one is by Baleaf, a woven windbreaker jacket, which is made of 100% Polyester. It is a very lightweight design, with water-resistant abilities and considerable breathability, which will prevent overheating, a common issue for runners.
The collar is hooded, which in turn is adjustable with drawstring, as is the lower hem. The sleeve cuffs are elasticized in order to fit snuggly and prevent the elements from getting through.
There are two side pockets with zipper closures and the main zipper itself is full-length and there is also chin guard on the collar, to prevent zipper chaffing of the neck and chin. This jacket comes in the colors: Dark blue, Orange and Sky blue.
